Here in Texas, you can never go wrong serving beef for dinner. Whether it’s stroganoff, fresh fajitas, or grilled sirloin steak, when beef is on the menu, you know everyone will clear their plate. That being said, over the years, some of the classics have fallen out of favor. They deserve a second look.
Grilled sirloin steak is at the top of our list of overlooked classics. It’s delicious and doesn’t get the spotlight it deserves. If you haven’t had a grilled sirloin steak recently, keep reading. We’ll tell you everything you need to know to prepare and enjoy this classic cut of beef.
What is a Grilled Sirloin Steak
Grilled sirloin steak is a lean cut with big, beefy flavors. It’s tasty with just a little salt and pepper but shines with marinades and hearty steak sauces. It’s a favorite of grill masters because even though grilled sirloin steak is so tasty, it’s still affordable enough to enjoy on a weeknight.
Sirloins have less marbling and a firmer texture than more expensive cuts because it’s from an area that gets more exercise compared to tenderloins or ribeyes. But that’s not bad, and it doesn’t mean that grilled sirloin steak is tough or chewy. In fact, many steak lovers prefer a grilled sirloin steak over all the other cuts.

Tips for Preparing Grilled Sirloin Steak
When it comes to grilling perfection, every cut of beef has unique characteristics. Knowing what those are will ensure you cook your grilled sirloin steak perfectly! Here are a few essential tips to remember:
- Spice up your meat generously with your favorite rub. Try our “Come and Steak It” signature seasoning. It’s specially formulated to bring out the flavors of beef.
- Give a delicious marinade a try. Grilled sirloin steak tastes amazing after an overnight soak.
- Use a fast cooking method and high, dry heat (like grilling). This guarantees a fantastic sear and the best flavor.
- Because grilled sirloin steak is leaner than other cuts, it’s best not to cook it past medium (145°F). Otherwise, it will become dry and chewy.
- To finish the perfect grilled sirloin steak, don’t forget to rest it after cooking and slice it against the grain.
Delicious Grilled Sirloin Steak Recipe
Now that you know more about the cut, it’s time to start grilling. Here’s a simple grilled sirloin steak recipe served with Chili Herb Butter. We love it, and we think you will too:
- 4 Premium Quality Texas Beef Sirloin
- 2 sticks of unsalted butter
- 4 Tbsp “Come and Steak It” signature seasoning rub
- 2 tsp smoked paprika
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp fresh thyme, finely chopped
Here are the steps:
- Remove your sirloins and the butter from the fridge an hour before cooking. Set the butter aside to soften. Cover the beef with plastic wrap, and let it come to room temperature. Place the steaks on a plate and season all sides with “Come and Steak It” signature spice rub.
- When you’re ready to cook, preheat your grill to medium-high. While you wait for it to warm up, prepare the Chili Herb Butter.
- Place butter, smoked paprika, chili powder, garlic, and thyme in a bowl and stir until combined. Set aside for serving.
- Once the butter is ready and the grill is hot, place the steaks over the hottest part of the fire and cook for 3-5 minutes per side or until they reach your desired temperature. Use an instant-read thermometer! More on this below.
- When your grilled sirloin steaks are about 5 degrees away from being done, remove them from the flame and let them rest for 5 minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute and ensures juicy results.
- To serve, place a dollop of Chili Herb Butter butter on the top of each steak.
Remember: The best way to gauge when your grilled sirloin steak is done is to use an instant-read thermometer. Just insert the probe into the thickest part of the meat to determine doneness.
Here’s a temperature guide to help you:
- Rare: 130 degrees F
- Medium Rare: 135 degrees F
- Medium: 145 degrees F
- Medium Well: 150 degrees F
- Well Done: 160 degrees F
It’s best to take the steak off the heat a few degrees before you reach your desired temperature, as they’ll continue to cook as they rest.
Also, remember that steaks should rest for about 5 minutes before cutting into them.
