Moving up the ladder of meat cuts, we find Round Steak. Compared to Chuck steak, round steaks tend to have a better taste and meat quality. Sourced from the rump, round cuts tend to be tougher due to lack of fat, but also leaner. Use this cut in recipes such as:
- Rump steak with salsa verde & tomato salad
- Pasta with pepper steak
- Steak & mushroom ragout & polenta
These are the cuts you’ll usually get served at your favourite RSL Club or pub. The sirloin is highly versatile and works well grilled with chips and salad, or thinly sliced in a stir fry. If you like your sirloin juicy and tender, be sure to only flip once when cooking! Try out these sirloin recipes:
