Do you love a good steak? Do you prefer a well marbled USDA prime aged beef or perhaps a Japanese Kobe Tajima beef from the Hyōgo Prefecture? Which cut is your preferred choice? Is it the classic ribeye, flatiron, skirt, sirloin, filet mignon or perhaps the rump steak? Then finally, there is the doneness. Some people swear by medium rare only while others may even prefer it rare!

This creative printable activity seeks to explore the delicious world of beef steaks and different types of options one has at the butcher shop or steak house. Let's fire up the (imaginary) grills!
