  • Broil steak until done, more or less 7 to 10 minutes on each side. Cool and cut into 1 inch slices.

  • Trivia: We’ve used Sirloin as the main ingredient for this recipe. Did you know that “sirloin” has a story too? Some stories say that it was King Henry VIII who called it as “Sir Loin”. The king was fond of this thigh part and the term became famous in all regions and they called it sirloin steak. This steak is cut from the lower portion of the ribs, which continues onwards to the rump and the tenderloin. The muscles of this region are a bit exercised and hence, the sirloin steak is a tad bit tougher than the other premium steak, the filet mignon. In fact, the sirloin steak is the cheapest of the premium cuts of steak.
  • Trivia: Sirloin steaks are popular for family get-togethers and backyard barbeques because it provides big cuts and the cheapest of the premium steaks. It is cooked best for no more than medium rare.

Beef is a good source of vitamin B12 and vitamin B6, needed by the body to convert the potentially dangerous chemical homocysteine to benign molecules. It also reduces the risk of colon cancer because it is high in vitamin B12.
  • It is a good reservoir of selenium and zinc. The selenium present in lean beef is required for the beneficial purpose of glutathione enzymes, an antioxidant that deoxidizes the grimness of inflammatory conditions like asthma and rheumatoid arthritis.
  • It is a good source of zinc, which is useful for keeping the damage to blood vessel walls, which can lead to atherosclerosis and is also necessitated for the proper performance of immune system.
