Food Field Trips » Loin & Sirloin
Porterhouse, New York Strip, Filet Mignon. You know the names (and what you like!) but what's the real difference? Northeast Family Farm's John Stowell explains the steak-friendly cuts of beef, how their textures and flavors differ and which ones might surprise you when grilling at home. Maybe it's time to pick a new favorite cut?
John Stowell has been Director of Fresh Meats and Sustainable Programs at Dole & Bailey, Inc., a food service distributor, in Woburn, MA, for a decade. John grew up on a ranch and farm in Colorado and his first job was as a cattle buyer for a meat packing plant. It would seem his career path was determined from then on.
