Reviews for Broiled Sirloin Steaks
"I agree with the other reviews - adjust the cook time. 7 minutes on one side and 6 on the other burned the juices in the pan and the steaks were tough and dry."
"The wet rub is an excellent amalgamation of flavors. I'd use it on a skirt steak but switch out the oregano and thyme for cumin and coriander. That being said, unless you want your 5 oz. sirloin well done, you'll need to reduce the cook time. We like our sirloins medium. I had four 4 oz. thick cut sirloins. I broiled 7 minutes on the first side, 5 minutes on the second side and let them rest 10 minutes afterwards. Came out just right."
"I agree with the other reviewer - flavor was nice, but steaks were chewy. I only made this once. I do, however, recommend the rest of her menu - the stuffed avocados and twice baked deviled potatoes are really good."
"[quote user="craigsuem"]The flavor of the marinade was good, but broiling the steaks made them tough.[/quote]I haven't actually tried the recipe, but I completely understand the above comment. The broiling time (15 minutes for a lean sirloin?) seems to me destined to yeild tough meat. I would cut the broiling time down to 5 minutes per side, then give the meat a good rest before serving. I bet that would help with that toughness.
"The flavor of the marinade was good, but broiling the steaks made them tough. Maybe I might use the marinade and then grill, but I wouldn't broil them again."
