Sweet and Savory Sirloin Steak

My recipes are grain free, refined sugar free and many are dairy free. My lifestyle dietary eating habits have had to change drastically. I now on an uphill journey to reclaim my health. I suffer from autoimmune illnesses which include Hashimoto’s, Fibromyalgia, and Chronic Urticaria (hives). Perhaps you have just given up grains and refined sugar and are looking for recipes.

I write a minimum of one recipe a day, watermarking my photo’s and writing the intro. It is more time consuming than you would believe. Not to mention there are recipes I write and make it on my blog. Sometimes a recipe sounds better on paper or they might still need some tweaking, and some just don’t turn out as I thought they would.

I am always trying to figure out new ways to make the same old proteins, chicken, beef, pork, turkey, seafood and buffalo. I don’t usually purchase a lot of buffalo as it is expensive. Sometimes I think I am all out of inspiration and new ideas. But then some thought or something I see will inspire a whole new recipe.

Today I saw maple syrup and let it inspire me to make a new steak recipe. I had high hopes that it would be tasty. It exceeded my expectations. I don’t know if you know it by now or not but my favorite seasonings are probably onion powder and garlic powder. So, of course, these spices are in seasonings.

1 Tablespoon maple syrup

1 teaspoon garlic salt

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1/4 teaspoon thyme

1/8 teaspoon sage

1/2 teaspoon parsley

1/4 teaspoon lemon peel

1/8 teaspoon ginger

1 tablespoon butter

3 lbs of Sirloin steak

 

Preheat oven to broil. Combine all the ingredients except the butter. Rub the seasoning on both sides of the steak. Put an oven proof pan on the stove on medium heat with a teaspoon of avocado oil. When the pan is hot place your seasoned steaks inside a pan. Sear steaks on all sides. Once the steaks have been seared place a small amount of butter on each steak 1/8 – 1/4 teaspoon per steak. Place steaks inside the oven and cook 5 – 8 minutes per side. If too rare for you add a few more minutes. Remove pan from oven and allow to cool 15 -20 minutes. Remove steaks to a serving platter.

 

Pan Juice Topping

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

3 tablespoons beef broth

 

Add balsamic and beef broth and deglaze the pan. Using a spoon scrape off the brown bits often called a foundation. Use these pan drippings sauce and spoon on top of your steak. Then dip steak bites into the sauce and eat. Pictured is the steak with pan dripping sauce.
