The top sirloin is a naturally lean, thick cut of steak with a bold, beefy flavor. This popular steak is delicious on its own, adds huge flavor to recipes, and cooks well with marinades and sauces.
Top sirloin is a favorite grilling steak that’s lean enough and affordable enough to enjoy any night of the week. At Omaha Steaks, we call top sirloin our “weeknight steak.”
Top sirloins are cut from the sirloin subprimal (one of the subprimals from the beef loin primal cut.) The sirloin subprimal is divided into two distinct sections, the top sirloin butt and the bottom sirloin butt.
Our top sirloin steaks are cut from the more tender top portion of this subprimal. The bottom sirloin butt provides tri-tip roasts and tri-tip steaks.
When you buy “sirloin steaks” at a grocery store, they’re not telling you anything about the location or quality of the cut. A true top sirloin steak (like ours here at Omaha Steaks ) is only from more tender top sirloin butt. They are cut thick and angular and make a great choice for grilling.
