Butt Flap MeatAndy M."Bottom Sirloin Butt Flap Meat" is a cut of meat that's very popular around here for grilling. In New England we call it sirloin tips.
It looks like this raw and grilled. It's always heavily marinated, teriyaki marinade is a favorite. It has a loose grain texture similar to skirt steak. It's a continuation of the flank steak in the vicinity of the tri-tip.
It's most often sold as seen here but could also serve as a fajita or stir-fry meat. If braised it would fall apart to shreds like pulled pork.
I'm just posting this as I had some at a cookout yesterday and was curious about it and looked it up. I suspect it sells a lot better as sirloin tips than it would as butt flap meat. Imagine seeing it on the menu in a restaurant and ordering. "Yes, I'll have the butt flap meat medium rare, please"
It's a tasty cut but texture is an issue for me so I don't buy it for myself.
Have you had this cut outside New England and what do you call it?3 stars
