Do you ever come home from work and think, “How in the world am I going to make an entire dinner? I’m hungry NOW!” With a little planning and a few easy ingredients, you can have something ready in just a few minutes. I’ve been buying meat in bulk lately and freezing the extra, because the stores around here like to “bundle” for cheaper prices. I knew yesterday that I would want tonight to be a steak night, so I threw a huge sirloin in the meat drawer of the fridge before going to bed last night.
This is one of my go-to combinations for seasoning steak when I’m in a hurry. Keep these things in your fridge and they will work as a great marinade.
- One 2 1/2 pound sirloin steak (or whatever cut of steak you prefer), pounded slightly to tenderize
- 3 tablesoons dijon mustard
- 2 tablespoons minced garlic
- many generous dashes of Frank’s Ret Hot sauce
Preheat your grill to high heat. Meanwhile, mix marinade ingredients in a large, flat dish. (It should be an almost paste-like consistency). Coat the steak with the marinade, and allow it to soak in the flavors while the grill finishes preheating. Grill until it’s done the way you like it!
Feel free to adjust the amounts in the marinade to suit your tastes. Enjoy!
