Choosing the Right Steak

Don’t know your rump from your rib-eye? Then let’s talk steak; here’s our quick guide to help you choose which one suits you…

All these steaks are quick and easy to cook; simply pan fry or grill to your liking.  They go well with different sauces; many of which you can order online for nationwide delivery, or you can choose directly from our Himalayan Salt Chamber in our shop in Ilkley, West Yorkshire.

We deliver our heritage breed, aged steaks all over the UK. When you choose our steak, you’ll be choosing heritage breed steak which comes from regional farmers who share our commitment to husbandry, welfare and outstanding quality. Heritage breeds have higher welfare standards, a lower carbon footprint and exceptional flavour. We regularly visit our farmers and ensure that our team understand responsible farming, provenance and welfare.

Here’s our guide to ‘what’s what’ when it comes to Lishman’s steak:

Fillet Steak is often considered to be the best, particularly by David’s wife! It is the most expensive of the steaks on offer also the most tender but possibly not the most flavoursome.  

Cut from the other side of the ribs from the sirloin, this muscle does very little work, so it’s very lean and tender.

Ideal for impressing your family and friends at a dinner party.

Perfect with a peppercorn, mushroom or blue cheese sauce.


If you’re on a budget a Rump Steak won’t break the bank; it’s a cheaper cut, but rich and flavoursome.

This cut is taken from the rump muscle at the top of the hind-quarter and is of medium tenderness.

This steak works well with a mustard or peppercorn sauce.



The Cote de Boeuf  is a French trimmed cut of beef rib, characterised by its natural fat covering and succulence from being matured and cooked on the bone.

Seal in a pan on both sides and then finish off in a hot over for 10-15 minutes. One rib will serve two.

Perfect for dinner parties and special occasions.

Serve with Bearnaise sauce and French fries.


The Rib Eye has wonderful marbling; the natural fat (the ‘eye’) keeps the meat succulent, rich and flavoursome.

Keep it simple with some chips and salad.




The classic Sirloin Steak never fails to deliver.

It’s cut from the loin and is perfectly marbled to keep the steak tender and juicy.

Serve with a rich Bearnaise sauce.  Medium to high tenderness.



A Veal Chop is leaner and more tender than other cuts of beef.

It has a subtle and milder flavour.

Add any sauce to make this an interesting and delicate dish.

Our pantry stocks an array of delicious sauces and accompaniments, plus we have our homemade pots of sauces available to buy from the counter.
