best cut of steak? (from former non-meat eater)

lenorelenore | May 1, 2012 03:58 PM

I've eaten very little meat most of my adult life. some years strict vegetarian, some not but still very little meat (and what I do eat is usually consumed in restaurants)

Just read "Why we get fat" by Gary Taubs and so am trying to change diet--low carb, more protein.

I'm so ignorant about beef--what cuts of beef should I look for? I'm thinking of trying to pan-fry in cast iron smallish amounts for lunch a few times a week.

Sirloin? Skirt? I stand there in meat dept and have no idea. Flavorful and not too fatty?

many thanks!
