We asked Lagniappe Specialty Meats in Texarkana what the best steaks are.
There are so many choices for meat and steak out there. Lagniappe Specialty Meats and owner Bobby Duhon can help you pick out the right type of meat and steak for whatever occasion. Bobby’s experience growing up around a meat market helps him to select and cut premium meats. Bobby’s favorite steaks are “the prime cut of ribeye or the prime cut of sirloin.” The majority of his customers’ favorite cuts of steak are ribeyes from select to choice to prime and even wagyu.
There’s a great reason why these are the favorite cuts of steak. Ribeye steaks come from the rib section and contains a good bit of fat marbling making it tender when cooked. Wagyu literally translates as Japanese cow. They are famous for their incredible amounts of fat marbling in the beef. Prices for Wagyu run around $100 per pound and up!
A great tip he offers to ask about the freshness of the meats. Great butchers keep an eye on the dates and tries to provide the freshest cut of steak.
Lagniappe Specialty Meats offers several choices of steaks. Choose between regular or Cajun-seasoned. Many have been quick frozen to preserve the freshness and the flavor. In addition to the beef, they offer deboned chickens stuffed with a variety of fillings, frozen gumbo and soups, pork, fresh sausage and boudin. They even prepare turducken to enjoy year round. You’ll find everything in their coolers ready for you to take home and cook.
They also serve a select menu of hot and tasty Cajun delicacies. Try the fried boudin balls or the cracklins. Stop by for a plate lunch. Lagniappe Specialty Meats is located at 4012 Jefferson Avenue in Texarkana, Ark.
