When you order a steak at a restaurant or pick up some meat to grill at home, do you really know which type of steak is best for you? Some people prefer the tomahawk, which is meat from the cow's rib with an extra-long bone attached. For a leaner steak, you'll want the New York strip. Some experts say that one important factor to ordering a steak in a restaurant is to order whatever you want, but just order it with confidence. Oh, and there's no such thing as "pluses."
