Top Sirloin Steaks with Quick Garlic Pan Sauce

Cooking steaks on the stove allows you to make delicious quick pan sauces like this one.

  • 4 (6-ounce) top sirloin steaks
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Season steaks with salt and pepper

Heat a large, heavy-bottomed skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil and when hot, but not smoking, carefully add steaks. Cook on both sides, turning once, until desired doneness is reached (internal temperature of 140°F for medium). Remove steaks and hold warm.

Add garlic to pan and sauté until golden and fragrant, about 1 minute. Add broth, scraping the pan to remove any browned bits. Simmer until sauce reduces by half, about 4 minutes. Finish with butter, swirling into sauce until slightly thickened. Pour over steaks and serve.

Makes 4 servings.
