Brazilian Sirloin Steak

My husband and I LOVE to go out to eat at those Brazilian steakhouses. Any place they bring out endless rounds of meat straight from the fire to your plate is a winner to us. It’s like an endless supply of all of the tasty meat treats you could possibly imagine! All you have to do is sit there and leave your little table marker to green, which means, “keep bringing all of the meats!”

Our favorite dish at the Brazilian steakhouses is the sirloin steak basted in a sweet and savory garlic marinade and roasted in a rotisserie. If you’ve ever been to a similar Brazilian restaurant, you’ll love this recipe for Brazilian sirloin steak.

Brazilian Steak Marinade

Here’s what you’ll need for this delicious garlic Brazilian steak marinade:

  • Fresh parsley
  • Fresh cilantro
  • Avocado oil
  • Water
  • Lime juice
  • Minced garlic
  • Kosher salt
  • Black pepper
  • Crushed red pepper flakes

When you are ready to make the Brazilian steaks, combine all ingredients in a gallon-sized zip-top bag, reserving 2 Tablespoons of the marinade for later use. Add the sirloin steak to the bag and marinate on the counter for 30 minutes while they come to room temperature.

How to Make Garlic Brazilian Steak

We actually have a rotisserie attachment for our gas grill at home and I LOVED the excuse to bust it out, but if you don’t have one, no stress! Simply cube the sirloin steaks when you remove them from the marinade and thread them onto individual kebab skewers.

You want HIGH direct heat for this recipe initially, this will give the exterior of the steak a nice crusty exterior For the last 5 minutes of cooking, move the steaks off of the direct heat and baste with a little of the remaining marinade that is amped up with additional garlic. These kebabs will make your tongue tingle in the most amazing way possible.

Servings4 people

Ingredients
 

  • 2 pounds sirloin steak

Garlic Brazilian Steak Marinade

  • ¼ cup fresh parsley
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro
  • ¼ cup avocado oil
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 Tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 Tablespoons freshly minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Instructions
 

  • Marinade the steak. Combine the ingredients for the marinade in a small bowl. Pour the marinade over the sirloin steak in a large gallon zip-top bag, reserving 2 Tablespoons of the marinade for later use. Allow the steaks to marinate on the counter for 30 minutes while they come to room temperature.
  • Preheat the grill. While the steaks are marinating, fire up the grill. Preheat the grill and assemble your rotisserie attachment. If you aren't using a rotisserie, prepare your grill for 2-zone cooking with a high heat side and a low heat side.
  • Prep the steak. Remove the steak from the marinade and shake off any excess. Thread the steaks onto the rotisserie spit. If you are using kebabs, dice the steak into cubes and thread onto the skewers.
  • Grill the Brazilian steak. Place the steak on the rotisserie or high heat side of your grill. Cook, turning frequently, until the internal temperature reaches 120 degrees F (about 8-10 minutes on the grill, 30-45 on the rotisserie). Use a basting brush to coat the steak with the reserved marinade. Move the kebabs to the low heat side of your grill or continue to cook on the rotisserie for an additional 5 minutes or until your steaks reach your desired temperature. 125 degrees F for rare, 135-140 for medium, and 150 for medium well.
  • Rest, slice, and serve. Remove the steaks from the grill and allow to rest for several minutes before slicing from the skewers to serve.
