Top sirloin, sliced in half to make 2 thin filets ½ pound (454 grams)
Barbecue sauce ¼ cup (60 milliliters)


Directions
  1. Brush barbecue sauce over the steak filets and let sit at room temperature for 15-20 minutes, until ready to grill.

Side Suggestions: Hot Potato Salad Over Argula
Wash and scrub 6 baby Yukon gold potatoes (or 2 regular Yukon gold potatoes). Bring to boil in a medium pot filled with water. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes (30-45 minutes if using larger potatoes) until tender when pricked with a fork. Place potatoes in a bowl and slice into big chunks, leaving skin on. In a separate bowl, whisk together 4 teaspoons (20 milliliters) canola oil, 2 teaspoons (10 milliliters) white balsamic vinegar (or white wine vinegar), ¼ teaspoon (1.25 milliliters) salt, and freshly ground pepper to taste. Add in ½ chopped jalapeno and pour dressing over the sliced potatoes. Serve potato salad over a bed of arugula, about 1 cup per person.
