If you’re looking for a tender beef cut, you’re in the right place. The coulotte roast is a large, boneless cut from the top of the sirloin cap.

You’ll see there’s a small layer of fat attached to the coulotte, which keeps the roast moist and flavorful.

With mouthwatering taste and tenderness, this cut is a fan favorite. Plus, it’s extremely versatile. Roast it whole with a smoky rub, or slice it against the grain into smaller steaks.. Either way, it’s sure to make the whole family want a lot of coulotte.
