    Cooked top sirloin from Trader Joe’s grass fed angus beef steak was so tough had good flavor or I would of thrown it away. Found out later depends how it was cut. It’s safer to marinate it for a couple of hours. London Broil is also a cut of top sirloin. You have to cut it 1/4 inch across the grain to eat it.

    It was super good! Just made it. The outside got a little dark on a iron skillet and I thought it would taste burned but it didnt. With a little crisp to the skin and a soft pink inside. So Yummy! I used fresh parsley and Monteray steak seasoning. Kids ate it up too! Will make again!!!
