Fire Day Friday: Mustard Crusted Top Sirloin

All I have to say is… oh my god this was good!!

Ok.. I really do have more to say then that, but still… oh my god this was good!!!

I knew I had created something special when I overheard Chris in the other room, as I was taking pictures, exclaim:  “Wow, the potatoes are really good.”  2 clicks of the camera later, I hear – “Oh, man, these green beans are good too.”  2 clicks of the camera later, I hear – “Oh my god the steak is amazing, and so tender!  Mmmmmmmm!!!”

(YAY!!)  I love hearing that!!!  Nothing better then being patted on the back for something you created in the kitchen… or in this case… on the grill!!  Honestly, the steak was so good, there was no need for any type of seasoning or sauce after it hit our plates.  I didn’t get as great of a sear on the outside as I would have liked – a better sear would have gave me more of the crust I was looking for – but it was cooked perfectly otherwise!!  And Chris was right, it was really tender and very flavorful!
Mustard Crusted Top Sirloin
Printable Recipe 
1 lb top sirloin steaks (I had one really big piece that I cut into two smaller pieces) (oh, and you can use any cut of beef, by the way)
3 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 Tablespoon freshly chopped rosemary
1 Tablespoon freshly chopped thyme
Salt and Pepper


In a small bowl, mix together the Dijon, olive oil, lemon juice, rosemary, and thyme until well combined.  Season both sides of the steak with salt and pepper.  Slather the sauce over both sides of the meat and allow to marinate in the refrigerator for 4-6 hours.
Remove the steak from the refrigerator.  Preheat the grill to 400-425 degrees.  Place the steaks over the heat and grill about 4-8 minutes per side (depending on desired doneness).  Remove from the grill and allow to stand for 4 minutes before cutting into it.  Enjoy!
