A steak that I like to buy is Top Sirloin....It is very flavorful, and cooked properly very tender....The secret to this cut is to buy it thick -- 1 1/2 in. at least, and not over cook it. I like to cook Top Sirloin medium rare, and slice it thin. At this thickness I find that one steak will serve two or three even four...depending on the portion size. In my area today, Kroger has Top Sirloin for $2.99 lb!!! --- That's for USDA Choice Beef too!! That's a great value!!
When I measure the temperature of a piece of meat I like to insert the thermometer into the edge, and into the thickest part. In other words don't insert the thermometer straight down. Go into the thickest part from the side. This will ensure that your thermometer tip is truly in the center of the thickest part...
Have I thoroughly confused you???
