posted by Hoasabi Broiled Sirloin Steak A friend gave me a sirloin steak so I came to GR looking for a recipe because I didn't feel like uncovering the grill. I saw "broiled" but this steak is not broiled so its misnamed. But, I thought the ingredients looked interesting so I decided to try it. This is OK. I clicked four stars for "good" and see "will make it again" pops up as well. This was good and my steak was tender but I won't make it again as my steak was well done and I prefer grilling or broiling a steak. I had a bit for lunch and will heat it up under the broiler for dinner and make a steak sandwich out of it.
Looking at the recipe picture, it looks like a flank steak because of the grain. Here is a web site showing a chart for meat doneness, including remove from oven temp and ideal temp time after resting: http://reluctantgourmet.com/tips-guides/tips-facts/item/1118-meat-doneness-chart If you don't have an instant read thermometer, get one. To make any cut of meat mouth watering tender, bake or broil at 200 to 250F and monitor with the instant read thermometer. The lower baking temperature helps break down the collagen and inter-connective tissue and make any tough steak very tender. So buy a cheap cut of meat, like the flank steak and others, and bake it low and slow to make it as tender as tenderloin.
I like the sound of oyster sauce and brown sugar. Sorry that your sirloin came out well done. I like mine rare to med rare, too. Its disappointing when I over cook something. Especially a sirloin cut. Good looking pic. Theres a lot of juice left. Good for dipping. Did it come out dry?
It wasn't tough at all, MrP. That's probably due to the nice cut of meat it was. I just like mine rare. I wish the poster had stated that 45 minutes results in well done, but I suppose I should have figured that out by myself. :) My pudgy little doggie thought it was delicious and didn't see what I was fussing about. :-P The onions were so good, ml2c. They were sitting in that oyster sauce and brown sugar and came out really delicious. The steak sandwich made a great dinner.
