Just because January tends to trend as a chance to detox and work on our health goals, it doesn’t mean we can’t look ahead to a little indulgence and pig out on sumptuous steaks! With so many incredible cuts of beef out there, it’s maddening to choose just one – so we’ve put together a list of our favourite (m)eateries that’ll have you covered, no matter the occasion. From T-bone to Sirloin and Rib-Eye to Filet Mignon, there’s sure to be something to satisfy those steak cravings…
