In the years since we launched our Web site and online butcher shop, the Lobel’s Culinary Club has become the cornerstone of our communications with our customers old and new. Our e-mails span the latest news about products and promotions to help you plan peak dining experiences for family meals, special events, and casual entertaining.
A fundamental part of the Culinary Club content comes from our unique perspective as butchers on meat handling and preparation. And while there are many recipes to share, we want to help you go beyond specific recipes to a wider world of in-depth explorations of cooking techniques. When you understand the fundamentals, you are free to invent your own culinary masterpieces.
We believe the more you know about preparing the finest meat money can buy, the more you will enjoy serving it to your family and friends.
With the launch of our expanded Culinary Club, we’ve created a living archive of knowledge that is gleaned from past e-mails and will grow with future e-mails.
Within the Culinary Club, we hope you’ll find numerous and useful resources to enhance your confidence in preparing the finest and freshest meats available, and ensure your absolute delight with the results.

The Lobel family of Lobel’s Prime Meats in Manhattan and Lobel’s of New York online butcher shop are fourth- and fifth-generation butchers. With our Cut of the Month series, we will bring you their wealth of knowledge and expertise on specific cuts of meat, including their unique characteristics, preparation methods, and how to select the best cut.
This is what Florence Fabricant at The New York Times had to say about our Cut of the Month:
“Most of the time, wagyu, the densely marbled, ultra-tender Japanese-style beef, comes in premium steak cuts like strip loin and rib-eye… [Lobel’s] also has American wagyu rib-cap steaks to sear and slice on the bias like the flank steak but that are lusher still. The rib-cap meat is so rich that six of us could not finish a pound and a half of it.”

It seems like there is a holiday out there to celebrate just about everything. And plenty of them are very specific or just plain weird food holidays—such as “Something on a Stick Day,” “Turkey Neck Soup Day,” or “Chocolate Covered Insects Day.” But the one food holiday that we actually look forward to each year is National Filet Mignon Day on August 13.
The preparation of London Broil is a thoroughly American creation, one that dates back to colonial times, but was different from today’s version. Back then, a relatively thin and less tender cut of steak was pan-fried and cut into thin slices on the bias across the grain.
Today’s version includes marinating the steak for several hours to tenderize it before cooking it with high heat, either in a broiler or on the grill, to no more than medium-rare.
