"Th-That's it! It's so good that I dream about it... Dodongo Cavern's finest quality rock sirloin! This is my absolute favorite! Blessed be this meal!"
Hungry Goron

Rock Sirloin (特上ロース岩 Tokujou Rōsu Iwa?, Extra-Special Roast Rock), also known as Sirloin Rocks, are a recurring item in the Legend of Zelda series. It is a type of rock consumed by Gorons native to both Hyrule and Termina.

Appearances

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Prior to Link slaying King Dodongo, a particular Goron tells him that he wants to eat Sirloin Rocks from Dodongo's Cavern.

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

Rock Sirloin is a delicacy among the Gorons. Due to a curse placed on Snowhead, a perpetual and intense winter has buried the Gorons' sources of Rock Sirloin beneath the ice, cutting off their food supply. However, one Goron has hidden a piece of Rock Sirloin within one of the Goron Vases attached to the chandelier in the Goron Shrine. After causing the chandelier to spin by lighting all the torches in the shrine, Link can roll off a ramp in his Goron form from the highest level of the shrine and into the correct jar in order to retrieve the Rock Sirloin. It can then be carried to the cold and Hungry Goron who is stuck on a frozen outcropping in the Mountain Village. The food restores the Goron's strength, and he is able to roll down. As a reward, he gives Link Don Gero's Mask.

Interestingly, the Goron refers to the Rock Sirloin as being from Dodongo's Cavern. It is not known whether or not this is the same as the dungeon from Ocarina of Time or some manner of Terminan equivalent.

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

Rock Sirloin is briefly mentioned by a Goron bathing in Death Mountain's Hot Spring. He states that there is nothing better than lounging in the hot spring and eating Rock Sirloin.

Rock Sirloin appears in The Land of Myth, where the brainwashed Darunia uses it to heal each time he is defeated, forcing Impa & Sheik to take control of the West Boulder Keep to destroy his stash with a Boulder, preventing him from healing himself. Interestingly, Rock Sirloin can be seen on one of the table in the Chief's Room (Darunia's room) even after the stash is supposed to be destroyed (this is because it is part of the Stage design).

Etymology

The term Sirloin refers to a cut of beef from either the lower (in the US) or middle (in the UK) part of the back of a cow. Rock refers to the fact it is actually a form of rock from Dodongo's Cavern. The name itself is also a reference to Rock Sirloin's meat-like shape and the fact that Gorons eat it as food (as Sirloin is a type of meat).
