There is no mystery to cooking wonderful steaks on the barbeque. As long as you adhere to some professional steak cooking tips and choose good quality beef, you will find the meat does exactly what you want it to, cooking to succulent perfection and melting in the mouth like good steak should. The following recipe makes use of sirloin steaks, which are prized for fusing a juicy texture with plenty of flavor. Sirloin comes from the hip section of cattle and you will often find a cross-section of hip bone in the steak, which is where the names flat bone, round bone, pin bone and wedge bone sirloin steak come from.
Although perhaps not so tender as striploin, sirloin has a slightly more intense flavor. It is also an affordable cut and perfect for barbeques, so there you have several reasons to choose this wonderful cut of meat. The barbeque is your perfect cooking method too, because not only does the dry heat cook the steak really well, but the smoke gives it the most fantastic flavor too. Steak is always good when barbequed, and you can either cook it by itself or add some chicken or fish to the grill, so you can offer your dinner guests a selection of proteins. Do not be surprised if everyone opts for the steak though!
Our recipe includes a simple homemade garlic butter which you melt over the steak when it is cooked to your liking. All you need to make it is the butter itself, as well as some fresh and dried garlic. You could use just fresh or just dried garlic powder, but using the 2 offers more depth of flavor contrast in the finished butter. Also, do not even think of swapping the butter for margarine. You need real butter in this recipe if you want a great result!
More Tips for BBQ Sirloin Steak
Ensure the steaks reach room temperature before you cook them, else the sudden blast of heat will make them seize up and toughen, and that is no way to treat quality steak. Half an hour in a warm kitchen should be long enough to bring it to room temperature, and an hour will ensure it is. Some salt and pepper is the only seasoning you need on the steak. You do not need to marinate it or add a spice rub. Sirloin has its own distinctive flavor and salt and black pepper are perfect for bringing out its wonderful, natural, meaty taste.
The cooking time will be roughly 4 minutes for rare or 5 minutes for medium, but it depends on how thick your steaks are and the exact temperature of your barbeque so keep an eye on them and press them to see how done they are. If they feel squishy, they are rare, if they feel quite firm they are medium-rare, and if they feel firm they are medium and need to come off the barbeque. Try not to cook them beyond medium if you want truly succulent results. Something else professional chefs do is let the steaks sit for a few minutes after cooking. This allows the juices to redistribute, which keeps the meat juicy and delicious. Serve this with your favorite sides for a seriously incredible meal.
