The Ideal Types of Steaks for Grilling
There are so many different types of foods you can put on a hot grill these days to make a delicious meal that we had a hard time trying to decide what food category we wanted to cover here. The fact of the matter is, as long as it doesn't slip through the grill grates, you can grill it. Corn, peppers, swordfish, shrimp, steaks -- you name it, you can most likely grill it.
Today however we're going to cover the basics: the best types of steaks for grilling (because let's face it, who doesn't love a perfectly grilled steak?). Below is a list of Cerra's Market's top favorite pieces of steak to slap on the grill.

But where can you find a great cut of any of these steaks? While many grillers may resort to their local chain grocery store for steak, we recommend stepping out of your comfort zone and heading to a local butcher shop. Cerra's Market is both a cut-to-order butcher shop serving up fresh meat as well as a traditional Italian deli and catering company. What makes butcher shops unique is that the pieces are hand-picked by the experts, so you know you're getting a great cut every time.
There are a few things you'll need to look for when choosing your next steak to grill, including:
How well the steak is marbled. The white "marbled" lines running throughout the steak give it great flavor and texture.
Whether or not the cut is Prime cut or Choice cut. At Cerra's Market, our Prime cut meats are available at great prices.
A marinade or finishing sauce! Although not always required (simple salt and pepper will do just fine in most cases), you can elevate any steak and dish with a marinade from Cerra's Market.
So what are you in the mood for? Head to Cerra's Market on your way home from work and pick up a cut-to-order steak from our Italian deli in Saugus!
