Top Sirloin Steak

Top sirloin steak is a popular, tender, and flavorful cut of beef that is perfect for grilling, pan-searing, or broiling. This recipe will guide you through the process of preparing and cooking a delicious top sirloin steak with a simple seasoning that enhances its natural flavors.

Ingredients:

  • 2 top sirloin steaks (8 to 10 oz. each, about 1-inch thick)
  • 1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 2 tbsp olive oil (for pan-searing) or cooking spray (for grilling)

Instructions:

        1. Preparation:

          • Remove the steaks from the refrigerator at least 30 minutes before cooking to allow them to come to room temperature. This will ensure even cooking.
          • In a small bowl, mix together the kosher salt, freshly ground black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika. This will be your seasoning mix.
        2. Seasoning the steaks:

          • Pat the steaks dry with paper towels to remove any excess moisture. This will help to create a better sear.
          • Rub both sides of each steak with the seasoning mix, pressing it gently into the meat to adhere.
        3. Cooking the steaks:
Option A: Pan-searing
  • Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large, heavy skillet (preferably cast iron) over medium-high heat until it shimmers.
  • Carefully place the seasoned steaks in the skillet, making sure not to overcrowd the pan.
  • Sear the steaks for 4-5 minutes per side for medium-rare, or until they reach your desired level of doneness. Use an instant-read thermometer to check the internal temperature: 130°F for medium-rare, 140°F for medium, and 150°F for medium-well.
  • Remove the steaks from the skillet and let them rest on a cutting board for at least 5 minutes before slicing.

Option B: Grilling

  • Preheat your grill to high heat, around 450°F to 500°F.
  • Lightly coat the grill grates with cooking spray to prevent sticking.
  • Place the seasoned steaks on the grill and cook for 4-5 minutes per side for medium-rare, or until they reach your desired level of doneness. Check the internal temperature with an instant-read thermometer: 130°F for medium-rare, 140°F for medium, and 150°F for medium-well.
  • Remove the steaks from the grill and let them rest on a cutting board for at least 5 minutes before slicing.

Serving suggestions:

  • After allowing the steaks to rest, slice them against the grain for maximum tenderness.
  • Serve the top sirloin steaks alongside your favorite side dishes. Some popular options include garlic mashed potatoes, roasted vegetables, steamed green beans, or a simple green salad.
  • For an added touch, you can also serve the steaks with a pat of garlic herb butter or a flavorful sauce, such as chimichurri or béarnaise.
