Grilled Sirloin Steak with Herbs


The delicious recipe is courtesy of Alice Waters and can be found in her cookbook, "The Art of Simple Food."


  • 3 tablespoons mixed chopped herbs, such as rosemary, thyme, oregano, or marjoram

  • 1 ½ teaspoons coarse salt

  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 grass-fed top sirloin steak (20 ounces and 1 ½ inches thick), trimmed leaving ¼ inch of fat


  1. In a small bowl, mix together herbs, salt, and pepper. Rub herb mixture onto steak and place in a shallow dish. Drizzle steak with olive oil and let stand at room temperature for 1 hour.

  2. Preheat, clean, and oil a grill or grill pan over high heat. Place steak on grill pan and cook 3 minutes. Rotate steak 110 degrees to make crosshatching grill marks, if desired, and continue cooking an additional 2 to 3 minutes. Turn and continue cooking 2 to 5 minutes more for a rare steak and 4 to 7 minutes for medium-rare.

  3. Transfer steak to a cutting board and let stand 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
