HOME CHEF TIP!

Use a meat thermometer if you are unsure whether your sirloin steaks are done to your liking. Medium rare is 55 to 57 degrees C! Find out more about the different methods of knowing the doneness of your steak here!

How to prepare Sirloin Steak

  • Preheat oven at 180 degrees

  • Take the steaks out the fridge early enough so they have at least 1 hour to come up to room temperature. This is very important to make sure the meat cooks evenly from edge to centre!

  • Take whatever pan or griddle you have, place it on the stove and bring the temperature up to very medium high. You want the pan to be almost smoking at the time you place your steak on it! This helps the meat’s fat to caramelise properly and provide a little crust — if you’re lucky!

How to fry Sirloin Steak

  1. Bring sirloin steak to room temperature by taking out of the fridge for at least 30 minutes before cooking and then pat dry with a paper towel.
  2. Bring oven to 250° C before you cook your sirloin steak in it! Make sure to place skillet or baking tray in the oven during this preheat! This is the hack to your oven delivering a cheeky, caramelized crust on your sirloin steak!
  3. Before putting the sirloin steak in the oven, thoroughly rub 2 tablespoons of olive oil onto it. Add salt and freshly ground pepper, and rub in!
  4. Place steak on middle rack (6 inches from heating element) of the oven over the baking tray and apply a generous knob of butter to the top of the steak.
  5. Allow the sirloin steak to cook in the oven for 15 minutes.
  6. Finally give the sirloin steak a 15 minutes rest before serving.
  7. Cut against the grain!
