It’s summer time which means it’s time to fire up the grill! We love to cook outside (even in the hot Texas weather) but burgers and grilled chicken over and over can get boring. The other day sirloin steaks were on sale so I picked up a package. Now, sirloin is not Justin’s favorite steak to grill (he says they are too tough) but I found a recipe in the O Magazine that sounded good and decided to give it a try.
WOW, it was super yummy! You have to make this for yourself. We made grilled sweet potato fries & fruit kabobs to go with it, delicious!
Here is the recipe for the steak (I tweaked mine a little):
Package of sirloin steaks
Kosher salt & freshly ground pepper
3 Tbsp. olive oil, plus more for grilling
1 (12 oz,) bottle pilsner
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1 medium onion, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1. Generously season steaks on both sides with salt & pepper. Place in nonreactive baking dish just large enough to hold them; drizzle with olive oil (I skipped that part).
2. Combine beer, lime juice (I used 2 limes), onion, garlic, jalapeno, and cilantro in a nonreactive mixing bowl to form a marinade. Pour marinade over steaks. Cover and refrigerate turning steaks occasionally for 2-6 hours (I forgot to turn mine).
3. Fire up the grill, remove steaks from baking dish; discard marinade. Grill steaks until they reach desired temperature (medium well, ect…). Remove from grill and let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
Let me know if you try this and what you think, I’d love to see how they turn out for you.
