Don't confuse sirloin steak cut from the top or lower sirloin with sirloin strip steak. The latter is a tasty and tender cut. It's the bigger half of a porterhouse.
Here in Canada we call the big part from a porterhouse & T-bone a strip loin. No sirloin in the name.
I guess I'll let them defrost part way and cut them on a diagonal. I'll be pounding them, 'cause I don't have a machine to do it.
