Other Cuts & Preparations

Here’s an alphabetical list of all the joints where I took down an alterna-cut, along with a link to the full review. Scores out of 10 are for the flavor of the cuts listed beside the score. Note that some of the sirloins listed here can truly hang with some of the best NY Strips that I’ve had.
