How I came learn about the amazing cut of beef called Sirloin Flap.

One day a friend told me about a new local butcher shop that sources their meats within 300 miles of Austin, Texas. Being a Chef, those kinds of words I live to hear, local! This was the day I came to know my friend, Sirloin Flap. You might be wondering why you have possibly never heard of sirloin flap beef.

Answer: the amount on one huge cow is only around 6 pounds per half a cow…there is still hope in getting this prized cut of meat.

I suggest you try one of your local specialty grocery stores, like a Whole Foods. Some great news about sirloin flap is this cut of meat sells for anywhere from $9.99 /pound on up, the highest price I’ve seen is $19.99 /pound…In my book, these prices are great for such a special item.
