Grass-Fed Angus Beef Top Sirloin Steak
5 vacuum sealed 1 lb. packs, 2 steaks per pack (approximately 5 lbs.)
A very popular cut, top sirloin steaks are leaner and less tender than top-of-the-line cuts like ribeyes or striploins, but they are juicy and flavorful when grilled or pan seared, as well as more affordable.
Grass-Fed & Pasture Raised
Silver Fern Farms Angus beef is grass-fed, raised free range on massive, pristine pastures in New Zealand. No hormone or antibiotic growth promotants are ever used, and GMO seeds are illegal there.
Because of New Zealand's moderate climate, these cattle are pasture raised year round, with free access to windbreaks and other structures for shelter from inclement weather.
Selected for Excellence
Silver Fern Farms is a co-op of small family farmers across New Zealand. The Angus program combines the Angus breed, renowned for superior marbling, flavor, and texture, with a grading system that ensures you get great beef every time. It has a clean, boldly beefy flavor without the heavy tallow characteristic of commodity beef.
Careful quality grading ensures it is consistently more marbled, tender, and flavorful than much of the grass-fed beef available in the US.
Not only is grass-fed beef more humane, it's better for you too. Grass-fed beef is lower in saturated fat as well as higher in valuable nutrients like vitamins A & E, conjugated linoleic acid (aka CLA), and omega-3 fatty acids.
Store frozen meats in your freezer until you’re ready to use it, then thaw only as much as you plan on cooking.
RECIPES & TIPS
Top sirloin steaks can be pan roasted, grilled, or broiled. Because of their leanness, it’s best not to cook them beyond medium (140°-145°). Always slice top sirloin across the grain for maximum tenderness. Before slicing, rest sirloin steaks covered loosely in foil for 5 minutes prior to serving or cutting, so they stay nice and juicy.
Top sirloin is a good choice for steak frites. Counter the meat’s leanness with a simple pan sauce, garlic butter or something rich and creamy like Citrus-Soy Beurre Blanc or Wild Mushroom Cream Sauce.
Top sirloin can also be cut into strips for stir-fried dishes or cubed for kebabs or the Vietnamese dish “Shaking Beef.”
