Grilled Sirloin Steak Perfection

  • This is the best recipe for grilling sirloin steaks with a smoky, savory flavor and insta-worthy charred, grill marks!
  • Use this foundation” recipe whenever you want to BBQ steaks on the grill or over charcoal!
  • Grill a few extra steaks to use in recipes all week long!

Just 4 Ingredients!

Steak Most sirloins are sold boneless; however, bone-in sirloins (aka T-bones) will have more flavor and works fine. Top sirloins and sirloin tips may benefit from a simple marinade before grilling since they tend to be tougher cuts. Avoid steaks with a gristly white vein running through them, as this is tough and chewy.

Seasoning – Any oil and salt and pepper are really all you need to bring out the natural flavor of sirloin steaks. But some savory seasoning like a savory garlic and herb or this zesty rub recipe will uplevel any steak!

Variations – Make kabobs and thread seasoned chunks of steak on skewers. (Soak wooden skewers in water before using so they don’t burn on the grill.) Top steaks with compound butter before resting, and serve them with a side of tangy homemade chimichurri sauce.

How To Grill Sirloin Steak

  1. Preheat the grill to high heat (as per the recipe below).
  2. Rub steaks with oil and season generously.
  3. Add the steaks to the grill at a 45° angle and cook. Rotate steaks 90° to create a cross-hatch pattern and cook for another 2 minutes. Repeat on the other side. 
  4. Transfer steaks to a pan and top with a pat of butter.
  5. Cover loosely with foil and let the steak rest.

Pro Tip

Make some grilled vegetables and mushrooms while the steaks are resting, then add a tangy tomato salad for a light and satisfying low-carb dinner!

Tips For Tender Steak

It’s easy to achieve steak perfection with these simple tips!

  • Let the steaks come to room temperature before cooking. This ensures the meat cooks evenly throughout.
  • Always preheat a gas or charcoal grill to allow the heat to sear the outside of the steaks, keeping all the savory juices inside!
  • For best results, use an instant-read thermometer to prevent overcooking. Take the steaks off the grill when they are a few degrees shy of the desired temperature since they continue to cook while resting.
  • It might be tempting to slice and serve that savory steak right away, but that would be a big mistake. Let the meat rest for a few minutes to keep it tender and flavorful.

Steak Temperature

  • Rare: 125°F
  • Medium-Rare: 135°F
  • Medium: 145°F
  • Medium Well: 155°F

How To Use Leftovers

Slice leftover steak and add to a zesty Asian stir fry,  or add to a grilled veggie salad, a hearty Philly cheesesteak casserole or even soup!
