    Why is a  select roast of beef called a "sirloin"?


    Legend has it that in 1617, during dinner and after a few goblets of wine, King James I of England suddenly stood and drew his sword and, laying it across the entree, declared: "Gentlemen, as fond as I am of all of you, yet I have a still greater favorite-the loin of a good beef.  Thereafter, good beef roast, I knight thee Sir Loin and proclaim that a double loin be known as a baron."
