Most often, ribeyes and filet mignon come to mind when we talk about steak. These steaks, while incredibly delicious, can also be very expensive for a weeknight dinner. There are a variety lesser-known steak cuts that, when prepared with a great recipe, can be beautifully tender and full of flavor. Sirloin steaks (like sirloin tip steaks and top sirloin steaks) are so good, whether you cook them up on the grill, pan-fry them over the stove in your favorite cast iron skillet, or throw them in your Instant Pot on busy days. The following recipes, carefully curated from talented food bloggers and recipe developers around the web, can elevate that steak in your freezer to a special dinner. No one has to know how easy the steak was to prepare!
