Salt & Pepper Sirloin


From EatingWell:  Summer 2004, The EatingWell Diabetes Cookbook (2005)

A simple grilled steak topped with tangy tomatillo salsa is a favorite of EatingWell's Food Editor, Jim Romanoff. Instead of serving a slab of steak, he likes to slice it and fan it on the plates. Not only is it more attractive this way, it is easier to control portion sizes.

4 servings | Active Time: 15 minutes | Total Time: 45 minutes



  1. Make Grilled Tomatillo Salsa.
  2. Preheat grill to high.
  3. Rub steak with oil; season both sides with salt and pepper. Lightly oil the grill rack (hold a piece of oil-soaked paper towel with tongs and rub it over the grate). Grill the steak until cooked to desired doneness, 4 to 6 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer it to a cutting board and let it rest for 5 minutes. Slice the steak thinly across the grain and serve with Grilled Tomatillo Salsa.
