If Denver is the capital of Colorado, the Denver steak is the capital of flavor. This cut comes from the same muscle as the ribeye, but it’s a little different in texture.
Also called the “zabuton” in Wagyu beef, the Denver steak is extraordinarily marbled and surprisingly tender. So tender, it’s been likened to a plush sitting cushion (we didn’t make that up).
Cook it up and serve it with dipping sauce and some wasabi to see just how delicious this melt-in-your-mouth cut can be.
