How to Cook Bottom Sirloin Steak

Save

Sirloin is a cut of steak from the upper hip of a cow. The boneless cut of steak has a firm texture with good flavor and can be cooked in a pan, broiler or grill. Bottom sirloin steak may also be referred to as tri-tip, bell tip and ball tip. Select a well-trimmed cut that is not overly dark.

Things You'll Need

  • Zip-close bag
  • Optional seasonings (onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, brown sugar and paprika)
  • Frying pan
  • Spatula or grilling fork
  • Oil

Seasoning

  • Create a rub out of salt, pepper and the following optional ingredients: onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, brown sugar and paprika.

  • Use a zip-close bag to shake the rub so the seasonings are evenly mixed.

  • Refrigerate and allow the steak to sit in the seasoning for 2 to 24 hours.

Stove-top

  • Add cooking oil to a hot pan on the stove.

  • Add the meat and cook it to your desired temperature, while timing the steak to only be flipped over once.

  • Flip the steak onto the uncooked side and continue to cook it to your desired doneness.

Oven

Grill

  • Preheat the grill and spray oil on the cooking surface to prevent the meat from sticking to the grill.

  • Place the steak on the grill and cook for 5 to 8 minutes on each side, depending on the size and thickness of the steak. As a general guideline, you should cook the steak 5minutes on each side for rare, 7 minutes on each side for medium rare to medium and 8 minutes for medium well to well done.

  • Move the steak to a plate and serve.

Tips & Warnings

  • Bottom sirloin cooks very fast because it is a boneless cut.
