Which cuts of beef to use

For this recipe it is best to use a very tender cut of beef. Cuts that work well are filet mignon steaks, strip loin steak, Porterhouse, delmonico, or t-bone. If you’re in California, use tri-tips. Sirloin steaks are too iffy of a cut, sometimes it is very tender and others it is not.
