If there's one thing I do well, it's ruining a good steak. Help! Does anyone have a good recipe for sirloin that I can't mess up?

I usually just throw mine on the grill with a little salt and pepper. You can also use steak rub or steak sauce, like A-1 on it too and cook it like that. It turns out well every time.

This summer I will definitely do the grill thing. I don't think I've ever grilled a whole steak . . . usually it's cut up into small pieces and on a kabob thingy-me-doodle. I'll try the A-1 sauce.

HEat the skillet until almost burning. Put VERY LITTLE oil(you can wipe excess oil with paper towel). Dry the steak with paper towel and then add salt and peper. Put it in the skillet until you see blood in the upper part. THEN you turn it. Just once. Leave it as long as you did the first time. Eat a gorgeous steak!!!Bon apetit!!!

I've been told many times to turn it over just once. It never quite works for me, but I shall try again. Thanks marguicha.

I do not have that much trouble. You have to use a cast iron or a good stainless steel pan and put a little oil in it and wait until it is hot. I usually pepper mine first, but do not salt it until later. Anyway I go by by guess and by golly so here some links. http://whatscookingamerica.net/Beef/CookingPerfectSteak.htm http://www.cottagesmallholder.com/?p=158 http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/sirloin-steak-recipe/index.html

A sirloin is so delicious that in my opinion it need nothing more than good cooking. Personally I let the steak sit at room temperature for a while. Salt both sides of the steak, not too much salt but enouch to give a good covering, and leave for a few minutes Get the pan nice and hot and quickly fry the steak to your liking. Once done leave the steak to rest. This is probably the most important step!!! Let it rest for at least 5 minutes! Enjoy with whatever you like with steak.

A little sea salt and pepper, maybe some garlic. Just throw them on the grill and make sure to cook them as done as you like. We use a bit of worstershire sauce on them too and let them sit for awhile before cooking. A good one for ribeye is to cover them in pepper and wrap them with bacon, throw them in the over at 350 til theyre done how you like, it is awesome.

Hi gtargirl...I always used to wonder, how some restaurants had melt in your mouth steak and others are tough. I spent years looking for the perfect recipe. Some were good, some were not but none were as tender as i had in this particular restaurant. Last summer while visiting my brother, I decided to take his advise no matter how costly. Since we dont eat steak every day, it is now our treat. The answer is to buy beef tenderloin. Its costly but I dont think you could mess it up if you tried! BBQed and turned over only once!...HP sauce...YUMMY!!...It will melt in your mouth. A good steak should never be well done. The more you cook it, the tougher it becomes. Turning once, assures it doesnt dry out. But i had never bought tenderloin before as its costly, but now, I wont buy anything else!

Here's a delicious recipe I came up with the other day. Using any kind of cooking oil, mix in some ground savory, salt, pepper, paprika, garlic, onion (you can use powder or freshly minced garlic and onion. Place oil/spice mixture in a bowl or zip loc bag and cover meat with mixture and allow to marinate for at least 30 minutes....the longer the better. Heat a skillet using medium high heat, adding a tiny bit more oil to ensure it will not stick. When you see the oil starting to form little bubbles, throw the steak on there and cook to desired done-ness. Rice or mashed potatoes go well with this!

I always love pepper steak and you don't even need a great cut of meat to make it work. I call it my camoflauge steak!! LOL I use olive oil in a skillet, saute garlic cloves, onions, green and red peppers. Saute until they are slightly browned and tender. I then put in steak cut into strips and brown that with the mix. Add a splash of soy sauce if you like or beef broth. Turn it down to a low setting on your stove and let it simmer until your meat is tender. Usually around 45 minutes. Add broth as you go along if it gets dry. I serve this over Rice or a bed of wide noodles. The broth really tenderizes the meat. My family loves it!
