Summer is officially in full swing and the smells of the grill are in the air. The outdoor cookout invites are flying into your inbox and you are tasked with bringing the meat. How do you choose the best cut for your cookout? Juicy burgers with cheese? Buttery filet mignon steaks? Tender grass-fed ribeyes?
Possibilities are endless and really, you can’t go wrong with any choice. So, grab a cocktail (or mocktail) and let’s deep dive into your beef choices.
Pre, has four cuts that are perfect for grilling: ribeye, top sirloin, filet mignon, and New York strip. Our grass fed & finished beef is the top choice to make all your beef-based meals more delicious and nutritious. Throw them on the grill with a bit of seasoning to enjoy a nice summer day outside. Some cuts will work better in certain recipes, so let’s break down when to reach for a ribeye versus a top sirloin steak.
Ribeye steaks have great marbling, making them superior on the grill. They are made for each other. Ribeye has a bold taste thanks to the intramuscular fat which runs all the way through and gathers near the middle of the cut.
The extra fat of this cut carries flavor, so it’s a perfect choice for a bit of seasoning from a dry rub or as is seasoned with kosher salt and pepper. However, it’s easier to overcook the ribeye, so we’d recommend using a meat thermometer to check doneness while cooking at a high heat. Don’t rely on a timed cook. Pay attention to the cut to achieve your preferred temp.
Top Sirloin is truly one of the most versatile cuts we carry. While it may be leaner than the other cuts on this list (the Ribeye, in particular), it does have one of the best flavors, which is why you’ll find loads of recipes on our site which use the Top Sirloin as the main star.
If you like its natural flavor, you can keep this cut simple for grilling purposes: just a bit of salt and maybe some fresh garlic will do the trick. Because this steak is lean, and lacks fat for flavor, don’t be afraid to add your own! A chimichurri marinade or a spicy dry rub pair beautifully with this steak. You can also slice it thinly and top it on salads or sandwiches after grilling. As always, don’t forget to let it rest 5 minutes first.
Pro tip: tap your steak dry from the marinade before you put it on the grill, especially if the marinade contains sugar, to prevent it from burning.
The filet mignon is our top-selling cut, and for very good reason. It’s tender, full of flavor, and simple enough that it pretty much fits into any dish, with any side. It’s a top choice for grilling, though it’s more commonly cooked in a skillet.
But we challenge anyone to try a grilled filet mignon and not fall in love with this amazing cut. Because it’s also more expensive than the other cuts, we recommend enjoying its natural flavors this time, adding just a sprinkle of salt and an herb based compound butter. With some grilled veggies next to it or a salad, you’ll get a well-balanced and delicious meal with a tasty charred sear from the grill.
Lastly, we have the New York strip, an amazing cut popular for its signature fat cap that brings so much flavor and tenderness to the table/grill.
And for grilling? It’s one of our top choices because it needs little preparation beforehand. Add some salt and minimal seasoning and it’s ready to go on the grill for 3-4 minutes on each side until it’s perfect. You can also slice it into thin strips to use on top of a crostini as an appetizer!

"Real talk...since my cancer was environmental and not hereditary I am super conscious of what goes into my body, especially protein. Post chemo left my body super low in iron so steak remains in my diet. I found Pre a few months ago and it’s the only meat I buy. Grass-fed, no added hormones and most importantly affordable. Eat better for your body people!"jaqueline
"Your steaks, especially the sirloin, ribeye, and filet mignon are absolutely delicious. Wasn’t sure how these cuts would taste grilled but they taste just as good if not better than cuts I’ve had a top notch steakhouses."Mario
"When our son was diagnosed with a rare medical disorder, it meant that we would have to change our diet as a family. Because his metabolism doesn’t function like a typical person’s, we have to be very careful about what we feed him. One of the changes we made was to use more grass-fed and finished beef in our cooking. We decided to give Pre a try, and we are so happy with the quality and taste of the meat. Buying from Pre gives us peace of mind and we feel confident knowing that we are using a product in the top of its class."Lindsay
"This beef is AMAZING! I'm from Wisconsin so a huge steak lover. This is some of the best beef, I've experienced and I've had beef around the world. It's a must try, and you'll understand what I mean."Tracy
"My husband and I loved having these filets once a week. I sear both sides and "in-between" in a very hot small Lodge cast iron skillet. I use a spatter guard. Then I place the skillet in a 400 degree oven for between 2min. 10-20 seconds. Perfect medium minus filets. My mouth is watering as I write this!!"Mary M.
"These steaks and other Pre products have been a staple in our home for over a year now and we continue to be fully satisfied with their consistently good quality and flavor. They are the perfect size, are delicious and easy to cook. Add Pre’s amazing customer service to it and you end up with an exceptional overall product!"K.G.
