The best cuts of beef for a juicy steak are well-marbled cuts with visible flecks of white fat throughout the cut.

The USDA’s beef grading system helps with this: beef graded as “prime” has the most marbling and is cut from young, well-fed cattle; beef graded as “choice” has less marbling but will still be tender, juicy, and flavorful. Both are ideal choices for grilling!

More specifically, here are the beef cuts that are a cut above the rest – for the grill, at least!
