The Coulotte Steak

What is a Coulotte steak?

Coulotte steak is a boneless, lean cut derived from the sirloin tip, which is located at the top of the short loin, just below the tenderloin. Narrow and long in shape (2 in. wide, 4 in. long, and ½ in. thick), the coulotte is quite tender and boasts a bold amount of flavor, but is also pretty lean. The average 4 oz serving of coulotte steak has about 210 calories, 24 grams of protein, and only 6 grams of fat. Like most beef, it should be cooked to an internal temperature of 145°F. It's best prepared with a pan-seared cooking method and a sea salt finish.
