Memorial Day is a great holiday for grilling. My personal memorial day favorite is thick, juicy steak. A lot of people don't cook steak because of the price or because they don't want to "mess it up." The following recipe is a great way to solve both of those problems.
Prep Time: 10 Min Cook Time: 15-40 minutes
Thick cut top sirloin steaks (usually the local grocers have these on display. They are usually about 8 inches across in an oval shape. Cut one in half to create two excellent steaks).
Chopped Garlic (I use the store bought, pre-chopped in olive oil)
Cola (any non-diet variety, you want the sugar to help create good char marks).
Cover the steaks in Worcestershire sauce and cola using a ratio of 4 parts cola to 1 part Worcestershire sauce. I prefer to do this in gallon freezer bags. Add one teaspoon of chopped garlic for every steak into the bag. Add the steaks and refrigerate for 1-4 hours.
Remove the steaks from the refrigerator for 30 minutes before you plan to grill them.
Light your grill, and if you can try to have a "hot spot" to sear the steaks and medium heat area to cook them.
Place steaks on platter and coat both sides with salt and black pepper. I give each steak of coat of olive oil cooking spray after seasoning them (this helps keep them from sticking to the grill and helps keep the seasoning on the meat)
Place the steaks on the "hot spot" of your grill for 2 minutes, then flip for an additional two minutes. After both sides are seared, move the steaks to the medium heat portion of your grill. Cook to your desired taste for the next 15-40 minutes (check out this great guide for getting your steak just the way you want).
Let the steaks rest for 5 minutes after removing from grill before serving/slicing. Enjoy!
