How to Cook Sirloin Steak on the BarbecueBefore grilling sirloin steak it is important that your top sirloin steaks be at room temperature to avoid charring the outside while waiting for the inside to cook.
Preheat grill to high heat (600 - 800 degrees F). You know the grill is ready when you can place your hand a few inches above the open grill grate for only 1 - 2 seconds before pulling away. Keep your grill at this temperature for at least 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together the sirloin steak marinade recipe ingredients (softened butter, minced garlic, garlic powder, and dried parsley). Set aside.
Rub salt and pepper (to taste) on both sides of steaks.
Lightly oil grate and grill sirloin steaks, covered, to preferred doneness. To preserve juices do not use a fork. Use tongs or a spatula to turn top sirloin steaks (just once) midway through grilling. Have a sprayer handy to tame flare-ups.
