Full Answer

Ball tip steaks are great for grilling and absorb rubs and marinades nicely, which makes up for their tendency to be tough. They are not as tender as T-bones or rib eyes but they still have a good flavor for the price. Ball tip steaks are best grilled, braised, pan-fried or pan-broiled. Ball tip steaks should be marinated prior to grilling in order to increase tenderness of the meat.
