Marinated Sirloin Steak with Mushrooms

I love sirloin steak and it was on special offer this week at the supermarket. It was the thin cut sirloin, so needed a little more care. I looked on the web for a marinade, yes I do have shelves full of cookery books and folders full of recipes, but searching is much easier online!

I found 'Carol's Completely Fabulous Steak Marinade' as the basis of recipe for which I had all the appropriate ingredients, well almost!

2 tbsp fresh squeezed lime juice (I had some dried up limes left over from Christmas)
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce ( oh dear only about a teaspoon left, never mind bung it in)
2 tbsp Balsamic vinegar
1 tsp minced garlic ( couple of cloves of garlic crushed)
2 tblsp olive oil

Put the whole steaks in a plastic bag, seal and leave in the fridge for 8 - 24 hours.
When ready to cook, take the meat out of the frdige, drain the marinade (I kept it, more later) and let meat come to room temperature. Preheat your gril to high, put the steak in/on the grill and cook to your own taste. As the steak I used was think it only took a few minutes.

I served my steak, cut into strips with baked potatoes and mushrooms sauted in butter and finished with the marinade, make sure you cook it out for a good 5 minutes as it has had raw meat in it.
I have to say, given the minimum effort involved, it tasted delicious.


  1. Oooh, delicious. Lime juice is a great compliment to beef, as are mushrooms! Yummy!

  2. Looks very delicious. The lime and balsamic vinegar surely add beautiful flavour to this dish.....mmmm. Thanks for sharing.

  5. I love to marinade beef...I am going to try the lime with my next lot - sounds inspired!

  6. Oooooh this looks delicious... sirloin steak is now on my shopping list for next week; thanks for the recipe! :)

  7. That's a lovely steak looks great I just wish I had some just about now. I'm so hungry and looking at the steak does not help.
