As easy as it is to skip the butter/parsley addition, DON'T! It was too hot to bbq outside so I used my grill pan. I only made 1 lb of sirloin for the three of us (which is normally fine) and at the end of dinner we were all looking at the serving platter longing for more. I served this with sauteed crimini mushrooms and roasted asparagus. Just do it as it is written and all will be excellent with your steak!

Pretty impressive. Sirloin isn't my favorite steak-cut, but this marinade makes the meat tender and delicious without overpowering flavors. I'll bet those who say they don't like marinated meat would like this recipe. I used lime juice instead of lemon, and Mrs. Dash Garlic & Herb seasoning for the minced garlic. This recipe is a definite "keeper," and I'm going to experiment with other less-tender cuts of beef like flank steak or round steak. Thank you, Dropbear, for this great recipe. :)

I tried this recipe on two 1.5 lb sirloin steaks. I substituted the 1/4 c minced onion with 1/8 c granulated onion (not onion powder). I wasn't sure what the substitution ratio should be, but the marinade started getting thick so any more than that would not have worked. I tasted the marinade before pouring it over the beef - delish! I marinated for a little over 2 hours, then broiled 6 minutes on one side, flipped and broiled 5 minutes on the other. I let the steaks rest for about 15 minutes while I prepared the rest of the meal, then sliced against the grain. The meat was tender and flavorful and a perfect medium rare. Served with a steamed broccoli-cauliflower medley and sweet potato fries. Dinner was a big hit. Thank you, Dropbear!
