How to Sous Vide Beef Sirloin Steak

The sirloin is one of my favorite "everyday" steaks. It's mid-priced and decently tender with a milder but still beefy flavor and light marbling. The sirloin is most often served at mid-tier steakhouses and it holds up to sauces very well. It has a firm bite to it and seems to be a bit more dense than other cuts. Since it is also on the less expensive side, it is easy to eat more often.

Sirloin comes from the sirloin primal near the rear of the cow. There are many cuts from that primal, including regular "sirloin steak", tri tip, and top sirloin which is more tender and sometimes referred to as a strip steak.

The sirloin isn't as tender as many of the other steaks so I'll often sous vide it for 8 to 10 hours, just to tenderize it a little bit. However, it is still very good when just heated through, usually 2 to 4 hours for an average one.
