Life just seems simple and easy when you are relaxing in the garden and dinner is cooking away on the BBQ. There is something about a BBQ smell that is just magic and automatically makes you slow down and relax. With your Sahara BBQ, there are so many grilling options. Between the rotisserie, griddle pan, pizza stone – sometimes you just can’t beat a good old steak and chips!
A grilled sirloin steak coated with glorious garlic butter is one of my favourite things to do on our Sahara BBQ. It will have you licking your fingers with delight.
As we all know, sirloin steaks can be expensive, so if you are spending the money to get a great steak, be careful where you shop. I would recommend buying your meat from a trusted, reputable butcher if possible.
Getting ready to Grill…
Before grilling your sirloin steak, you’ll want to preheat your grill. Turn burners on the side of the grill you are cooking on to high. Leave the burners on the other side of the grill set to low – that side will still get hot, just not as hot as the side with the burners on high. Let the grills heat up for about 10/15 minutes with the hood down.
Don’t forget to give your grill a good clean before placing those expensive steaks on it. Using a grill brush, clean any debris off your grill grates.
Then, using a paper towel (dipped in oil) or a brush, rub the hot grill grates, being sure to coat all the grill grates with oil.
Grilling your Steak
Once the grill is ready to go, transfer the steaks to the high-heat area of the grill. Let them sear for 4-5 minutes on one side before flipping with tongs to the other side. Sear for another 4-5 minutes on that side.
Let’s not forget a very important step – resting the steak. The reason it needs to rest is because the juices need time to redistribute. Otherwise, it will just flow away, leaving you with a brown, overcooked piece of meat, which is not that appealing to anyone. When you are ready to serve, place a scoop of garlic and herb butter over the steak, then slice it and serve. Always add the butter after you remove the steak from the grill, so it doesn’t drip off into the grates.
