Sirloin steak contains a perfect percentage of fat that will literally make the meat melt in your mouth, creating a true explosion of flavors for your palate. This bone-free cut of meat is also usually very affordable and large enough to feed the whole family. It can also be cooked in multiple ways. Read on to find out how to choose a sirloin steak and how to cook it using one of the most popular methods.
Cut the sirloin and create the desired portions. Use a plastic cutting board, rather than a wooden one, to avoid cross-contamination of food.
Heat a cast-iron skillet using medium-high heat. Add 1-2 teaspoons (5-10 ml) of extra virgin olive oil. Wait until the oil is hot, but don't let it reach the point of smoke, which indicates that it is burning.
Arrange the steaks in the center of the pan. Cook them for 15 seconds, and then flip them over to the other side using kitchen tongs. You will get a great crunchy crust on both sides.
When cooked, remove the steaks from the pot and let them rest for about 3 minutes. In this way, the juices can be redistributed in the fibers of the meat making it juicy and tasty.
Serve the steaks hot.
