Let me assure anyone in case they are wondering, a 14 pound Top Sirloin will not fit in a “roast” sized bag. It sort of looked like it might fit, so I tried. I split the roast sized bag open on the bottom and side seam trying to stuff that huge hunk of meat in it.
The solution was to cut off a 3 lb chunk (2 lb 14 oz actually). That left about 11 pounds of Top Sirloin, which fit very snugly in the roast sized bag. But it was a close call even at that. I’d suggest nothing larger than 9 or 10 pounds for the smaller roast sized bag. But it also depends on the shape of the meat to some degree. You might fit 11 pounds if the cut were a little longer and smaller in cross section than a Top Sirloin.
It’s a nice chunk of meat. I’m going to age it for 28 days.
