Beef top sirloin steak recipes are a great way to incorporate a reasonable cut of steak, without sacrificing any flavor.
You don’t need a grill for this steak dinner, but you can still enjoy it outside!
How To Cook Top Sirloin Steak In The Oven
First, you’ll want to start off by marinating your sirloin steak. Here’s the recipe for my sirloin steak marinade.
TIP: It’s best to marinate them for 3 to 8 hours, but not any longer or they can get mushy.
Then, you’re going to heat up your cast iron grill pan. You want to get it really hot so that you can get a nice sear on your steaks.
After a quick sear, it’s time to finish them in the oven. I have full cooking times below, but it cooks quickly, so make sure you know how you want your steak cooked and that your thermometer is ready to go.
After they finish in the oven, let them rest for about 5 minutes.
TIP: Resting is super important! Don’t skip it. This allows the juices to soak into the meat, so they won’t all escape when you cut into your steak. It’s one of the best secrets to super juicy sirloin steak!
Now it’s time to dig into your perfectly-cooked steak. Yum!
How Long Does It Take To Cook Steak In The Oven At 400?
If you’re wondering how long to cook steak in oven at 400 degrees F, I’ve got your answer, but it’s going to depend a little on how you like your steak cooked. After a quick sear on the stove, you’ll let the steak finish in the oven at 400 degrees F. For a 1.5-inch thick steak, it usually takes about:
- Rare: 2 minutes (cook to 120 degrees F)
- Medium Rare: 3 minutes (cook to 130 degrees F)
- Medium: 4 minutes (cook to 140 degrees F)
- Medium-well: 5 minutes (cook to 150 degrees F)
- Well-done: 6 minutes (cook to 160 degrees F)
Note: Steak temperature will increase by an additional 5 degrees when resting.
How Do You Cook A Top Sirloin Steak Without A Grill?
It’s easy (and delicious!) to cook a top sirloin steak without a grill. With my fool-proof oven method, you just need to sear it on the stove and then transfer it into the oven to finish cooking.
It’s similar to my filet mignon recipe and it’s my favorite way to cook steaks. I actually prefer it over grilling!
Can You Make Top Sirloin Steak Recipe Ahead?
No, unfortunately it’s just not recommended to make top sirloin steak ahead of time. The problem arises when trying to serve the steak hot. If it’s already cooked, you’ll need to re-heat it which means you could easily over-cook it.
The cooking time is relatively quick, so simply wait to cook the steak until you’re ready to eat! If you have leftover steak, I recommend quickly searing it in a hot skillet to warm it up.
