Texas is known for a glittering array of foods, from Tex-Mex to our love of breakfast tacos (if you aren’t from Austin, yes, it’s a thing). But if there’s something we love almost as much as the Longhorns, it’s a delicious steak. From sirloin to strip, we sure do adore a good cut of beef. 

But what do Texans hate almost as much as they love steak? When a good cut of meat is poorly cooked. Just take this study of the food Texans hate the most. Spoiler alert: it’s a well-done steak. 

At The Austin Artisan, we agree that a well-done steak is practically a culinary sin. Do you know what else we think is a sin? Saving steak night for fancy restaurants you visit once in a blue moon. The best steakhouse in Austin, if you ask us, is home. Here’s how.

We served up a trio of short rib tostadas, beet with herbed goat cheese, and hamachi for a recent private dinner.

1. Delicious Steak, Anytime You Like

Maybe you’ve had a long day at the office. Maybe a chaotic schedule of kids, work, and household to-do’s have piled up on you. 

The cure for a whirlwind day is unwinding over a delicious meal, especially when it’s one that you don’t have to cook. And a juicy, perfectly done steak is at the top of just about everyone’s favorite foods list. 

That said, if you’re wondering where to find the best steak in Austin for a night IN, look no further. The Austin Artisan frequently includes steak in our weekly meal delivery services. Our clients LOVE it!!!  Grab a fork and a knife because tonight, juicy steak might just show up on your very own dinner table. 

Juicy USDA grade steaks on a cutting board.

2. Locally Sourced Meats

At The Austin Artisan, we believe that dining should be an experience that is healthy for the heart, mind, and soul and the planet. We are passionate about using in-season fruits and vegetables, sustainably sourced grains, wild-caught fish, and all of the other plentiful and healthy foods mother nature has to offer. We think this wholesome approach to cooking is the best gift we can give you as personal chefs.

Our steaks are no different. We love to use choice meats from local Austin butchers on our weekly prepared meal delivery menu as often as our clients like. 

3. Fussy Kids and Candlelit Dinners CAN Go Together

The best thing about enjoying a steak in the privacy of your own home is that you don’t need a babysitter. Nobody cares if the kids start crying. And if it’s just the two of you, nobody will stare if the romance overcomes you and you get to smooching. You can feel free to nibble on the steak (and each other’s ears). 

Texans love a rare-done steak.

The Best Steakhouse in Austin Might Just Be At Your Home Address

While there’s something to be said about dining out, dining in might be better. After all, while drippy candles and crisp white linens have their charms, there’s something truly decadent about enjoying a phenomenal steak dinner at home. 

The Austin Artisan’s prepared meal services include hand-picked cuts of choice beef. So if you have a hankering for a steak, don’t make it a once in a while thing. There’s so much more we have to offer, too, from wholesome seasonal foods to fresh seafood to delectable sauces and desserts; we cover it all. The best part is that you never have to wash a single dish. 

Check out our food profile and give something new and exciting a try without stepping outside your front door. Heck, maybe you could even make every Saturday night a gourmet restaurant experience.
