Default Uses for petite sirloin?

Having temporarily missed the prime rib roast window due to medical issues, I see petite sirloin at a good price this week - $2.77. As I recall, this lean cut has decent flavor but lacks marbling and is usually pretty tough. I have used it happily in chili and stews when sliced thin, but am wondering if it would respond at all to low and slow --as in the crockpot. Maybe a slow, all-day simmer of stroganoff sauce?
What do you use this cut for and how do you prepare it? Always nice to have a lean but affordable beef cut in the stable, so to speak.

Sounds perfect for a pressure cooker. The pressure cooker should produce a tender meat. Sous vide might also be a good alternative. If you're not familiar with sous vide I would suggest googling or viewing some YouTube videos. It's the only way I do chicken now. Sous vide takes a lot of time, but so does a crockpot.

I look at petite sirloin as a multi purpose meat, kind of like hamburger. Cut it thin for fijitas, steak sandwiches, salads, stroganoff, stir fry. Pound them out for chicken fried steak. You can do them as steaks but there are better choices. I've grilled them before but I would pull them at med rare. Definitely do not let them go past medium. For under $3 a pound I might have to go buy some just to have on hand.

Thanks guys -- and Williams, too.
Sweng, we had a sous vide thread going in the LIG forum. Interesting approach. I am just not sure I want to spend on yet another kitchen gadget.

Nothing better then some good old hearty mushroom gravy stroganoff.........

Thinly slice those steaks, floor them up, brown them up, and cook low and slow in with your favorite stroganoff gravy mix...........

Serve over some really garlicy mashed yukon gold potatoes (heavily peppered).........

YUM!

The reason I purchased the sous vide machine was for chicken. I could never seem to get it thoroughly cooked using standard methods but with sous vide it is cooked through and then I can pan fry or deep fry in a couple minutes. I soon found out it is terrific for steak. It's also great for duck breast.

Bill the petite sirloin from that meat market on Silverton Rd near Hollywood Drive makes killer jerky. Vac-pack it and it will be handy for snacks while you are paddling your canoe to Iowa after The Big One hits.

Last night I had some petite sirloin. I just thin slice it, brown it and pour some of Johnny's Au Jus and let it simmer till done. Keeps it moist and keeps it tender. Then I just eat the nuggets dipped in my favorite dipping sauce. Usually a mixture of horse radish and ketchup.

Excellent suggestions!

Great tasting cut of meat, but like bottom round and some other cuts of beef it needs to be slow cooked with a sauce or gravy to tenderize it.

Just one possibility from Cooking with Ruthie:

Best Dinner EVER

1 can cream of mushroom soup (I like lowfat)
1 C water
1 package of onion soup mix
4-5 petite sirloins

Spray pan and brown sirloin on stove, over med heat. Combine soup, water, onion soup mix in Crock-pot, add browned beef. Cook on low 6 hrs, high 3 hrs. Before serving shred sirloin with 2 forks. Serve over mashed potatoes or noodles.

Bill that recipe is a classic Finnish recipe, also good with pork, chicken, reindeer, venison, pretty much any meat.

You can do the same recipe but cook it at 350 for 20-40 minutes depending on the meat. Moist tender meat but requires a knife to cut it.

No foolin? I lived in Ames in 1956. 1302 West Harding. We were in the right side of the duplex. I learned to ice skate on the creek that runs past Iowa State.

Coot, yes indeed. She is working on her Ph.D. in genetics. Odd thing is her grandfather was sent to Iowa State by the army for training in 1944, although it was cut short and dad was shipped with the rest of the 97th Infantry to France, where they followed the Third Army into Germany and Czechoslovakia.

Simmer it for hours in au jus. Cut it into tiny chunks for chili. Cheaper than lean hamburger.

I picked up a package of Petite Sirloin Steaks at Winco yesterday. Made it exactly per the below recipe. Served over cooked brown rice = YUM!
Very much like a beef stroganoff. Over noodles will also be very good.
I will be making this again. It will also be a great camping dish that can be made up ahead of time, refrigerated and reheated.
Highly recommend it.
Thank you for providing this Bill!

I just saw a recipe for crock pot beef and broccoli today. I think petite sirloin would work perfect in.
