Easy Grilled Sirloin Steak Recipe
First, you need to make sure you buy a nice piece of meat. Good sirloin will be a light, bright red color and will be between 1- 1 1/2 inches thick.
Remove your beef from the refrigerator at least 30-60 minutes before you are ready to cook it. This is super important! If you don't allow the meat to become room temperature before cooking it, it might toughen up when it hits the grill. After your steaks become room temperature, you will want to pat them dry with a paper towel. This is also important because you want your steaks grilled, not steamed and excess water on the meat will become a steaming agent.
Next, you are going to want to cover both sides of the meat with your marinate or spice rub. There are hundreds if not thousands of ways you can season your steak so look for a seasoning that suits your taste. My husband prefers a simple salt and pepper rub as to not drown out the steaks natural flavors. Another good combo is salt, pepper, sage, garlic and thyme. Try different combinations and you will be surprised at all of the different tastes you can create!
Next, you will want to spray a non-stick cooking spray on the grill BEFORE you turn it on. Wait until the grill is good and hot before you put the steak on because sirloin needs to cook on high, dry heat.
Cook the steak to your likeness, only flipping one time. A good Medium steak will cook to an internal temperature of approximately 130 degrees. If you like it medium rare, go to 125 degrees and rare, 120 degrees. Before you enjoy your steak, allow it to sit for a few minutes to let the moisture redistribute itself. Dad will love a nice, juicy steak vs. a dry, tough steak.
Pair your steak with a delicious side of veggies or pasta and Dad will remember this delicious meals for years to come!
