Sirloin suggestion

  • 6

Had a freaking delish Sirloin last night for dinner - my cousins bought it at Pusateri's - I thought I'd see what sort of suggestions came off this board for alternative butchers (better or cheaper).

Tried searching, but no luck.

Advice or a link to a topic I didn't turn up would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Mike

  1. As always - Costco. I would let it age for (at least) a week before using it. I am sure there are better cuts out there, but for the price it cannot be beaten - provided you have either a very healthy appetite of a bunch of friends.

    1. Grace Meat Market, College & Grace - excellent meat at ridiculously low prices - and the nicest staff imaginable. 416 534 7776

        Hunh, I've never heard of Grace Meat Market - but I can make it a stop on my bike ride home. In my experience, Costco meat has always been superb value (and excellent- but a little out of the way).

        For day to day use, I get my beef at Fiesta, I am happy to have somewhere new to try.

        Thanks,

          Went to Grace MM for a sirloin on Friday - but they only had 1 lbers, and suggested I buy 2 in order to get a thicker piece of meat!? .. odd. Were not able (or willing) to cut a piece for me. $5.99/lb (would cut it for me if I called ahead)

          Ended up at Gasparo's - all of their sirloins looked to be around 2.5 lbs - and the perfect thickness - got one, it was fantastic. $6.99/lb - oddly enough he lowered the price to $5.99 I really don't know why.

          Noticed today that Fiesta Farms carries top sirloin - and I suspect if I call ahead, the butcher would cut a thicker piece for me. $4.99/lb.

          Anyone have the skinny on a quality comparison - Grace/Gasparo's/Fiesta?

          Thanks,

        2. There are good sirloin steak buys at Cumbrae's They are on the back counter and under $10/lb., yet aged and from their own farms (not theirs, but raised for them).

            I going to commit heresy and recommend Sobey's. The South Ajax store, ever since it was an IGA, has always had a good meat cutting crew and it hasn't changed. With their specials happening all the time the meat is excellent quality, generous portions and great pricing.
