    Default What do packing houses do with bottom sirloin?

    There is only one store in my area that sells bottom sirloin(that I
    have seen). It's not a bad cut of meat. Sometimes it needs trimming
    of a tad of gristle here and there. Can be dry cooked; has a bit of a
    chew.
    Since this is the only shop that sells the stuff, my question is:
    What do packing houses do with the rest of the bottom sirloin that
    isn't sold?(as bottom sirloin).
    Grind it up? Stew beef?

    You don't say where you are, but maybe they ship it to the northeast. It's
    common in the supermarkets here, and often on sale. I've been using it for
    ke-babs for years.

    Tri-tip, sirloin steaks, butt roast, flap/hanger steak, ball or tip
    roast.

    Meat cuts are very regional. What's sold in one country/state/region
    is not commonly sold in other regions.

    I live in Kitchener, Ont. Canada. 60 miles southwest of Toronto.

    I meant the Northeast US. Bottom sirloin is often just called sirloin. If
    your steak isn't specifically called top sirloin or one of the fancier cuts
    like strip sirloin (which is cut from the short loin), you can be confident
    that it's bottom sirloin. Sirloin tip (petite sirloin) is actually cut from
    the round. If Canada uses the British cut conventions the above becomes all
    hooey.

    Bottom sirloin, if you can get a piece sliced thick enough, makes a terrific
    London broil.
