The Denver Steak

What is a Denver Steak?

The Denver steak is a cut taken from the shoulder area of the cow, specifically a section underneath the shoulder blade bone. This muscle doesn't get used much by the animal, which gives the cut a tender profile. It's a boneless cut of beef, which can be further tenderized by pounding. It's a bit of a cross between a New York strip and a ribeye. It is similar to a flank steak, but with a more uniform thickness. Denver steaks are typically sliced thin and served in sandwiches or as part of a salad, and have a rich, beefy flavor. For safe consumption, it’s recommended to cook Denver steak to an internal temperature of 145°F.
