How to Cook Ultra Thin Sirloin

Most steaks are about 1-inch thick, but they can be sliced thinner. Ultra-thin steaks less than 1/2-inch thick are called minute steaks for their short cooking time. The minute steak can come from any cut of beef, such as sirloin. Ultra-thin sirloin steaks can be cooked under the broiler, in a pan or on the grill, depending on your preference, but keep a close eye on the meat to avoid overcooking it.
