The Best Sirloin Steak Marinades

Sirloin steak marinates really well and there are a lot of different easy steak marinades you can use for it. The following recipe is quite simple and mixes the flavors of onion, garlic, and lemon juice with some Worcestershire sauce to really boost the flavor of the sirloin steak. Sirloin is one of the more flavorful cuts of beef. It is not as tender as cuts like filet mignon, but it is tastier, which is the reason a lot of steak-lovers prefer it. It is also slightly cheaper than those super-tender cuts.

This marinade is easy to prepare and, like with most of them, you simply have to combine the ingredients, add the meat, and let it soak for a couple of hours. There is nothing more to marinating meat than that, which is why marinating is suitable for all home cooks, regardless of skill level. If you mix the marinade properly and leave the steak in there for the right amount of time, there is nothing that can go wrong.

When the steak is done, it is served with homemade parsley butter for maximum juiciness and flavor. Sirloin steak has plenty of flavor so this is one of the mildest sirloin steak marinades and it is meant to enhance the existing steak taste rather than overpower it. This steak goes equally well with potatoes, rice, or French fries.

Hello, I'm Christine. Thanks for dropping by and welcome to Amazing Sauces. Food is a very important part of our family's lives, and I find a homemade sauce often finishes a dish perfectly. Whether you are making something with chicken, beef, pork, vegetables, an appetizer, or even a dessert recipe, a sauce is often the ideal finishing touch.

You will find many sauce recipes here, all conveniently in one place, from the classics like tomato sauce, béchamel sauce and cheese sauce, to gravies, marinades, and unusual ideas for sauces too like ginger-plum sauce or gorgonzola sauce.

Some sauces can be drizzled over the meal, while others are best served on the side. Some will work as a dip or sauce, while others are great for basting, marinating or adding a splash of color to a recipe. Try our creamy gravies with your breakfast, one of our international steak marinades for a sophisticated spin on dinner, or learn how to make a classic béarnaise or rich red wine sauce to complement your dish.
