Best cut of beef

I am just starting to organise my diet and want to eat more steak to bulk. What do you think is the best cut of beef to buy (e.g. sirloin, rump, etc.)? Ideally I want a steak that I can fry that is quite lean.

Thanks for all the responses on my previous steak post btw!!

    TBH - It's a case of looking at the meat when in the butchers / supermarkets. Just void the ones with that looks like white lines (fat) there are loads of lines.
    Don't worry about the fat around the edges, this can easily be cut off. It's the fat in the middle you need to watch out for.

    Fillet, sirloin and rib eye are the best tasting and most tender, aswell as dearest, but any steak does the job. I eat alot of braising steak, its relatively cheap and still quite tender. Eat the red bits only

    to fry it would have to be sirloin or the sirloin area (medalion, t-bone porterhouse). for a slow stew the tougher and cheaper meat is good (rump, topside, silverside). leave the fat on when you cook it, but if you dont want to eat it then dont eat it. you can boil the marbling out if you want.

    silverside is a very reasonable joint id personally go for a knuckle joint it's the same as a top rump only trimmed a lot more and is very lean
