There are several tips for grilling sirloin steak that will help to make the meat more flavorful when grilled correctly. One tip is to allow the steak to come up to room temperature prior to grilling. Other tips for grilling sirloin steak include using a marinade, cooking on high heat and allowing the meat to rest before serving. It is also a good idea to preheat and lubricate the grill grate before grilling sirloin steak. Other tips include turning the steak to get the proper grill marks, slicing the steak thin and serving the steak with a choice of potato or salad.

Many people enjoy a nice cut of meat on the barbecue grill, and sirloin steak is a common choice. There are several tips that aid in grilling flavorful steaks, and they begin with allowing the steaks to rise to room temperature prior to placing the cuts on the grill. By allowing the steak to come up to temperature, cooking time is reduced by several minutes on a thick steak. Another tip when grilling sirloin steak is to place the meat in a pan and cover it with a strong marinade. A mix of garlic, horseradish and olive oil is one blend for marinating sirloin steak.


A tip to increase the flavor when grilling sirloin steak is to mix a small amount of the marinade and use it to baste the meat as it cooks. This will typically result in a flavorful coating that is absorbed into the cooked meat. In order to make proper grill marks on the meat, it should be placed on a very hot and lubricated grill. Regardless of the material the grill grates are made from, lubricating the hot grill with olive oil or meat fat prior to placing the meat on the grill will result in better grill marks as well as less sticking of the steak to the grate.

Perhaps the most important tip for grilling sirloin steak is to remove the steak from the grill and allow it to rest for five to 10 minutes prior to serving or carving. By allowing the steak to rest after it comes off the grill, the inner juices are permitted to return from the center of the steak. This makes for a juicy cut of meat from the edges to the center. Another tip when grilling sirloin steak is to remove it slightly prior to the meat reaching the desired level of doneness. The meat will continue to cook for a short period after it is removed from the grill, creating a finished product as it rests.
