Looking for a great grilled sirloin steak recipe? Well, look no further.

This is one of those delicious 'meals in 30 minutes or less' recipes, and I'm sure you won't find anything tastier or easier. Here's how this great recipe came about.

A while back, not too long ago, the couple in the RV parked next to us dropped by and invited themselves over for dinner. Basically, I encourage that kind of thing, as we always enjoy making new friends on our trips, plus they brought a great salad, so no complaints.

The problem was I only had a couple of sirloins in the refrigerator, which I had planned on grilling later. As it was too late to go find a store, I had a bit of a problem until I remembered what a friend of mine - a pretty good chef, by the way - had once told me about the Chinese practice of using meat slices to make a little meat go a long way.

Based on a hazy memory, this sirloin steak recipe quickly evolved into one of my top sirloin steak recipes, and I now make it often, outdoors and at home as well.

As a matter of fact, in these hard-pressed times of economic turmoil, turning a meal for two into a meal for four is not a bad idea at all. And Asian recipes give a bit of twist to everyday recipes.

So, here we go with grilled sirloin steak and broccoli, Asian-style. And don't forget the chopsticks.

Makes 4 servings  

Ingredients:

For the steak

  • Two sirloin steaks, about 1.5" thick, fat removed
  • 1 tablespoon coarsely ground black pepper, or to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Coarse sea salt (optional)

For the broccoli

  • 1 head of broccoli, trimmed and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, thinly shredded
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 3 scallions, sliced into 2-inch strips 
  • 1 fresh chili pepper, thinly sliced into strips
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons mirin
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Preparation:

Steak

  1. Prepare the steak sauce:
  2. Mix the soy sauce, mirin, balsamic vinegar, ginger, salt and pepper in a small bowl
  3. Rub the steak lightly with the pepper 
  4. Heat the oil in a heavy Teflon-coated skillet. When the oil is hot, saute the steaks until they are nicely browned on both sides, about 3 minutes per side.
  5. Pour the sauce mixture over the steaks and bring to the boil over medium/high heat. Cook the steak in the sauce for a further two minutes, flipping periodically to coat them with the sauce, which should be thickening into a syrupy texture, until the steaks are nicely glazed. 
  6. Remove steaks from skillet and slice lengthwise into 1/2 -inch slices 

Broccoli

  1. Boil the trimmed broccoli pieces for about two minutes. Strain and rinse under cold running water
  2. Add the oil to the skillet and heat over medium heat 
  3. When the oil is very hot, add the ginger, garlic and chili pepper and saute for about 1 minute. 
  4. Add the broccoli and the scallions to the mix and saute for another minute, stirring continuously.
  5. Add the soy sauce, the mirin, the salt and the pepper, and mix for another minute

Place a portion of your grilled sirloin steak and broccoli over a bed of white rice, sprinkle with a little coarse salt, and serve.
