T-bone steaks offer the best of both worlds. You get a true center-cut strip steak and a piece of filet mignon on the bone. The T-bone is closely related to the porterhouse, a cut that sits adjacent on the beef short loin. Compared to the porterhouse, the T-bone has a smaller piece of filet, but more tender strip steak. We recommend this steak for anyone who loves the rich flavor of a strip, but also wants a bonus piece of filet.
