Restaurant-Style Marinated Sirloin Steaks

Here's a marinade that adds flavor and tenderness to lean top sirloin.


  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup light soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup very finely chopped onion, add coarsely chopped onion to small food processor, if you have one, and pulse until almost pureed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, optional
  • 1 pinch cayenne red pepper
  • 4  top sirloin individual steaks, trimmed of visible fat (about 5 ounces each)


Step 1
In an 8-cup measure, whisk together balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, honey, olive oil, pepper, Worcestershire, onion, salt (if desired), and cayenne.
Step 2
Place steaks in a shallow glass dish and cover with the marinade. Turn to coat both sides well. Cover and marinate in refrigerator for up to two days.
Step 3
Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Lightly coat the grill grate with canola cooking spray or oil. Add steaks and grill 5-7 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the steak and the desired doneness. Throw away any leftover marinade (because it has raw meat juices in it).
