Sesame Sirloin Steak Recipe

Sesame Sirloin Steak Recipe

The first time I tried this recipe was years ago when we were going to my in-laws for a Mother's Day dinner. We've made a few adjustments to the original recipe, only improving on the great taste. -Paulette Barnett, Guelph, Ontario
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + marinating Grill: 15 min. YIELD:2 servings
