The Tastiest Whole30 Beef Cookbook
Someone tell that lovable old lady from the commercial, we found the beef.

This steak is cut from a part of the cattle called the“top sirloin,” or the“top butt” if you are talking to beef industry professionals. There is also a muscle called the“bottom sirloin,” but we like the taste and texture of thetop sirloin. The beef in the top is closer to a strip steak in tenderness and flavor. The bottom sirloin is similar to a roast cut of meat. It is a bit tougher and requires a slow cook to break down all the muscle fibers to get to the most tender bite.OurTop Sirloin steaks are great for throwing on the grill or cooking up in a skillet for dinner.
The Pre top sirloin has 24g of protein, 134mg of CLAs, and 78mg of omegas 3s. It has 62% less fat and 37% fewer calories than a USDA choice sirloin steak.
Overall, our sirloin is a very lean cut. We like to keep them lean, with very little fat. The fat on a top sirloin subprimal is very tough and will often be seen in the form of silver skin. This is a tough, membrane-y piece of fat that shrinks up and causes a very firm bite. We, obviously, want our steaks to be as tender and melt-in-your-mouth as possible so we chooseto have our butchershand-trim off anyexcesstough fat they come across.
While the butchers are trimming, they are paying attention to the tendon that runs down the center of the top sirloin subprimal. The butcher will cut the muscle so that this tendon is not running down the middle of your steak. After the butcher is done trimming, they will put the larger cut pieces through our steak cutter. This machine uses a laser to read the thickness and size of the sub-primal pieces and then cuts it into evenly sized steaks.
All of our top sirloins are 8 ounces.After the steaks are cut, they pass through a machine that checks the weight of each individual steak. If the steak if over 8 ounces, it is put to the side and we trim it down to fit in our vacuum-sealed package.This makes for a consistent size that fits into our vacuum-sealed package. This size allows for consistency in average cooking times. Every time you buy a Pre® top sirloin it will cook for about the same amount of time, every time because it is always 8 ounces.
Even though the sirloin is so lean, it is still extremely flavorful. It makes a great base for rubs or marinades. It is also the steak we will point you to if you are making steak sandwiches or salads and want really thin slices of tender steak.

"Real talk...since my cancer was environmental and not hereditary I am super conscious of what goes into my body, especially protein. Post chemo left my body super low in iron so steak remains in my diet. I found Pre a few months ago and it’s the only meat I buy. Grass-fed, no added hormones and most importantly affordable. Eat better for your body people!"jaqueline
"Your steaks, especially the sirloin, ribeye, and filet mignon are absolutely delicious. Wasn’t sure how these cuts would taste grilled but they taste just as good if not better than cuts I’ve had a top notch steakhouses."Mario
"When our son was diagnosed with a rare medical disorder, it meant that we would have to change our diet as a family. Because his metabolism doesn’t function like a typical person’s, we have to be very careful about what we feed him. One of the changes we made was to use more grass-fed and finished beef in our cooking. We decided to give Pre a try, and we are so happy with the quality and taste of the meat. Buying from Pre gives us peace of mind and we feel confident knowing that we are using a product in the top of its class."Lindsay
"This beef is AMAZING! I'm from Wisconsin so a huge steak lover. This is some of the best beef, I've experienced and I've had beef around the world. It's a must try, and you'll understand what I mean."Tracy
