What Is
The Most Nutritious Cut Of Steak?
While there are cuts of steak, like ribeye or New York strip, that are high in saturated fat, eating steak in general has many benefits — like improved oral and mental health, lots of protein, iron, B-vitamins, zinc, and selenium. Luckily for steak lovers, though, the lean top sirloin steak is the most nutritious.
The top sirloin steak is a versatile cut, great for grilling, broiling, stir-frying, and kabob skewers. It also meets the USDA's "lean" requirements, which are — fewer than 10 grams of fat, 4.5 grams of saturated fat, and 95 milligrams of cholesterol per each 3.5-ounce serving of steak.
Top sirloin is low in calories, cholesterol, and overall fat content, making it healthier than a London broil, hanger steak, chuck eye, skirt steak, and so many others. When cooking top sirloin, its rich beefy flavor can be further enhanced with easy grilling marinades, dry rubs, and aging.
