    Anyone Tried a Vegas Strip Steak?

    I made fajitas last night from two 12 oz trimmed cuts of the Vegas Strip Steak. The taste was amazing. Like a flatiron but even more tender.

    I used a fajita rub on the steaks and seared them on a super hot grill, using a 20 second flip, flip, flip, etc. method until they came up to 130° internal. Sliced across the grain. Served with sliced and sauteed poblanos, jalapenos, green sweet peppers, and onions to which I added a fajita sauce. The meat and veggies were layered onto a flour tortilla and doctored (or not) at our whim. So good.

    I need to buy more of these steaks.

    No photos because I didn't expect the meal to turn out quite so spectacularly delicious. Sorry about that. Next time.

    Any other Vegas Strip Steak fans out there?


    The finished product pic isn't showing.......?


      Hmmm. Only one photo, of a butcher showing the cut of meat. That's not showing, HawkerXP ?

      Edited to add: Oh, I just noticed the wink. You devil.

        I've had both the vegas and flat iron and found the taste, texture and look all were pretty much the same. Around my area the Vegas cut is really hard to find because most people don't know what it is and our butchers don't spend the time to remove it very often.


          Dadof3Illinois , I watched the butcher trim up these two Vegas Strip steaks for me, and she did it in a flash! It was so much fun to watch her knifework skills.

          You're right in that it tastes a lot like flatiron, which is also a favorite of ours. But this particular Vegas cut was so tender--more so than the flatiron steaks I'm able to source around our neck of the woods.



            fzxdoc Yea, I've had some awesome flat irons and some that were pretty tough. I personally don't think you could go wrong with either of these cuts and would prefer them over a skirt or flank steak any day!!!

              I agree one thousand percent. Skirt and flank steaks, while traditional, don't make as good fajitas, for example, at least to my taste buds.


            Never heard of it. Will put it on the must try list. Thanks!


              I haven't seem it in Minnesota. Hmm..


                Interesting. Seems kinda like a tri tip?


                A new cut may have to give it a try paired with PBR. Enjoy

                  I once played in the National Open, an annual chess tournament held in Las Vegas. I had a steak at one of the casinos on the strip. So yes, I have had a Vegas Strip steak!


                    uhhhh. ISTR vegas strip steaks are from cows rather than steers? ba da boom!


                      The meal you put together sounds amazing!


                        I have a houseful of family coming in this week for Father's Day, staying 10 days or so. I went back to the butcher shop yesterday and scored 6 more Vegas Strips for a reprise of my easy fajita dinner for one of the nights. It will give me a chance to see if this batch of steaks is as flavorful and tender as the two I seared up for our first try with them.

                        I'll report back.

                        Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                        We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                        The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                        The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
