The T-Bone steak is a premium cut of beef derived from the back or loin area of a beef animal and contains the same muscles that are found in tenderloins and strip steaks. In the T-Bone, the tenderloin and strip steak muscles are separated by a T-shaped bone. Try using this cut in grilling, and pan-searing recipes.
