Legend has it that the name "sirloin" was coined by King James I of England, when he knighted this amazing cut of beef at a dinner in Hoghton tower, effectively making it a "Sir Loin." Whether you believe that or not, you can do justice to that legend with this delicious and nutritious recipe.
In the morning, marinate your favorite cut of beef steak—sirloin, rib, New York strip, etc.—with a mixture of grated garlic, lemon juice or wine, Dijon mustard and salt. Place in refrigerator until ready to grill or fry for dinner.
Bring steak to room temperature before cooking. Pan-fry steak in hot skillet in butter (if it contains a strip of fat, sear this first to release some fat) or grill. Cook each side quickly, salt to taste, and remove from pan. Add fresh spinach, broccoli or other vegetables and sauté in butter (if grilling, sauté vegetables separately).
Serve with a side salad.
