If you are looking for all-around great value, lean steak, look no further than the sirloin. This cut promises good flavor and moderately tender beef. This cut of meat sits towards the rear leg, meaning the muscles get more work here. The meat can be a little less tender than other cuts, but the sirloin excels at FLAVOR.
Sirloin is fantastic for marinating, grilling, pan-searing...and truly is a great versatile cut of meat that can be prepared any way you want. For maximum juiciness on any sirloin steak, don’t cook past medium. This cut is great as a simple meal or can be dressed up with extra fancy sides.If tenderness is your goal, try a long marinade, the salts and acid of a marinade help breakdown the connective tissue in the muscle and help tenderize the cut. Just cut open the package, pour the marinade in, then close it back up with a clothespin until you're ready to cook!
