How to cook a sirloin steak on the grill and oven

Learn How to cook a sirloin steak on the grill and oven. Today we share step by step sirloin cooking instruction so you can make the perfect Top Sirloin steak.

 Hi, I’m Chef Philippe, corporate chef for Chicago Steak Company, and welcome to my kitchen. Today we’re looking at the flavor-packed USDA Prime Top Sirloin.

First, I want to talk a little bit about the steak and then we will dive into step by step cooking instructions so you can make the perfect Top Sirloin steak. Top Sirloin is known as the lean cut of steak with a very beefy flavor. It is important to note that it is a TOP sirloin; it’s different from a bottom sirloin or simply a sirloin steak. The Top Sirloin is the most prized of the sirloin steak because it has a greater degree of tenderness. One thing to keep in mind this is a very lean steak so it is very, very important that we are careful on the cooking procedure of this steak.  As you will see later on, this steak is cooked very quickly on the grill, finished in the oven for about 2-3 minutes. You really want to be able to eat this steak at a medium stage; no more than that.

Let’s take a look at our Top Sirloin. This is a USDA Prime Top Sirloin steak which means it comes from the top 2% of beef in the U.S. We also offer an upper 1/3 USDA Choice line of steaks, which are steaks that just missed the USDA Prime grade, but don’t have the ticket price attached with USDA Prime. Today we are going to be cooking a USDA Prime Wet Aged Top steak. You may be asking: What is a wet-aged steak? That is a great question and I encourage you to watch our distinction video where I talk about that in more detail. In short, aging is a process that makes a steak more flavorful, juicy and delicious.

There are two methods of aging: wet aging and dry aging. We offer both. You’ve received our steaks, they came frozen to you; make sure you place them in a refrigerator for 24 hours to give them a chance to thaw out overnight. We have done so and as you can see here, we have 2 Top Sirloins. One that I have taken out already and the other one that is still in the bag. It’s crucial that you take these steaks out 30 minutes before you are planning on cooking them to give them an opportunity to bloom and to make sure that your steak is at room temperature so that when we place them on the grill the steak will cook evenly all the way through.

Your steaks have been out now for 30 minutes. What we need to do next is to make sure that we are generously seasoning the steak with our Chicago Steak seasoning that will give it this flavor and crustiness that we are looking for. The other reason that we are seasoning this steak now and then wait 5 minutes is to make sure that the flavor profile of the seasoning penetrates all the way through the beef which is very important. You never want to put seasoning on a steak and place it on the grill as the salt will draw out all the moisture and dry out your steaks. Let’s be generous and put some seasonings on these Top Sirloins.

Now, we’ll wait 5 minutes. While we’re waiting and making sure that our seasoning is penetrating through the beef we will make sure that we oil our grill grate. All we want to do is take a little bit of vegetable oil and just slightly brush it on the grill. That will make sure that your top sirloin never ever sticks to your grill which is key to an excellent steak.  Let’s put this Top Sirloin steak on this grill and let’s cook it perfectly. A minute on both sides; great crust, great crisp. Let’s get it on. One minute and we’ll flip. It’s been a minute and half, both sides are done; let’s put into our pre-heated oven. It’s been five minutes, let’s take these steaks out.

If you take a look at the steaks you can see how nice, plump and juicy it is. What we want to make sure is that for the next 3 minutes we are going to leave the steaks to sit and rest so that the juices reabsorb. It’s been 3 minutes, our Top Sirloins have had a chance to rest, now let’s slice into it. Oh my goodness, look at this steak! It’s absolutely, perfectly done. A nice medium. You know what I have to do- I have to steal a little piece to make sure it’s good! The nice beefy flavor, the chew is absolutely incredible. Top Sirloin steak grilled to perfection just the way you are going to enjoy it.
