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!
