This versatile steak can be used in a multitude of ways. Whether cubed for kabobs, sliced into strips for stir-fry or grilled straight up as a steak, you can count on Top Sirloin for good value and great flavor. Consider our Easy Sirloin Thai Salad, Greek Beef Steak and Hummus Plate or Grilled Steak and Fresh Mozzarella Flatbread for your next Top Sirloin meal!
With nicknames like New York Strip or Kansas City Steak, you’ve probably enjoyed a Strip Steak at home or at a restaurant! Delicious beefy taste and lots of mealtime versatility make this cut a popular choice! Try our colorful Pomegranate Steak with Quinoa or simply delicious Beef Steaks with Sweet-Soy Drizzle.
There’s good reason it’s called the Tenderloin. This steak ranks as the #1 most tender! It has delicate beef flavor, which makes it perfect for recipes like Tenderloin Steaks with Blue Cheese Topping or a Tenderloin, Cranberry and Pear Salad.
Buying Ground Beef that’s 95% lean (or leaner) provides great flavor and convenience in a lean package. This choice is great for dishes like a Beef and Veggie Frittata, Lean Baked Meatballs Marinara as well as burger options like our Beef and Grain Burgers.
