Ingredients
  

  • 1 pound sirloin steak
  • ¼ cup red wine
  • 4 inch sprig of rosemary
  • 2 garlic cloves chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon spicy mustard I like English mustard here but any will do
  • Salt and pepper

Instructions
 

  • Combine the wine, rosemary, chopped garlic, olive oil and mustard in a gallon freezer bag or casserole dish. Wisk together to distribute the mustard, add the steak, sprinkle with salt and pepper and marinate for one hour.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees, or your barbeque to medium heat.
  • FOR OVEN COOKING- Heat a ridged cast iron pan on medium high, place steak on and grill each side for 5-6 minutes. Place the pan in the oven for 15 minutes, less or not at all if it’s a thin cut. This will give you a medium cooked steak.
  • FOR BARBEQUE GRILLING- Place the steak on the barbeque 5-7 minutes on each side keeping the lid closed. The trick it to cook the steaks on a medium heat which keeps the inside tender, and the outside slightly charred. This will give you a medium cooked steak.
  • When the steak is done don’t cut into it for 10 minutes, allowing it to rest will result in a tender and juicy cut of meat. Slice thinly against the grain and place on a pretty plate, serve with wine.

Ingredients
  

Steak:

  • 1 lb Top Sirloin Steak cut into 4 equal parts
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • ½ tsp Cayenne Powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt

Salad:

  • 2 cups Frozen Corn Kernels
  • 1 can of Black Beans drained and rinsed
  • ½ cup chopped Artichoke Hearts
  • 2 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 tbsp good Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tbsp Dried Basil
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • At least two hours before or the night before mix the seasonings for the steak together, rub on both sides of the steak, wrap in cling wrap and place in the fridge.
  • An hour before cooking take out of fridge and get to room temp and slice into 4 oz servings.
  • In a large bowl combine the corn, beans and the artichokes, in a small bowl combine the rest of the ingredients for the dressing and whisk, pour onto the corn and bean mixture and toss well let sit out for an hour before serving to marry the flavors and get to room temp. You can make several hours before serving and keep in the fridge also.
  • Time to BBQ up the steak, for medium cooked steaks pre heat the BBQ on medium heat for 10 minutes.
  • Put the steaks on the BBQ 5-7 minutes on each side keeping the lid closed. The trick it to cook the steaks on a medium heat which keeps the inside tender, and the outside slightly charred. This is a cheaper, leaner cut of meat so you don’t want to cook it on high heat it will make it tough.
  • Remove steaks from heat and let them sit for 10 minutes before serving, this way they remain juicy and tender.

Servings 2 servings
Calories 310 kcal

Equipment

  • Plastic wrap
  • Kitchen Twine
  • Foil

Ingredients
  

  • 2 to p round steaks- 5 ounce each
  • ¼ cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled goat cheese
  • ¼ cup frozen corn kernels
  • 1 garlic clove finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons dried or fresh chopped parsley
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

Instructions
 

  • Pre-heat Barbeque to medium low with the lid closed. On a clean surface lay out a 2 foot piece of plastic wrap, place one steak in the middle of the plastic wrap and cover with a second two foot piece of plastic wrap.
  • With a Meat Tenderizer or Rolling Pin beat the steak, really! Tenderize -or beat- it until it’s half the thickness and into a rectangle. This will make the steak tender and give us the ability to roll it up. Move steak to a clean surface and work on the second steak until it’s also flat and tender.
  • In a bowl combine Panko breadcrumbs, cheese, corn, garlic and parsley.
  • Using a fork crumble everything together.
  • Salt and pepper the steaks on both sides, place both steaks on a cutting board lengthwise. Place two 1 foot sections of kitchen twine under each steak, one ½ an inch from the top and one ½ from the bottom.
  • Divide the goat cheese Panko mixture and mound in the middle of each steak, then gently push down keeping away from the top and bottom ending where the kitchen twine is.
  • Gently roll up then tie the strings and cut off any access. Mixture that has fallen out can be gently pushed back in.
  • Coat each steak with olive oil and place on the medium low barbecue for 20-30 minutes, you can also cook on the stove top in a grill pan.
  • Turn every 5 minutes to brown and cook all sides, keep lid closed.
  • When the cheese starts to melt in the center it should be done.
  • Move to a plate and let sit for 10 minutes, cover loosely with foil to keep in heat. Cut off strings and serve
