Sirloin tip side steaks are from one of three muscles that make up the sirloin tip. The muscles are in the animal's thighs and get heavy use, so the steak meat is rather tough. These steaks should be marinated, grilled, and sliced thin.
This tough cut of steak should be marinated before cooking to help increase tenderness and flavor. Cooking should be over high heat, taking care not to overcook the meat (which would make it even tougher). Cook to an internal temperature of 135 degrees Fahrenheit for medium-rare.
Another option would be to braise the steak over low temperatures. The moisture and long cooking time will tenderize the meat. For braising, cook to an internal temperature of 203 degrees.
To cook sirloin tip side steak on a Traeger, marinate the meat before cooking for at least an hour. With your Traeger preheated to high, grill the steak for 6 to 10 minutes per side until the internal temperature reaches 135 degrees Fahrenheit for medium-rare.

Sirloin tip side steak comes from the vastus lateralis muscle, a large muscle in the thigh area. This muscle gets plenty of use as the animal moves around, making the meat relatively lean.
When food scientists ranked 40 beef muscles, the vastus lateralis was the 9th toughest muscle.
