"Beef - it's what's for dinner."
- Slogan of the Cattlemen's Beef Board and National Cattlemen's Beef Association.

The word "steak" comes from the mid-fifteenth century terms steik or stekys, refering to "a thick slice of meat cut for roasting or grilling or frying." Steak is a favorite food of people around the world.

While steaks can be cut from virtually any type of meat, including pork, venison, and fish, the term most often refers to beefsteak. Restaurants that specialize in serving steak are called steakhouses. In many countries, including the United States and Australia, menus generally consist of several different cuts of steak that can be cooked to order, from rare to well done. Steaks are often served with salads, vegetables, mushrooms, rolls, and a starch, such as mashed potatoes, a baked potato, or steak fries.

Some steak cuts, such as prime rib and t-bone steak, are more highly prized than others, as are some types of cattle. For example, the Japanese Wagyu is known for the fine marbling of fat within the meat. Some Wagyu cattle are treated as celebrities, receiving massages and drinking wine.

In popular culture, a steak dinner is representative of an expensive meal, date night, or a celebration. The wealthy may be depicted as enjoying a steak dinner in juxtaposition to the hungry lower class. Many cartoons feature starving characters picturing their companions as giant steaks.
