Sirloin Steak

There's a big distinction between a top sirloin and a bottom sirloin. Both cuts are from an area at the back of the cow between the short loin and the round, but the top sirloin is much more tender (it sits right next to the tenderloin). Because the top sirloin is much more sought after, it is usually labeled specifically as "top sirloin." Bottom sirloin is more chewy and lean and can cut further as tri-tip, flap steak or just labeled generally as "sirloin steak." Food & Wine gives you dozens of recipes for sirloin from all over the world.
