Sirloin Steak

Total Time:
23 min
2 min
5 min
16 min

4 servings

  • 1 1/2 pounds sirloin steak, 1 to 1 1/4-inches thick
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Preheat oven on broiler setting. Make foil 'snake' out of aluminum foil to use to keep oven door slightly ajar so that broiler won't turn off if it gets too hot. Brush steak with oil and salt and pepper, to taste. Place a piece of foil on the bottom rack as a drip pan. Place another rack in the position above this and put the steak directly on this rack. Cook steak in this position for 5 minutes. Flip steak and cook for another 5 minutes. Move rack with steak to top position in oven, moving rack with foil and drippings just underneath, and cook for 3 minutes. Flip 1 last time and cook for another 3 minutes. Transfer steak to wire rack and rest for 3 to 5 minutes. The above times are for medium doneness. Adjust cooking times up or down as desired.

What? Are you using a top flame broiler (salamander) or a bottom electric broiler in your oven? How far away from heat source is your steak at each point? 5 minutes in the top position of my oven is 1/4" away from a raging flame which will result in charring and a call to the fire department. This "recipe" is ridiculous. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Perfect Recipe! I just cooked my sirloin and it is soooooo delicious. Thank you! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Worked great with a broiler pan...less fire danger, less mess. Tasty and simple came out pretty true to medium...maybe a little over after resting with foil over it. Next time I think I will marinate to make juicier. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We over cooked it a little following the directions and will adjust the time for the next time we prepare. Though we prefer medium, they turned out well, but still juicy. We had trouble in the beginning using the foil snake because our broiler would shut off. Once we removed the foil snake, the broiler worked fine. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I did what he said exactly except when it came to moving the meat to the top heat I cooked it 1-2 min per side to keep a little pink...came out great..made a garlic thyme parsley butter and added a dab after it came out of the oven...was really good. (Only alarm kept going off from the smoke even though I had the oven open, windows open, ceiling fans dog was freaking out lol) item not reviewed by moderator and published

Great recipe. Need to get more of these episodes on iTunes so I can memorize them on the plane! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Amazing! My steak was closer to two inches so I had it in the center rack for 6 minutes on each side and then 3 minutes per side on the top rack. I took it out to check the temperature and decided to stick it back in on the middle rack for 2 more minutes. I used my Breville Convection oven and the broiler pan that came with it. Since it was so thick, one corner was actually touching the top inside of the oven so it got a bit chard. The (large steak had sections that were medium for my boyfriend and medium rare (somewhat bloody and perfect for me! It was so juicy and buttery soft with beautiful seared outsides. I paired it with Chimichuri sauce and some whipped cauliflower with fresh garlic, butter, truffle salt, pepper and parmesan cheese. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Thank you....that is very important to me as my smoke alarm goes off so easily....on Valentine's day the Fire Department came....we were waiting for them. All I said was, "Sorry guys, I was just cooking." That's what you get for having a security service! ☺ item not reviewed by moderator and published
