    I like sirloin but I am also in the camp of if you don’t like it don’t eat it!

    When I sit down to eat at a wedding, I’m generally just grateful to be fed, and not particular about which cut of meat I’m getting! (Just like I would never go to a dinner party and complain about whatever the host chose to serve!) Do you have the opportunity for a taste-test the sirloin? My only concern would be if the caterer can execute it well. Sirloin is generally a little tougher cut of meat, and caterers at weddings I’ve been to tend to over cook the meat… if you trust that the caterer will make it as tender and delicious as they can, then my vote is for sirloin!

    @EffieTrinket:  its completely fine. i’m not a huge beef eater so i might choose a chicken plate, but sirloin v. another kind of steak doesnt make any difference to me whatsoever. i wouldnt even notice. steak is steak to me.

    Lol, I LOVE BEEF

    That said, Sirloin is a less tender cut vs Filet Mignon / Tenderloin… and a lot more is therefore dependent on the cow, how good the butcher was, etc.

    On the otherhand, you are an Oklahoma Girl… Beef Country… so chances are your Venue is going to have access to decent meat (probably better than I see in Eastern Canada unless I am willing to pay for that Filet Mignon / Tenderloin option)

    Anyhow, as we all know BUDGET is a very important consideration.  Beef (Steak or Roast Beef) at a Wedding is usually a sign of a fancy event… so for sure Sirloin will make the grade in that regard.

    Hope this helps,

    I VOTED = I LOVE SIRLOIN… BUT I PREFER FILET MIGNON

    (Sorry, just being honest… if I could have voted more than 1x I would have voted for the first one as well… I LOVE SIRLOIN… FANCY ENOUGH FOR A WEDDING)

    I should add that I 100% agree with @StuffWithScout:  (Reply # 5)… I am a Good & Grateful Guest… I’m happy to be there, and you’ll never hear me complain.  When I go to a Wedding I am pleased if you feed me period.

    Put the beef in my face please. Take that however you will — I’m a huge steak fan. I’ll eat pretty much any cut of beef.

    @EffieTrinket:  I like sirloin but I voted I’d prefer filet mignon. Honestly, red meat can be tough to digest for me so I try to stay away. However, if I was afforded the option I’d choose the more tender option.

    Otherwise, I’ll take chicken. 🙂
