Strassburger's Fifth Generation
Meet the Sirloin Sisters
Suzanne and Andrea Strassburger-better known as the Sirloin Sisters-are the fifth generation of their family meat business. In an industry dominated by males, these two city living cowgirls deliver the best in beef and continue the 150-year old tradition of their family.
Since 2007, the Sirloin Sisters have been asked to star on
nine ten reality television shows. After having met with producers, Suzanne and Andrea decided that the real stars are the meat products made in America and the people who grow our food. Let's celebrate them!
Suzanne Strassburger is the fifth generation of the Strassburger family in the meat business.
She is President of Strassburger Steaks, LLC, (www.strassburgersteaks.com ) CEO Suzy Sirloin, Inc. (www.suzysirloin.com) all natural beef that’s currently available in retail stores. The Founder of The Sirloin Report, (www.thesirloinreport.com) , a daily, industry-leading online report about beef .

Suzanne has been featured in numerous newspapers, magazines, and news reports including appearances on Fox News, features in The New York Times, New York Post, New York Daily News, and The Wall Street Journal. Referred to multiple times as "The Queen of Meat" by Fox News, "Manhattan's Meat Maven" in The National Provisioner, and the "First Lady of Meat" in New York Daily News, Suzanne has truly found her place as New York City's country cowgirl.
As a way to further educate herself, Suzanne attained a Masters of Beef Advocacy (MBA) from the National Cattleman’s Beef Association in 2010. The MBA program is a self-directed online training program offered by the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association designed to equip beef producers and industry allies with the information they need to be every day advocates for the beef industry. Suzanne was in the first NCBA Top of the Class program for MBA grads wishing to make a more explosive impact on behalf of the beef community.
Suzanne is on the Editorial board at The National Provisioner Magazine and is a frequent contributor. The Daily Meal, a highly popular website devoted to topics surrounding food and drink, recently featured Suzanne Strassburger among the 60 Coolest People in Food for 2013 and 2014. Suzanne was just recently selected as a Future Icon in the meat and poultry business.
At a young age, it seemed unlikely for Andrea to go into the family meat business. She started her career working in the fashion industry-a world away from her family's business. Although meat may have not been her passion in her 20's while working in SOHO, Andrea did hold a strong passion for supporting her family and keeping up their five generation tradition.
At age 29, Andrea "Angus" Strassburger left the fashion world and entered the meat business. With her charm and street smarts, she found her place as the money collector. More than ten years later, Andrea continues to hold one of the most important positions in the company. However, her true motive is to continue to build the legacy her family started 150 years ago and promote their story.
A true New York City girl, Andrea focuses much of her energy on supporting the city. She voices her strong admiration for New York chefs and restaurant owners with whom she has maintained invaluable relationships for years.
In addition, Andrea created a campaign called Sisters Salute with her sister, Suzanne, to support the soldiers, sailors, marines, coast guard, and airmen's club in the New York City area. Her charity works to provide accommodations at subsidized rates and club-type facilities for members of the Armed Forces, Veterans and their families and those of our Allies in New York. Because of her efforts, she was named an honorary marine.
