You can always make room for steak

We love steak that much it almost borders on addiction. Our minds start picturing that perfectly seared steak  the moment one of us in the office mentions going to a steakhouse. If you're a serious meat fiend like us we know you're going to find it hard to resist going to a steakhouse after reading this. We wouldn't even blame you for going to the end of the blog to pick a place from the list we've put together just for you.

Muslims love steak. Fact!

Steaks were once reserved for special occasions or a treat you'd give yourself.  But now there are so many Halal steakhouses across the UK you'll be hard pressed not to find one. If you're like us you can enjoy a steak once a week. Another amazing thing is that steakhouses you wouldn't expect to serve Halal steaks have opened up their eyes to how much we Muslims love to eat meat. They can cater to our dietary needs. All you have to do is pre-order it or some even stock Halal cuts.  How cool is that! Here's a crazy fact for you, Muslims (that's over 3 million of us) eat 15% of the total meat eaten in the UK. Now that's a lot!

You eat steak because of the way it makes you feel

You don't eat steak because it's good for you, you eat it for the unique taste and the way it makes you  feel. A well cooked steak with the perfect char, a meaty texture, beefy flavour, and a good amount of fat running through it will beat some of the best meals you've had.  

Ordering a steak can be confusing AF

"What cut do I get? How shall I get it cooked? Should I order a wet or dry aged steak?" All these questions can make ordering a steak confusing. We've broken this down to help make it a little bit easier to order the perfect steak for you at your local Halal steakhouse.

Steak cuts

Whether you like a small steak or like us 'a bigger the better' steak, the first thing you'll choose is the cut of meat.  Generally the most tender steaks come from the loin and rib of the cow and the least tender comes from near the 'round' or booty of the cow.

Here are some common steak cuts you'll find in a steakhouse:

Fillet - Let's start with one of the most expensive steaks, sometimes known as (ahem in a French accent :P) Filet Mignon or Châteaubriand. It's the most tender of the steaks and very lean so if you're watching your diet then this is the one to go for but it is pricey. It has a mild, delicate flavour.

Sirloin - This steak has a good amount of fat running through it and it has a strip of fat on the outside. It's quite expensive but tender, flavoursome and juicy.

Rib Eye - It has a lot of fat running through the meat and has a super beefy flavour. It's really juicy and tender.

Rump - This steak although tasty it can be tough because it does more work than other parts of the animal but it packs a lot of flavour and cheap compared to the other cuts. If it's your first time eating a steak we say this cut is the safest bet.

T bone - You get two steak in one with the T bone; a sirloin on one side and a small filet on the other separated by a bone. In terms of the flavour you get the best of both worlds; super-tender, buttery Sirloin, and a lean piece of filet.

The Tomahawk - It's a Rib Eye that has a long rib bone attached to the side, which when you look at it resembles an axe. This is a BIG steak with a long handle that could probably be used to chop down trees (we're kidding :P). It has a lot of flavour and a good amount of fat running through it. 

Aging process

Good Halal steakhouses will buy in steaks that have been aged for a minimum of 21 days some going upwards of a couple of months. The aging process tenderises the meat and adds more flavour.

Wet ageing involves vac packing meat in plastic and letting it age in a fridge. This type of aging means there isn't fluid loss like with dry aging. Wet aged beef tastes slightly more metallic but lacks the depth of flavour of dry aged beef.

Dry aging (our favourite) involves storing cuts of beef in a controlled environment for several weeks to several months. This process tenderises the meat and adds to the flavour. Steaks have a deep roasted more nutty flavour when dry aged. But steaks shrink in size due to the loss of water during the dry aging process.


We're definitely not going to tell you how to have your steak because everyone is different. Some like giving their jaw muscles a good work out and others like their steak practically raw. We ain't judging no one.
