Flavorful and Tender

The sirloin tip is not actually part of the sirloin, rather it is the tip of the meat that is located in the round of the steer. What this means is that the meat is quite a bit tougher than the meat in the short loin, but brings a higher level of flavor.

Tasting Notes from the Curator

A5 Japanese Wagyu Sirloin Tip is a wonderful cut of meat. It is great for braising, stewing, and roasting. Thanks to its A5 status, consumers will not only experience a far tender cut of meat compared to that of non-wagyu, non-ranked meats, but will also experience a flavor unlike that of any other piece of round. As it is located in a muscle that was used regularly by the cow, it is far tougher than other parts, but what it lacks in initial tenderness, it delivers in flavor. There is a higher fat content in this meat as it is A5 wagyu, but is still quite lean.


This sirloin tip works great as a roast. It can also work well stewed. A simple, yet hearty stew of A5 Japanese Wagyu Sirloin Tip with carrots and potatoes is the stuff of legends. Pair this with some crusty fresh bread or enjoy over rice. This beef has a higher than average fat content as well as being some of the most flavorful beef in the world. Enjoy this dish with Chateau Roc de Candale Saint-Emilion Grand Cru. The spicy, fruity, boldness of the wine will complement the richness of the stew.

Collagen vs Gelatin

The thing about tougher cuts of meat is that they are not actually of poorer quality than cuts that are tender. These parts of the animal have been used more and are generally leaner than parts that are not used as frequently. They also contain high amounts of collagen, a long stiff protein that forms in areas that are used more often. When eating meat that has a high collagen content, it will be tough, chewy, and almost impossible to eat at times. What needs to be done is to convert that collagen into gelatin, which can be done when the meat is cooked slowly and for long periods of time. The result is a rich, flavorful experience as the flavor of meat is transported around the dish via the gelatin and the meat itself is given a smooth, silky texture.
