Broiled Sirloin Steaks Recipe

“A butcher gave me great advice on cooking different types of meat," writes Karol Chandler-Ezell of Nacogdoches, Texas. "Marinating and broiling works really well on very lean cuts like this.” Karol suggests letting the steaks rest for a couple of minutes before serving to preserve moistness.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 4 beef top sirloin steaks (5 ounces each)
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms


  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the first six ingredients; rub over both sides of steaks.
  • 2. Broil 4 in. from the heat for 7 minutes. Turn steaks; top with mushrooms. Broil 7-8 minutes longer or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°) and mushrooms are tender. Yield: 4 servings.

"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."
