I found these great cuts of sirloin steak at Down to Earth in Mishawaka, from Roseland Organic Farms, based in Dowagiac, Mich. Roseland has been raising grass fed beef since 1985 with no antibiotics, hormones or growth regulators, insecticides or herbicides. I don’t usually cook steaks in the oven, but I thought this would be great way to use the broiler and get a nice crisp brown exterior to this quality steak. After the beef is marinated a day ahead of time, it really only takes about 10 minutes to cook and prep this main dish. You can add some sides to complete the entree—I made asparagus and creamy mashed potatoes to accompany my steaks.
Organic Broiled Steak
- 2 8oz. Sirloin Steaks *Roseland Organic Farms Beef
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- ½ cup beef broth
- 1-2 tbsp. of salt, to taste
- 1-2 tbsp. fresh ground pepper, to taste
- After the steaks were thawed, I covered the steaks with salt and pepper and olive oil and then put them in the beef broth to marinate for a day.
- Preheat oven to the broil setting.
- Remove steaks from the beef broth and the fridge to let them get to room temperature about one hour before cooking.
- Pat the steaks lightly on each side till dry.
- Once oven is heated, put the steaks in for 4 minutes on each side.
- Remember: The best temperature for medium rare to medium is about 125-130, but if your thermometer reads 120 when the steaks are removed, it will continue cooking about five degrees even after removed from the oven—so there is no need to put it back in the oven.
