June 10, 2011: Grilled Top Sirloin Sandwiches Recipe

Bookmark and Share

Top sirloin is a funny kind of steak – it can be really tough or it can be pretty tender. It’s hard to tell what you’re going to get when you buy a package at the grocery store. Just to be on the safe side, I always marinate it. This recipe is for the marinated steaks and a mustard glaze that goes over the top during the last few minutes of grilling – and this combo is perfect for a hearty dinner sandwich (I served mine on pieces of a store-bought cheese loaf).
Grilled Sirloin Steak Sandwiches topped with Balsamic Caramelized Onions, Peppers, and Mushrooms and served with Parmesan Crusted Corn on the Cob

Balsamic Marinade

¼ cup balsamic
¼ cup olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper
1 ½ pounds thick cut top sirloin chops

Mix together ingredients in a nonmetallic dish. Add meat and marinade for a minimum of two hours. Remove from marinade just before grilling and sprinkle with sea salt.

Mustard Glaze

1/8 cup yellow mustard
1/8 cup Dijon mustard
1 t. citrus peel seasoning (look for it in the spice section; can substitute a mixture of freshly grated lemon and orange peel, dehydrated minced, crushed coriander seeds and sesame seeds)
1 t. minced garlic
½ t. salt
Freshly ground black pepper

Combine all ingredients. Brush on both side of steaks during the last few minutes of grilling.

For sandwiches: Slice steak thinly and pile on top of bread. The mustard glaze is the only condiment necessary although you may wish to top the sandwiches with caramelized onions, bell peppers, and mushrooms (recipe will be posted tomorrow, June 11, 2011).

Tip: cook the sirloin steaks to medium rare then take off the grill and put on a platter. Tent with a piece of foil for five minutes so the juices don’t run off.
