Cutting your steak

Have you ever tried cutting your own (raw) steaks from your own roast because a roast was cheaper than the already cut steaks?

I’ve done this a few times over the years and I’d like to think I’ve improved my steak cutting skills, after all I have my nice piece of beef, a wonderfully sharp knife and a nice thick chopping board.

Alas in this department my skills have not really improved as much as I think and I get these wonky slices of steak that when cooked are raw in some areas and over cooked in others.

I know my knife skills are no where near a butchers and his … or her job is pretty safe, at least from me.

Have you had success in this area?

Thank heavens at least I can cut a chicken into pieces, I have great scissors.

    I’ve minced up a roast due to it being cheaper than buying mince, but never steaks. I too would have wonky steaks.

      Phew, glad I’m not the only one.
