Pick and Choose the Right Steak for the Right Occasion
Fresh Thyme Farmers Market has the best steaks in town—bar none. Each one is USDA Choice, Premium Black Angus beef-and an excellent source of protein. Choice beef is high quality with good marbling for tenderness and juiciness; the Black Angus breed signifies exceptional flavor.
Talk to our on-site butcher for help in picking out the perfect steak from our fresh selections. Go for a classic ribeye; it needs nothing more than a little salt and freshly cracked pepper. Or opt for top sirloin, flat irons, and flank steaks, which all benefit from marinating. Ask to have the steak trimmed and wrapped as well; it’s a free service we’re happy to provide.
Lean, with very little fat, filets are cut from the tenderloin. Considered the most healthful of steaks, every bite is tender and edible—no bone or gristle.
A classic steak, so named because of the T-shape bone in its center, this steak delivers on all fronts. It’s also two steaks in one: a filet and a strip.
C. Rib Steak
Cut from the rib section with the bone in, or the bone removed for a rib-eye, this is a tender steak. Heavy marbling (thin streaks of white fat through the steak) indicate an excellent, juicy cut.
D. New York Strip
Featuring less fat than the rib-eye, the New York strip has many fans. Choose steaks that are straight. These steaks usually have excellent marbling and are more tender than curved cuts.
