Big fan of Aldi Sirloin, never had much luck with Lidl. Must try a Striploin.

Striploin is a better cut than Sirloin

Love striploin, much much nicer than sirloin. Tried to get striploin in a UK butchers and they insisted it was the same as sirloin. Ah no!

A T-Bone (Porterhouse if big enough) is actually 2 steaks in one: fillet and striploin.

Lidl have their fillets on sale a lot. Usually 4 euros sale price for a decent sized and tasty steak. Vacuum wrapped so worth picking up a few when on sale. I got one last week but not sure if sale price still there this week.

Rib-eye is better than those. Fillet way too lean for me, not sure why most people seem to think it's the best.

When done right, a well marbled fillet will melt in your mouth like butter. But you're correct that rib-eye is a fattier cut.

Aldi does Angus beef, Lidl does Hereford. I much prefer Angus.

You need a bit of fat for flavour.

Butcher>aldi>lidl>super valu>tesco for me. Main reason in preferring butcher is being able to ask for a thick cut. I hate when the pre packed sirloins especially are actually really big steaks but only a cm thick. Such a waste

A good fillet has no marbelling.

Some butchers (dry hung, Angus, 21+days)>Tesco (will cut to order)>Aldi (often very different size steaks in the twin pack>Super Valu>another protein entirely

Anyone else notice the M&S meal for two for €14 had miniscule, 1cm sirloins last weekend? I gave them a big fat pass but there were people firing half a dozen packs into their trolleys as fast as the staff could stock the shelves.
