Baron of Beef : Phrases


A large double slice of meat not separated at the backbone.



Half a Baron is called a sirloin and it from this half that Baron gets its name. Sirloin is an anglicised version of the French sur (over) and longe (loin). By inference and humour, since a Sir or Knight is lower than a Baron then the double version was so called.
