Oyster steak is a small cut of beef taken from above the backbone on the rump of the cow. It usually weighs only 6 to 8 oz. and is a tender piece of meat. Oyster steak has a high moisture content and does well when cooked using high heat, such as with grilling, broiling or pan searing. Enjoy your oyster steak as is or topped with sauteed onions, mushrooms or steak sauce. Have the steak with a side of salad, vegetables, baked potato or rice for a balanced meal.
