Grilled Sirloin Steaks

This is, by far, my favorite cut of steak. It's got great flavor with just the right amount of texture. By cooking it this way, you'll find that you won't want to add any sauce to it.

I prefer my steaks done "Pittsburgh" also called "Black and Blue", Black on the outside and Cold in the middle. This can't be done with a thin steak, and the thicker the better. This is also why I ring it in the reserved, trimmed fat, to make sure the temperature of the grill is hot enough to really sear the outside.

  • 2 Large Sirloin Steaks, at least 1 1/4" thick
  • Vegetable Oil
  • Butt Kickin' Blacken, Original Recipe, as needed
  • Kosher Salt, as needed
  • Black Pepper, as needed

1. Trim any excess fat and grizzle from each steak. Save the fat for grilling.

Coat the steaks with the vegetable oil, Then rub a lot of salt, pepper, and blacken into the meat. The oil will both keep the meat from sticking to the grill, and help the outside sear to seal in the moisture.

2. Place the steaks on a hot grill, and lay the saved fat along side. The fat will help the flames to start. For rare, cook the steaks to an internal temperature of 110 degrees. I use an instant read thermometer and you stick it into the middle of the meat from the side.

3. When the steaks are done, set them on a platter, and cover with aluminum foil to let them rest for at least 10 minutes, or up to 20. The internal temperature of the steaks will rise about 7 - 10 degrees during this time.
