Sorry, but all cuts of meat do not revolve around USA butchers. Go to an English, French, German, European, Thai, Malaysian, Indian Nigerian, etc,etc, etc butcher then you will not find the cut that you describe. Much like you will not find a sloppy joe in those countries as well. Nuff Said.

I agree with Andy. We buy striploin roasts and steaks all the time. It has always been a family favourite either way.

The steers in England, France, Germany, European,... have the same anatomy as those in the USA and in Asia where the OP resides. So that cut exists. Butchers may not sell that cut or advertise it with the same name but it's there.

I also wouldn't be surprised to find a sloppy joe in another country under a different name.

I am from Canada where a lot of our cuts are similar to Britain.

Just because something is called something else in a different country doesn't make it wrong. It is cultural.

As Andy said strip loin is available all over Europe as it comes from the same area of the cow as it does over here. In Germany it's called Rump Steak, in Italy it's Bistecche di Scamone and in France it's Faux Fillet but it's all the exact same cut.

Wow! I sparked an international debate! The meat was quite tasty, well worth the extra $$ here. Beef in China, at the lower to mid end is not very tasty and is usually marinated and pounded and laced with unknown amounts of MSG to make it tender and flavorful.

Who else should it revolve around, since according to you, that cut only seems to exist in US butcher shops? BTW, they exist in Canada too, and seemingly in China, where the OP lives.
