Sirloin Steak on Wikipedia:

Beef Cuts Different cuts of beef Beef cut: Sirloin Sirloin steak, served with garlic butter and french fries

The sirloin steak is beef steak cut from the lower portion of the ribs, continuing off the tenderloin from which filet mignon is cut.

The sirloin is actually divided into several types of steak. The top sirloin is the most prized of these. The bottom sirloin is less tender, much larger, and is typically what is offered when one just buys sirloin steaks instead of steaks specifically marked top sirloin. The bottom sirloin in turn connects to the sirloin tip roast.

Etymology

The word comes from the Middle English surloine, which itself was derived from the Old French word surlonge, meaning sur la longe or above the loin[1]. In Modern French, the term evolved to become aloyau or faux-filet.[2]

An often quoted, but incorrect, folk etymology suggests that sirloin comes from the knighting by an English king (various kings are cited) of a piece of meat.[3]
