What Is
The Least Nutritious Cut Of Steak?
By TALIN VARTANIAN
There are various steak cuts that are high in fat and have heightened buttery flavors, including chuck eye, porterhouse, and Denver steak. As an alternative, there are extra-lean beef cuts that are low in cholesterol, saturated fat, and total fat, such as a bottom round roast and top sirloin.
However, these steaks are not even close to the king of saturated fats, which happens to be the least nutritious cut of steak, as well as extremely pricy, with a price tag of around $100. So what on Earth is this steak and why does it rank so low on the nutritional scale?
A tomahawk ribeye steak comes from the loin of a steer, a muscle that doesn't get exercise too often. Its high-fat content yields those coveted butter-like flavors but makes this the least nutritional steak of all, with 22 grams of total fat and 10 grams of saturated fat per every 100 grams.
