“I bought a Top Sirloin Steak at my local store. It was much thinner than I usually like, so I got creative. First, I usually use at least a 1" thick steak, this was 1/2 inch at best. Second, I always season, then let steak warm to room temp, (takes about 2 hours) then I either grill or broil. I am looking at this sad skinny steak, I need to serve it in about 30 minutes, I'm thinking no way is this going to be good. Then Inspiration struck. I seasoned the steak with Lawry's Pepper Seasoned Salt, and garlic powder. BELIEVE it or not, I then stuck it in the Mircowave for 15 sec on each side, and left it in Mirco for about 30 min. Then I "fried" it in olive oil and butter. This just may have been the best steak I have ever eaten. Red rare in the middle, and juicier than I could have ever hoped for. Please Try This.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Unwrap your fresh, cold from the store or refrigerator, steak.
  2. Season with Pepper seasoning salt and garlic powder to taste.
  3. Put in Microwave oven for 15 seconds, turn over and Microwave for 15 seconds on the other side. Leave in Microwave for 30 minutes.
  4. Warm Olive Oil in a skillet, add butter. Heat until butter is frothy and just barely beginning to brown.
  5. Add Steak and cook a bare 4 minutes per side for rare. (I would not try this if you don't like rare steak) I don't know what 3 extra minutes would do.
  6. Remove Steak to plate and put bread quarters on plate. Drizzle pan drippings over steak and bread.
  7. I serve this with Rosemary Potatoes, and Tomatoes Rockefeller.
  8. (I'll post the Rosemary Potatoes recipe and the recipe for "Tomatoes Rockefeller" in a few minutes.).
