Marinated Sirloin Steaks

Asian meets Mediterranean in this flavorful, sweet-and- spicy marinade from Sarah Vasques of Milford, New Hampshire “The blend of honey and soy sauce really works well with the olive oil and balsamic vinegar,” she notes. Her marinade is also great when grilling New York strip steaks.
  • Total Time
    Prep: 10 min. + marinating Grill: 10 min.
  • Makes
    2 servings


  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 2 beef top sirloin steaks (4 ounces each)
  • 3 green onions, sliced


  • In a blender, combine the honey, soy sauce, oil, vinegar, garlic and pepper; cover and process until blended. Pour 1/3 cup marinade into a shallow dish; add steaks and onions and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hours. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade for basting.
  • Drain the steaks and discard their marinade. On a greased grill rack, grill steaks, covered, over medium-hot heat, or broil 4 in. from the heat for 4-5 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°), basting occasionally with reserved marinade.

    On one hand I didn't like it, on the other I see its potential... I didn't BBQ it on a grill, rather cooked it in the oven I'm wondering if that made a difference. It is very sweet.. might be good for a kid that is a picky eater!

    Very sweet and tender. I marinated it for about 6 hours and it was great.
