Delicious Sirloin Steak Recipe

by Pete Genot on September 7, 2010 · 2 comments

I’ve been looking for a good sirloin steak recipe for long time. I finally found one that is quick, easy to make, healthy and delicious…all of the things I look for when searching for a recipe. Sirloin Steak Recipe

You see…we eat a lot of lean proteins in our house, especially grass-fed pasture-raised beef from a local farmer. This guy cares about his animals, only raises a few at a time for friends and family, and does not use growth hormones, antibiotics and other nasty stuff you find in commercial factory farm beef.

The problem is that when you have beef as often as we do, you sometimes get stuck eating the same thing over-and-over again. This can lead to boredom, and the next thing you know you never want to see another slice of beef again.

So, I scoured the Internet for a sirloin steak recipe that met all of my criteria, and after some trial-and-error, I found one that made the cut.

We love this teriyaki sirloin steak recipe, and I’m sure you will too.

It has fewer than 10 ingredients, is super easy to make…especially if you like to grill…is high in protein, low in carbs and has a wonderful flavor.

I hope you enjoy it!

Sirloin Steak Recipe Meal Ideas

For a great low-carb fat burning meal, you can slice the steak into strips and serve it with a side of steamed vegetables (like broccoli and red bell pepper slices in the picture). If you want a more balanced meal, you can serve it with a 1/2 cup cooked brown rice and vegetables.

The meat also tastes great cold.

When you prepare the sirloin steak recipe exactly as directed, you may have some leftovers depending on the size of your family. If you do, try the meat sliced cold and tossed on top of a mixed salad. Makes a great lunch the next day!

Editor’s Comments:

As you probably know, about 80% of the time I follow-up strict meal plans from Empowered Nutrition. The plans are great, but…the food can get a little bland and monotonous at times.

So, I like to use the exact AMOUNTS of food called for in the meal plans…BUT, use some of my favorite recipes for preparing the food.

A great book I picked-up recently is Anabolic Cooking by Dave Ruel.  Dave…AKA the “Muscle Cook”…is a competitive bodybuilder, professional Fitness Coach and Nutritionist. 

He earned the nickname “The Muscle Cook” by creating and developing Recipes and Meal Plans specific to bodybuilding and fitness that are healthy, tasty and far from ordinary. For more information on Dave’s book, and to get some FREE recipes, click the link below to check out his website:

Just quickly read the Teriyaki Steak Recipe. Noticed that it has Splenda in it, which is an unhealthy artificial sweetener. Better instead to substitue stevia, agave nectar, Sweet ‘n Slender (by Wisdom Leaf) or possibly Truvia or Z-Sweet (Both contain erythritol plus natural flavors not derived from soy; Truvia also contains stevia.)

If you prefer a brown sugar taste instead, try sucanat (very unrefined and brown sugar cane crystals) or you could add a little molasses to the sugar substitutes mentioned above.

Hi Ann,

I agree with you…given the choice, I would rather use Stevia above all the others. I have recently read some bad things about agave nectar, so I have stopped using that when I cook.

The thing about the Teriyaki Beef recipe is that it tastes best when made with brown sugar. Since we try to avoid sugar in a fat-loss diet, we substituted brown Splenda instead. Not a perfect choice I know, but a decent one thinking about the taste/integrity of the recipe.

I never thought to mix molasses in with stevia. Hmmm….I’ll have to do some experimenting in the kitchen!

Thanks so much for your feedback and for sharing some great alternatives!
