What is a Petite Sirloin Steak?
A petite sirloin steak is a cut from the top sirloin (hip) of beef. The Tri-Tip has been removed and the remaining piece of top sirloin is sliced lengthwise before being cut into smaller steaks. This can be done for a couple of reasons. One is that it reduces the size of the individual steaks to more of an individual serving size, making it easier to serve and easier to flip on the grill. Another reason might be that by cutting a top sirloin of beef this way almost gives the steak the appearance of a large filet mignon or beef tenderloin steak. While this is a fairly tender cut of beef it is not to be confused with a beef tenderloin steak.
