Recipe for The Best Teppanyaki Sirloin Steak with Garlic

Today we want to share a delicious sirloin steak with garlic recipe you can prepare in your own teppanyaki grill at home, that will make you forget you’re at home.

The carefully crafted mix will make you feel like you’re at a restaurant enjoying the classiest meal ever. So let’s dive right in.

Teppanyaki goodness

As you probably already know, teppanyaki is a Japanese cooking style that requires the use of a “teppan” (which is a flat iron griddle) to “yaki” (that is to grill, fry or broil your food).

And why should you consider using a Teppanyaki instead of traditional cooking? Delicious, flavorful goodness. That’s it.

I think we all love asian cuisine for its unique flavor without all the unhealthy stuff and that’s what Teppanyaki is all about when cooking it on your stovetop.

Dishes made using this grill are always low in fat and very light since they don’t use a lot of oil to achieve tasty results.

Considerations to achieve the best grilled sirloin steak

You will need to set up your grill about 15 minutes before you start grilling sirloin steak. Make sure your grill plates are clean in order to prevent your meat cuts from sticking to the grill.

Preheat the grill in order to sear and crisp the edges. To do this you will need your grill to be very hot (somewhere around 450° F), just slowly wave your hand a couple inches above your grill to locate the best hot areas.

Using tongs (we’ve got some excellent ones in our buying guide), dip a paper towel in a bit of oil and grease your plates before you start grilling. This will make the process easier, but as you will see below we won’t be using too much.

At the same time when you prep your grill (or before if you want to be ready just in time), take your steaks out and let them rest for 15 minutes at room temperature.

Afterwards, pat them dry with another paper towel. This will help ensure the perfect sear.

You can season your sirloin steak as you prefer. Feel free to use salt and pepper, chili powder, garlic powder, paprika or cumin. You can also use the ready to go marinade powders out there.

For this recipe in particular, salt and pepper is enough since our flavor will rest on the garlic butter mix, but feel free to customize it to taste.

We’ll avoid using a barbecue fork in this recipe since piercing the steak would release those delicious juices. So instead, we’ll opt for tongs to flip the meat once while it’s grilling.

This will help form the delicious crust we’re after. Once you can easily lift them off the grill, they’re ready!

Take them off the grill and generously add the garlic butter mix. Not only will you have a delicious steak flavored to your liking but you will also have tasty garlic butter infusing them with much more flavor.

Before you start slicing, make sure to let the steak rest for about 5 minutes so it can absorb the garlic and all the juiciness stays within it.

How to know how done your steak is:

We want you to have the best sirloin steak ever, so we want to share some tips on knowing when your steak is done just how you prefer it:

  • To get a rare steak, the internal temperature will have to be about 140° F. You can be sure because the texture will be soft, and it will retain an indent when you press it.
  • To get a medium-rare steak, the internal temperature will have to be about 145° F. You will notice a soft texture but with some added springy-ness.
  • To get a medium steak, the internal temperature will have to be about 160° F. You should notice the springy feel is now stronger since any indents to the meat will bounce back up fast.
  • To get a well done steak, the internal temperature will have to be about 170° F. You will notice the meat is firm.
