This medium rare sirloin recipe comes out perfect every single time. Marinate the sirloin, bake it in the oven and when you cut into it, you’ll marvel at how easy and delicious it is.
It is so funny to me that I’m making sirloin steak filets on a regular basis.
Why, you ask?
Because we were vegetarians for a good chunk of time. And once we started eating meat again, it took me years to be comfortable making steak.
If I’d have known how easy it was, I would have started making it a lot sooner.
Does Grass Fed Beef Taste Different?
You bet your sweet bippy it does. At least it does to me and I believe it would to you too. If I made this exact dish with one grass fed steak and one regular steak and you tried them side by side, you would see what I mean.
Here’s a great chart that shows you all the different cuts of beef and how to cook them.
Is Grass Fed Beef More Expensive?
Yes, it is. The cow is allowed to graze, is not given hormones and is raised more ‘naturally’ then non grass fed cows. You can taste the difference in the meat.
Tips on making the medium rare sirloin filets:
- Use a gallon zip lock bag to marinate the filets, it’s cheap and easy
- Place sirloin into the bag and add all the marinade ingredients. Knead the bag to mix and cover the sirloin with the marinade
- Place the bag of steak on the counter for an hour before you bake it so the sirloin gets to room temperature
- Cover a jelly roll pan with foil and place a wire rack on the pan for easy clean up
- Bake first at a low temperature and when you raise the temperature of the oven, make sure to take the filets out of the oven until it comes to temperature
