Sirloin Meat Types
The sirloin portion of the animal actually refers to several cuts that are located at the hind quarters. Some of the cuts are labeled the sirloin, the tenderloin, the top sirloin, and the bottom sirloin. The sirloin is at the top near the back bone. The tenderloin is just below the sirloin. This is a lean and softer cut of meat. The top sirloin is in the center of the muscle. And, the bottom sirloin is located toward the underside of the cow or bull.
The recipe we are using is for the top sirloin portion of the animal.
While it is not as tender as the filet mignon, also aptly referred to as the tenderloin, it is a very flavorful cut of beef. The tenderloin is extremely lean, whereas the top sirloin often has a bit of fat running through it. The fat helps to tenderize the meat while it is cooking and adds additional flavor.
