While not technically a steak, Salisbury steak is a delicious combination of ground steak made into beef patties. Best served swimming inside of some traditional British mushroom and onion gravy, it's a comforting, mouthwatering meal that satisfies every pang. Also, although they could be mistaken for hamburger steaks, Salisbury steaks tend to use minced onions and other ingredients within the patties.

Marbled Filet Mignon

When meat is 'marbled', all it means is that the cut includes the fat. While 'fat' has been mislabeled a 'bad word', the fat in steak is actually what makes it so delicious. A steak without a little bit of marbling, for example, will likely turn out dry and near-inedible. Filet mignon is the King of Steaks because of its marbling and it's as expensive as you'd expect. However, steak connoisseurs recommend it above all else.
