    Saw in Sainsbury today

    Rump Steak - about £3.50 for 2 massive pieces
    Sirloin - £4 for half the size of the Rump
    Fillet Steak - About 2 inches thick but only 3 inches diameter, £5 ish
    Ribeye 21 days mature - £7 for the same size as the Sirloin.

    Is it the more expensive the better? I usually just get Rump Steak, a balance between price and the size of the beef you get.

    What do you prefer?

    you cant beat rump, BUT only if you get a good cut, most of the time its chewy nonsense.

    Sirloin is nice, although its always too small

    Fillet i am not to fussed on ...

    Rump or Sirloin it is


    :)

    Goto a butchers and ask them what they have which they advise, look at the rib eye, if it is very marbled as them if the fat cooks easily, if it is rump bigger = better, if it is sirloin it doesnt really matter nice meat is nice meat, with fillet its just how you cook it.

    Rib-eye is gorgeous, but its very expensive. I quite like a nice chop of rump, as long as its from a nice arse :p

    Sirloin if they offer 16 oz cut, or otherwise a rump.

    There's a place here that does a 64 oz :eek: :D

    I'd agree that rump can be the best, but often isn't - a safer bet is sirloin unless you know a good butcher
