Top of Iowa sirloin steak celebrates 50th anniversary


One of Iowans' top steak choices on the grill celebrated a milestone anniversary. This past summer of 2012 marked the 50th anniversary of the Top of Iowa Sirloin. This lean steak has been the signature cut representing the high quality beef raised by Iowa farmers for five decades.

The Top of Iowa Sirloin was born in 1962. The Iowa beef industry held a "name the greatest steak" contest. The Top of Iowa Sirloin was chosen out of more than 4,000 entries. The name 'Top" fit the taste, appeal, tenderness and prestige of the Top Sirloin. Iowa was a natural complement as it had a well-earned reputation of raising high-quality beef. The Top of Iowa Sirloin was the perfect reflection of a first-class steak coupled with the high-quality premium beef that was raised in Iowa.

The Top of Iowa Sirloin quickly gained popularity not only in Iowa, but acquired a regional reputation as an exceptional taste treat to diners across the nation. After 50 years, the Top of Iowa Sirloin Steak is still topping Iowa restaurant menus and can be readily found in grocery meat cases.

This versatile steak can be grilled whole and served as slices or cut into various sized individual steaks by dividing it into halves, thirds or fourths. It has many meal uses as it works well cubed for kabobs, sliced for fajitas and stir fry as well as sandwiches and salads.
