My dad wants me to make a very thick 1lb. sirloin steak. He said to cut it into 3 prices for him, me and mom. Does anybody have any ideas for a braised recipe for this cut of meat?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
why would you braise a nice cut steak like that? Braises are usually for tougher parts of the animal that need a long time to break down tissue...a good steak won't be tough. I'd sear it in a cast iron on the highest possible heat for a few minutes each side until browned then pop it in the oven for a few minutes until cooked (medium rare of course). let it sit then slice it in three.
Lol omg Because I like to experiment with different types of cooking styles with different meats. XD Simple as. But as for the searing part it sounds like a good idea as long as I don't overcook it.

Here is a wonderful recipe for a braised sirloin:
If yours is boneless, I'd still cook it in one piece and then slice to serve.
Sounds great, but that's not a true braise...

I also tend to grill or sear/roast sirloin steak, but no harm in experimenting with braising. The only thing I'd caution is that it's a pretty lean cut, so it might tend to get tough when long cooked - sort of the opposite of what happens to well marbled cuts with more connective tissue.

I'd rather sear than braise too. If you decide to go with searing, here are some good tips. The recommended time for letting it sit, salted, is important. http://food52.com/blog...
This simple mustard butter is great. https://food52.com/recipes...

deedeelicious, you can use the mustard butter sauce on pretty much any steak cut
