As easy as it is to skip the butter/parsley addition, DON'T! It was too hot to bbq outside so I used my grill pan. I only made 1 lb of sirloin for the three of us (which is normally fine) and at the end of dinner we were all looking at the serving platter longing for more. I served this with sauteed crimini mushrooms and roasted asparagus. Just do it as it is written and all will be excellent with your steak!
Pretty impressive. Sirloin isn't my favorite steak-cut, but this marinade makes the meat tender and delicious without overpowering flavors. I'll bet those who say they don't like marinated meat would like this recipe. I used lime juice instead of lemon, and Mrs. Dash Garlic & Herb seasoning for the minced garlic. This recipe is a definite "keeper," and I'm going to experiment with other less-tender cuts of beef like flank steak or round steak. Thank you, Dropbear, for this great recipe. :)
I tried this recipe on two 1.5 lb sirloin steaks. I substituted the 1/4 c minced onion with 1/8 c granulated onion (not onion powder). I wasn't sure what the substitution ratio should be, but the marinade started getting thick so any more than that would not have worked. I tasted the marinade before pouring it over the beef - delish! I marinated for a little over 2 hours, then broiled 6 minutes on one side, flipped and broiled 5 minutes on the other. I let the steaks rest for about 15 minutes while I prepared the rest of the meal, then sliced against the grain. The meat was tender and flavorful and a perfect medium rare. Served with a steamed broccoli-cauliflower medley and sweet potato fries. Dinner was a big hit. Thank you, Dropbear!
The marinade was great. I marinated my steaks for about 6 hours and the flavor was deep into the meat. The sauce really complimented the flavors and made this extra special! A do again recipe for us!
Okay, I'm convinced. At first I dismissed this very simple recipe, with its dehydrated onions and instant minced garlic, out-of-hand, then I saw all of the reviews and tried it. Yeah, it's awesome. There's almost no reason to buy ribeye or fillet anymore, when one can make sirloin taste this good. (Okay, I did use a small fresh shallot and fresh garlic because I didn't have the dehydrated stuff, but I'm sure it works well either way.)Amazing!
Not too bad. I would only use this on a cheaper cut of meat to add flavor. This is a keeper of a recipe.
Great flavor, we used our vacuum sealer marinater for 30 minutes and added a little McCormick's steak seasoning right before grilling. I didn't have fresh parsley so used dried for the butter and it was amazing.
Followed the receipe exactly. The meat was tender & cooked perfectly, but just lacked any flavor.
Delicious! Everyone really loved the flavor depth that the marinade provided and the finishing butter/parsley sauce was the perfect ending. Thanks.
Addendum: Oooh, just made this again and loved it just as much! Didn't have parsley but I did have cilantro and it still was fabulous! You've just got to try this...simple, easy, and wonderful!
This was awesome! I used the lemon juice and broiled them for 7 min on each side. I used filets, but I still marinated it overnight to get all that flavor. The only other change I made was to use fresh onion and garlic. This was my first time cooking steak on my own, and it tasted way better than a restaurant's!
