Sticky Sirloin Steak 2 x 225g

£16.30

Even the best meat still requires expert preparation, so we work with master butchers who ensure our sirloin steak is carefully aged in ideal conditions. All our cuts are skillfully prepared by hand in time-honoured, traditional fashion. We never take short cuts and our insistence on such methods is central to maintaining the quality you have come to expect from The Black Farmer.

When it comes to flavoursome beef, it is hard to get better than an expertly prepared, locally sourced and well-aged sirloin steak. The fuller, beefier flavour of this choice cut means it stands up well to deep sauces and absorbs marinades beautifully. It also makes for a truly magnificent addition to a barbecue. Knowing all this, and a thing or two about local beef, led to The Black Farmer choosing to bring you a BBQ-ready sirloin steak. We have marinated it in our special, sticky BBQ sauce, which adds a depth of flavour and a pleasing mild heat to our aged sirloin steak.

 

We source local meat from farms in Wiltshire, Somerset and the South West, and make sure that we get the very best and most sustainable breeds for the season. Our passion for high welfare extends to working with professionals at Wiltshire College in Lackham, promoting traditional farming methods and encouraging a sustainable and ethical approach to meat eating. By working with local produce and farmers, we promote and encourage a sustainable and ethical approach to meat eating, which reduces animal stress and lowers food miles as much as possible.

 

Our supreme sirloins are vacuum packed to keep the meat fresh for longer. This also means the meat absorbs the spices and retains its moisture. The BBQ sirloin steaks are also suitable for home freezing, just be sure to defrost thoroughly before cooking. The easiest way is simply to leave in the fridge overnight.

 

The shelf life of this sirloin steak is 12 days from the date of delivery. This pack contains approximately 2 pieces. 

 

Cooking instructions:

  1. Remove the steak from the fridge half an hour before it’s needed. This is so it can reach room temperature and cooks more evenly.
  2. Rub a little oil and seasoning onto both sides of the steak.
  3. For a beautifully browned crust and maximum flavour, heat a heavy-based frying or griddle pan until smoking hot. You’ll know it’s hot enough when you hear the steak sizzle as it goes into the pan.
  4. Sear the steak evenly on each side for our recommended times (see below), turning every minute for the best caramelised crust.
  5. Leave to rest on a board or warm plate for about 5 minutes. Don’t be tempted to skip this bit! Resting adds to the juiciness because it allows time for the juices to redistribute throughout the steak and helps avoid them running onto your plate.
  6. Serve the steak whole or carved into slices, and season with sea salt and black pepper.
