Be sure not to confuse a sizzle steak with a minute steak. Although both cuts are thin, a sizzle steak has more meat as it is usually cut from the round, offering all the meaty goodness of sirloin without the fat.

Sizzle steak is quick to cook and ideal for a quick meal or snack, providing a range of textures in each bite, with a crunchy exterior and slightly rare interior. It adds flavor to subs, sandwiches, and salads without breaking the bank. This simple cut provides a good mix of value and flavor for those on a lower grocery budget. It is reasonably priced, of decent quality and suitable for fast frying or grilling.

What is Sizzle Steak Good For?

A sizzle steak will never fully replace a top-quality piece of sirloin for a true carnivore, but it’s great to have on hand. Thinly sliced with a crispy crust and medium to rare center, it is a true delight for the taste buds. Use it to put the finishing touches to a salad or create the perfect meaty sandwich. While technically not cured meat, this sliced steak will still fit on a charcuterie board.
