If you don’t like a great steak then you’re probably not from Oklahoma and most likely anti-American. Of course I am only kidding cause everyone in my family loves a great steak. When we celebrate, for any reason, we cook steaks on the grill. Just thinking about it is making me hungry for a T-bone! So, if you are a steak lover like just about everyone I know but are still conscious, or curious, about the amount of calories that is found in your favorite steak this article is a breakdown of the different cuts for you.
