    Pick any decent cut, wave over open flame a couple times.
    turn
    wave over open flame a few more times
    serve.

    I like ribeye 12oz sounds about right.

    the cut and size is less important than what quality you get. Prime is the best quality meat (top 2% of beef), so that's what you want. Cut is sort of a personal preference. Filet mignon is lean, and tender, but lots of people don't think it has the best flavor. Ribeyes are good, i really enjoy a good quality sirloin (and you can usually find these pretty large if you want also). I don't really care for t-bones or porterhouses, but i like most other cuts, ribeyes, strip steaks, filets, sirloins, they're all good. It's sort of a personal preference though, try a few cuts if you want, but the most important thing is that you buy prime, not choice or select.

    I like a good Ribeye. Prime is rediculously expensive. You don't need to spend that much. A good choice is fine but I'd stay away from Select. If it's not labeled Choice it's most likely Select. Find one with a lot of marbling (strips of fat in the meat). Ribeyes are pretty easy to find with good marbling. Meat with very good marbling is labeled Prime.

    For that beefy flavor I like Sirloin. London Broil is essentially a large Sirloin yet very inexpensive. Some butchers call their Flanks LB's though so watch out.

    i like skirt steaks, super cheap and plenty of flavor as long as you know how to prepare it.

    ribeye is amazing as long as the fat pattern is right.

    new york strip is great

    for the money, flank and sirloin
    overnight marinade is your friend
