The sirloin is an amazing cut of meat, and is best when cooked on the grill, in the skillet or stir fried.
When cooking sirloin steak, you'll want to get your side dishes prepared first. Classic pairings for sirloin steak are sautéed potatoes, sautéed mushrooms, and a green vegetable such as asparagus, or spinach. Let the meat rest at room temperature while you get the side dishes ready.
2 Sirloin steaks 6-8 oz each, about 1-inch think
Salt & pepper to taste
1 tbsp TF Lard
2 tbsp unsalted butter melted
2 cloves garlic minced
Fresh thyme or rosemary garnish - optional
Pat dry the steaks and season both sides with salt and pepper. Have all your other ingredients prepared and set aside a wire cooling rack.
Place a large cast iron skillet over high hear and allow to heat up for one minute. Make sure your ventilation/exhaust fan is on!
Add TF Lard and wait until it's shimmering before adding the steak. This is necessary to get a good sear.
Fry for 2 minutes and then flip over.
Fry on the other side for 2 more minutes
Pour the butter on top of the steak and scatter the minced garlic around.
Cook one more minute until garlic is starting to turn brown on the edges.
Remove steaks to a cooking rack and cover lightly with aluminum foil to keep warm
Let rest for 5 minutes before serving. Garnish with optional rosemary or thyme, serve and enjoy!
