    My Fiance (who was a butcher for 10 years) says the striploin is a better cut of steak. It’s more tender.

    The butt steak is cheaper-but not that much. It is still a good steak, and “if you know how to cook it no one will know”.

    I have no thoughts or opinions on which is better, but as an incredibly immature person… I would probably giggle if someone told me butt sirloin was for dinner… maybe if that is what you go with they can just call it strip steak and leave it at that? 🙂

    @sara_tiara:  Agreed with your Fiance on everything! Having worked professionaly as a chef, and if I wasn’t cooking the meal, i’d fight for the NY Strip. Sirloins can be amazing (especially if its a super high quality, grass-fed piece of meat) however, they tend to get overly tough (more than most) if overcooked.

    Whichever you choose, take the word butt out of it!  Lol.

    I work for a steakhouse and I would definitely recommend going with the strip. It is a higher quality steak and more flavorfull.

    Also: A NY strip will look better on a plate than a top sirloin…

     

    These cuts are from next to each other, so there are similarities.

    @CorgiTales:  Well call me immature because I DID giggle! 

    OP, please don’t have ‘butt’ on your menu.

    I think the big issue is I wouldn’t pay NY strip prices for Sirloin.  If she quoted you a price for strip and is trying to charge you the same for sirloin, I would go in and ask for the price to be adjusted.  Taste wise I enjoy eating both as long as they are cooked properly.

    A NY strip is a porterhouse without the bone and filet … look for shape. Also, sirloin steaks tend to be a bit thicker than a proper NY strip (there’s more meat on a cow that is “sirloin”, so they tend to be more generous in cuts)

    @chiron:  Striploin=New York Strip…they are a different section of the loin, but will taste the same.

    A Top Butt will be rounder, and larger in size. A NY striploin will be longer and thinner. There should also be more marbelling in the New York Striploin.

    The Top Butt refers to what part of the cow it comes from (Top Butt=hip).
