Sesame Sirloin Steak

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

    This was so good! My husband and kids were raving about it. The marinade makes the meat tender and has a great flavor.

    Sesame sirloin steak is a simple, easy meal to make and one my family simply loves. We make it whenever we have all the ingredients and it's definitely a keeper.
