Sirloin steak is an easy to come by piece of meat. Anytime I head to my neighborhood market, I can always find a sirloin steak. The cut is usually 1 to 1 1/2 pounds which works great for my family of 3 and usually gives us some leftovers. It’s probably the perfect amount for a family of 4.

Bang for your buck
Steak can be extremely expensive but top sirloin is a good alternative. It’s no where near as expensive as premium cuts of meat like a rib eye or tenderloin. You can usually get a sirloin steak for under $12 depending on weight. 1 to 1 1/2 lbs is all you need to feed a family of 4.

You can totally put it in perspective if you think about a quarter pound hamburger. It is enough to feed 1 person. These Steak Tacos are less than $3.00 per person for the steak. That’s a win win in my book. Much cheaper than than purchasing 4 steaks and just as satisfying.

Easy Peasy Pleasy Tips

  • Sprinkle rub on the steak then use the back of a spoon to press the rub into the meat.
  • Cutting is key. Make sure you cut against the grain for the most tender bite of steak. If you cut with the grain the steak will be tough.
  • Kiddos not a fan of cilantro? No worries. Use the steak and cheese to make quesadillas.
