INGREDIENT OF THE MONTH: BEEF SIRLOIN

Make the most of this great-tasting ingredient in store now

NEED TO KNOW

Steak and chips is a great dish, but it’s well worth extending your repertoire. Start by learning how to roast the perfect beef sirloin; cooked to pinkish medium-rare, it is without a doubt the star of any dinner party. Sirloin steaks, meanwhile, are both simple to cook and packed with flavour – see what we mean with delicious surf-and-turf burgers.

HOW TO…

Slice sirloin steaks before seasoning with lemon zest, paprika and garlic to make a delicious stroganoff with pappardelle or cook diced beef with rosemary and thyme before transferring to individual dishes and topping with creamy dauphinoise potatoes in a superb steak and mushroom pie.

TOP TIP

If you try a roast beef sirloin recipe and end up with leftovers, treat yourself to a special lunch: pile slices of rare meat into a ciabatta roll and top with a little horseradish yogurt.
