How much protein in sirloin steak can come down to a few different things, how many grams the steak is in weight, what cut it is, so this means the quality of the sirloin steak and lastly the way you cook or how well cooked your steak is.
Beef in general terms has a good high amount of protein in it as I have written about before and also has many benefits if added into your daily diet in some meals throughout the week.
Not only can you get protein from eating sirloin steak you get good fats and many vitamins and minerals too which one of the important ones is iron.
Now back to the question at hand, how much protein in Sirloin Steak?
The average per 100 grams of sirloin steak is just over 20 grams of protein when pan fried.
This is an average so there will be a variance in there, some say 22 grams of protein and some say 21 grams per 100 grams.
How many grams in weight or how big the steak is can affect the protein level in it, if it is a 200 gram sirloin steak it will be around the 40 gram mark of protein content and up it goes the more you have on your plate.
So if you want to know the exact amount of protein in your steak for a start, weigh it, weigh it either pre cooking or after you have cooked it, depending on how you are monitoring your intake and when you are weighing your food.
This of course probably has a bit of variance in it too depending on the way you cook your steak like I have said above, as this can change the protein levels in it as well.
The cut of sirloin comes into play as well in regards to protein level, the high cut has a higher level of protein compared to the low sirloin cut you can buy in the supermarket or butcher.
And last but not least the way you cook your lump of sirloin steak makes a bit of difference to the final protein count too.
If you charcoal it to a crisp on your barbeque you probably aren’t going to get the same bang for your buck protein wise as you would if you had it pan fried medium rare or broiled it.
Not that many people you run into these days broil their steak.
So there you have a run down on how much protein is in sirloin steak and also how the protein content in steak can change depending on weight, cut and cooking.
I hope you learnt a bit as I have done writing about it, make sure to keep an eye out for my next protein update.
