Grilled Sirloin Steaks are perfect for outdoor grilling on a budget. During the summer months here in Texas our family does a lot of grilling out on the patio because it’s quick and easy, and I don’t have to heat up the kitchen! My family loves steak, especially thick cut Ribeyes, but it’s not always in the budget, so for a less expensive steak night, I will grill sirloin steaks. They are a much tougher cut of meat, but if you grill it right, they can be tender, juicy and delicious. To amp up the flavor, I love to serve these steaks with Chimicurri sauce.
Chimichurri sauce is a garlicky tangy sauce from Argentina. I like it on fish, chicken, beef, pasta and vegetables. I can practically put it on anything edible! It also works great as a marinade and baste while grilling. You could also add it to softened butter for an awesome compound butter!
For this recipe, I rub the steaks on both sides with chimichurri and let them sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes before grilling.
- 1 cup lightly packed chopped parsley ideally, flat leaf "Italian" parsley
- 3 to 5 cloves garlic minced
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon chili pepper flakes
- 2 tablespoons fresh oregano leaves optional
- 2 tablespoons shallot or onion minced
- 3/4 cup vegetable or olive oil
- 3 tablespoons sherry wine vinegar or red wine vinegar
- 3 tablespoons lemon juice
- Place all chimichurri sauce ingredients in a blender or food processor and pulse until well chopped, but not pureed. Reserve. *If not using right away, store in an airtight container in the refrigerate. Allow mixture to come to room temperature before using.

Sirloin is actually one of my favorite cuts. The addition of chimichurri sounds wonderful.
