Sirloin Steak with Herb Butter

Ardelia Farm Beef From the Chef Recipes

Sirloin Steak with Herb Butter

The cow's sirloin is in the sub primal posterior, behind the short loin, from which the porterhouse and T-bone are cut. This top sirloin steak is exquisite. It has incredible flavor, is easy to cook, and quite versatile. It is pretty lean, so it's best served medium rare. Recipe.  Make the herb butter. Combine some room temperature butter with minced garlic and fresh herbs. I don't have a recipe for this, just follow your heart. I used thyme, rosemary, oregano, and parsley. Finely minced, along with several cloves of garlic, and folded into soft butter. It can be refrigerated until you...

Seared Rib Steak

The rib steak is from, you guessed it, the rib of the cow. You may know these as "ribeye steaks" but the ribeye is technically just the center part of this steak, and is boneless.  The rib steak has excellent marbling; it is very tender and full of flavor. It can be cooked quickly on the grill or on the stove.  Recipe.  Bring steak to room temperature. Pat dry. Season well with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a cast iron skillet over high heat. Add steak and sizzle for about 3 minutes per side, until a nice golden crust forms. Reduce...

Grilled T-Bone Steak

Like the porterhouse, the T-bone steak is cut from the short loin. If you're looking at a cow diagram, it'll be right in the middle. It contains mostly strip steak with a smaller amount of tenderloin on the other side. This is a tender cut with great flavor, and it doesn't require much in the way of seasonings or preparation. If you're someone who likes your steak medium to medium-well, a T-bone is a good choice because it stays tender and tasty even at higher temps. Recipe. This is a quick & easy fool-proof way to grill a steak to perfection. Let the...

Broiled Porterhouse Steak

Broiled Porterhouse Steak

The porterhouse steak is cut from the short loin. If you're looking at a cow diagram, it'll be right in the middle. Porterhouse & T-bone are often used interchangeably, but they're not quite the same thing. They're both cut from the short loin, and they both contain the strip steak, which is shown here on the left, as well as the tenderloin on the right. But the porterhouse is cut from the rear end of the short loin and has a larger tenderloin. To be labeled a "Porterhouse" it must have a tenderloin at least 1.25" wide. Other than that, they...
