Barbecued Grilled Steak

Grilled Steak

This was a cut called a ‘faux filet’ – I think it’s a sirloin. Use any steak suitable for your budget and for grilling. If you slice a steak at an angle, even a tougher cut is delicious – and they usually have more flavor!


  • 16oz (500gr) sirloin or top round (suitable for grilling)
  • 2 tbs ketchup
  • 2 tbs Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbs sherry wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tbs olive oil


  • Combine ketchup, Worcestershire, vinegar, oil, garlic and oregano. 
  • Spoon on both sides of steak(s) and allow to marinate for 15 – 30 minutes.
  • Cook steak on barbecue grill over direct heat for 5 – 9 minutes per side – or until done – 140F (60C) for rare.
  • Time depends on thickness. Use a meat thermometer or by slicing into center and looking. 
  • When done, remove from heat and let rest for 5 minutes. 
  • Slice at an angle about 1/2 inch thick (1.25cm) and serve.


Cooking a steak properly can be a challenge as thickness, cut, and heat of the grill all make a difference in cooking time. I recommend and instant read thermometer.
