The Butchering of "Sir Loin"

We bought a huge piece of sirloin beef – the only meat to be knighted (that is other than a person!!). There are a few legends surrounding why it was dubbed “Sir Loin” but I know better than to print which I think is the true version. Anyway, the hubby decided to take on the role of a surgeon when presented with the task of cutting the said piece of meat into steaks and joints. Apron on, scrubs up, knife to the ready. Help!!

Hi Margaret,

Thanks for your comment on my post about rebellious beef brisket. I broke another rule and got from the supermarket instead of our brilliant local butcher who was closed.

I don't kknow about sirloin though. Nigel Slater (we are not worthy) reckons and I think I agree that rump has a better taste and texture. But you know, I'm not goingt to argue with any steak put in front of me. They're all great.
