Grilled Marinated Sirloin Steak Recipe

"This recipe was given to me by a friend who knows I like to grill," shares Corina Flansberg. "No one ever guesses that the secret ingredient is lemon-lime soda," adds the Carson City, Nevada reader. "Try the marinade with chicken, too. It's wonderful!"
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + marinating Grill: 10 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup lemon-lime soda
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon prepared horseradish
  • 1 boneless beef top sirloin steak (about 1 pound)

  • 2. Drain and discard marinade. Grill steaks, covered, over medium-hot heat for 3-5 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Yield: 4 servings.
