How to cut your own top sirloin steaks - cheap

I have been promising for awhile now to post a how-to video on cutting cheap Top Sirloin steaks. I did these for $2.35 a pound, which is Costco's standard price. If you think about it, that is nearly as cheap as hamburger.

Anyway, with a little help from Daisy Girl, I finally got a video done. In this nine-minute tutotial, I'll take you through the whole process of cutting the steaks. Unfortunately, I ran out of batteries in the cam corder before I could do another video on tenderizing and grilling the steaks, but I was able to write a blog post on how to tenderize and grill these steaks on my brother Bobby's Blog "The Smoker Pit." You can read that article: here.

BTW, I have posted this video permanently at the bottom of this blog for quick reference. In fact, I am toying with the idea of doing a series of how-to videos to post down there in the future. Let me know what you think...


  1. I'm laughing at the commentary from behind the camera. I think these how-to's are great.

  2. Yeah, that is my little funny girl!!

  3. Your blog is perfect for combines gardening and great food!

    I'm in! :)

  4. Thanks Kyna...we are trying to incorporate more food and recipes as we go....sometimes difficult to keep up on both gardening and food. :) We look forward to sharing ideas with you!

  5. This was "off the hook!". Bought a sirloin awhile back without this video-cut it so wrong. With this video-a piece of cake. You made this so simple. I had my iPhone right next to me and went step by step. Your daughters comments were most welcome. THANKS!!
