What is a baseball steak?

The baseball cut gets its name from its rounded shape. This steak is cut from the center of the top sirloin. It’s lean, thick and flavorful, similar to filet mignon, at a smaller price. A baseball cut steak is not commonly found in a grocer’s meat case but the cut can be requested from a local butcher.

Oven Rack Positions Guide

How you arrange your oven racks can make you a better cook. Here’s when to use your oven’s upper, middle, and lower rack positions for the best baking and roasting results.

Top
This position is ideal for using a broiler.

Middle
The default position. It’s ideal for most foods since it situates the item in the middle of the oven, allowing the hot air to circulate evenly around the food.

Bottom
This position affords close proximity to the heat source that maintains heat as you cook, making it perfect for pizza or other flatbreads that require a short exposure to intense temperatures.

Why Well-Done Is the Wrong Way to Cook Steak

Well-done steak is tough, dry and flavorless, but some people still prefer their steaks that way. Here’s how to handle that situation.

Your best bet is to buy an inexpensive steak, something tough and lean like a sirloin steak, round steak, or rump steak. Cook it over medium heat for about 12 minutes on each side, and serve that to your guests. It’s going to taste like a cinderblock anyway, so why throw away good steak (and good money) on someone who’ll never taste the difference?
