Cut of the Month- Sweetheart Steak

Saint Valentine’s Day, commonly known as Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is observed on February 14 each year. Around the world, people celebrate Valentine’s Day by showing appreciation for the people they love or adore. Some give greeting cards, chocolates, jewelry or flowers – particularly roses – to their partners or admirers on Valentine’s Day.
Valentine’s Day symbols include the heart-shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid. However, contrary to popular belief, romance isn’t about the birds and the bees–it’s about butterflies. Butterflied steaks, to be exact.
What is butterflying? It’s a butchering technique in which a boneless cut of meat is cut horizontally through its thickness leaving a “hinge” so that the meat casweetheart steakn be spread apart, resulting in a cut that lays out like a butterfly.
The ribeye steak is perfect for being butterflied into the shape of a heart. Since it is shaped somewhat like an elongated half-circle with a point toward one end, it opens up nicely into a heart-shape when butterflied.
