Balsamic-Seasoned Steak Recipe

A tasty marinade makes this sirloin so tender. Created by our Test Kitchen, you’ll love its simple preparation and scrumptious Swiss-cheese topping.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons steak sauce
  • 1 beef top sirloin steak (1 pound)
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 2 ounces reduced-fat Swiss cheese, cut into thin strips


  • 1. In a small bowl, combine vinegar and steak sauce; set aside. Rub steak with pepper. Place on a broiler pan. Broil 4 in. from the heat for 7 minutes.
  • 2. Turn; spoon half of the steak sauce mixture over steak. Broil 5-7 minutes longer or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°).
  • 3. Remove steak to a cutting board; cut across the grain into 1/4-in. slices. Place on a foil-lined baking sheet; drizzle with juices from cutting board and remaining steak sauce mixture. Top with cheese. Broil for 1 minute or until cheese is melted. Yield: 4 servings.
