Sirloin Steak with Garlic Bok Choy

You can use any cut of steak for this recipe, but sirloin is naturally lean and more afforable. It's delicious on its own with a bold beefy flavour and firm texture, also cooks well with marinades and sauces. Using beef broth and brandy to the pan sauce not only enhances the flavour but makes the sauce rich and creamy. If you don't want to use alcohol, then simply leave it out.
Sirloin is taken from the hip of the cow and tends to be slightly chewy as it's on the leaner side. I would suggest to get top sirloin, which is more tender and suitable for high heat pan searing and grilling, but be careful not to overcook them since the meat can start to turn tough and dry beyond medium.

  • 2x285 g Sirloin steak (or rump steak)
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 3 tbsp Tallow or ghee
  • 2 Garlic cloves, smashed
  • 20 g Herb butter
  • 100 ml Beef broth
  • 1 tbsp Brandy (or marsala)
  • 1 clove Garlic, minced
  • 300 g Bok choy, quartered
  • 50 g Frozen peas, thawed
  • Flat parsley, chopped
  1. Remove the steaks from the fridge about 30 minutes before you plan to cook, so they’re closer to room temperature. Pat the steaks dry with kitchen paper, and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons of tallow or ghee in a skillet over a high heat. Once it’s sizzling hot, carefully lay the steaks in the skillet and add in smashed garlic at the side. Cook steak for 2 minutes, so they get a nice brown crust. With a pair of tongs, turn the steak and cook for a further 1-2 minutes for rare. Cook 2 more minutes if you want medium. Transfer to a platter or cutting board and cover with a piece of foil. Allow the steak to rest for 5 minutes while you prepare the sauce and garlic vegetables.
  3. Deglaze the pan with brandy and beef broth and scrape at the bottom of the pan. Bring it to a boil. Lower the heat to medium and let it simmer for 2-3 minutes. Add in herb butter. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer the gravy to a bowl and keep warm.
  4. Add the remaining tallow in a skillet. Add in minced garlic, thawed peas and quartered bok choy. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Garnish the steak with some chopped parsley and serve with prepared garlic vegetables.

@Graciela Bacino Just heat up a bit of oil or fat in a skillet. Add in garlic and veggies that you like. Stir fry for a couple of mins. Simple and quick!

Love how you've made the bok choy, Angie! I usually make it with an Asian flavored sauce. I never considered making it with garlic and butter. Can't wait to try it this way!

SavoringTime in the Kitchen 9/7/21 18:44

Everything about this dish screams "Make Me!" We love an occasional grilled steak on the grill in the summer and the bok choy is such a refreshing side dish with it.

gluten Free A_Z Blog 13/7/21 05:56

I do love book Choy but normally I make it in soups. I'll have to try making it as a side dish. It looks delicious with the peas and garlic

Pattie @ Olla-Podrida 14/7/21 19:33

Seeing this makes me ask myself why I didn’t get some sirloin last week when they were on sale. I haven’t had beef in a long time, and this looks magnificent! I love baby bok choy, but never thought to pair it with a steak. It looks perfect here, and perfectly delicious.

tigerfish 15/7/21 15:31

You make preparing and cooking steak sound so easy! To me, cooking steak is intimidating, especially when I don't do high heat searing or grilling. I'm tempted to put the whole marinated steak directly into the oven - will that work? I know not perfect ...

Angie's Recipes 16/7/21 16:38

@tigerfishI am sure you can. You can check this out from Delish

Noob Cook 1/8/21 10:01

Nothing makes me happier than to cut into the steak and find it so perfectly red inside :)~~ You make the sirloin cut look really good and I love the touch of Brandy in the sauce.
