South of the Border Sirloin Recipe

Publisher Photo
Marinated in beer and jalapenos, these steaks have a mild kick the whole family will love! They’re topped with veggies, bread crumbs and cheese for a fussed-over look and very special taste. But they’re oh-so-easy to prepare! Gilda Lester - Millsboro, Delaware

Nutritional Facts

1 serving equals 280 calories, 12 g fat (3 g saturated fat), 50 mg cholesterol, 228 mg sodium, 15 g carbohydrate, 3 g fiber, 28 g protein. Diabetic Exchanges: 3 lean meat, 2 vegetable, 1 fat.

Directions

  1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the first six ingredients. Cut steak into four serving-size pieces; place in bag. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for up to 2 hours.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large ovenproof skillet, cook onions in 2 teaspoons oil over medium heat for 15-20 minutes or until onions are golden brown, stirring occasionally. Add peppers and garlic; cook 4 minutes longer. Remove and keep warm.
  3. Drain and discard marinade. In the same skillet over medium heat, cook steak in 2 teaspoons oil for 3-4 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°).
  4. Spoon onion mixture over steaks. In a small bowl, combine the bread crumbs, cheese and remaining oil; sprinkle over tops. Broil 3-4 in. from the heat for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 4 servings.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
