What Can I Do with Cubed Sirloin?

al b. darned Oct 25, 2012 10:02 PM

I am planning on making beef stroganoff weekend so I called the butcher for meat recommendations. He recommended using sirloin and I told him I needed about a pound and a half. I was planning on buying one piece of meat cutting it into strips just before cooking. When I went to pick it up I discovered he cut it into cubes like stew beef. Most of the recipes call for strips rather than chunks of meat, and after thinking about it I decided the dish would taste better that way as well, so I will go out tomorrow and by a new piece of sirloin.

So now I have approximately a pound and a half of sirloin cubes and I'm not sure what to do with them. Turning them into still seems like kind of a waste, so I'm turning to you guys for some ideas. So, what can I do with this meat?

      Cubed sirloin is what my family recipe for Cornish pasties calls for. Although a pound and a half's worth would be a whole lot of pasties! (Not that they wouldn't all go, it would just be some work.)

            I'm not familiar with this. Can you expand on it, please?

              Pretty much the cubes in a Vietnamese marinade. Sear it on a hot pan cook to desired doneness served over veggies.

              Here's a link to a recipe:

            How about shish kebobs, beef burgundy, or beef stir-fry.

              Sirloin is great for kebabs. Marinate in any vinaigrette for a few hours first, spear with onion and peppers, serve in pita with Tahini sauce.
