Note: Beef Round (Sirloin) Tip Side Steaks are cut from the Beef Round Tip, cap off by following the natural seams to separate the tip side, tip center and tip bottom. The tip side is then cut across the grain into steaks. Steaks cut 3/4 inch thick average 7 ounces. Steaks cut 1 inch thick average 8 ounces.
