Your steak dilemmas solved … introducing the Baseball-Cut Strip Steak
Like your eggs over-easy or sunny-side up? Prefer chocolate ice cream or vanilla? Love living in the city or in the country? Crave a filet mignon or a strip steak for dinner? Life is full of dilemmas—but if you’re stumped over that last one, Allen Brothers has an ingenious solution: the new Baseball-Cut Strip Steak, a beautifully marbled, intensely flavorful Allen Brothers strip steak cut into a compact 6-ounce size. Extra-thick and with nicely rounded edges, it looks almost like a baseball, hence the name.
Whether you try the Baseball-Cut Strip Steak on its own (in packs of 4 or 8), or as part of Allen Brothers president Todd Hatoff’s new signature Todd’s Prime Assortment (2 Baseball-Cut Strip Steaks, 2 Filets Mignon, 2 Center Cut Ribeye Steaks), you’ll take the guesswork out of the which-steak-to-order dilemma.
Now, how do you cook the steaks? Easy. The Baseball-Cut Strip Steak, the Filet Mignon, and the Center Cut Ribeye are all prepared pretty much the same way: Just preheat your oven to 400F; season the steaks with salt and pepper; heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high heat until almost smoking; and sear the steaks one minute on each side. Then roast the steaks in the oven for 4-6 minutes (give or take an extra minute or two, depending on the size) for medium rare.

Speaking of baseball and dilemmas: If you’re like me and you were born in the Chicago area but grew up in Houston, during baseball season you’re forever torn between the Astros and the Cubs— which can get a little dicey sometimes. No one said life would be easy!
