Top Sirloin Steak
Porter & York’s top sirloin steak is very lean cut with a rich beef flavor. This steak is also commonly referred to as a baseball cut or center cut sirloin.
Top Sirloin comes from the primal cut loin, sub-primal sirloin on the beef animal. The top sirloin is a boneless muscle that is located between the short loin and round sections, towards the rear of the animal. Top sirloin is known for having a strong beef flavor. The top sirloin is comprised of two muscles, with the triangle shape muscle commonly called a culotte. We separate the muscles and send out a true center cut steak.
The term sirloin is derived from the Old French term surlonge, meaning above the loin. Other terms that are used for top sirloin are baseball steak, top butt steak or center cut sirloin. Top sirloin is a very versatile cut that can be grilled, broiled, pan-fried or cut into small strips and sautéed. The top sirloin is a lean cut, with little marbling that should be prepared to medium, or medium rare. This cut takes rubs and marinades well and will improve the eating experience if extended cooking is desired.
What is Sirloin Steak?
The sirloin steak is cut from the back of the animal.
In a common U.S. butchery, the steak is cut from the rear back portion of the animal, continuing off the short loin from which T-bone, porterhouse, and club steaks are cut. The sirloin is actually divided into several types of steak. The top sirloin is the most prized of these and is specifically marked for sale under that name. The bottom sirloin, which is less tender and much larger, is typically marked for sale simply as “sirloin steak”. The bottom sirloin in turn connects to the sirloin tip roast.
