Juicy Grilled Steak

 Grilled Steak

Here is  an amazing recipe for a simple and delicious steak. It calls for 3 ingredients, yes 3 ingredients and take less than 8 minutes to cook.


1 lbs of steak
1 tablespoon of brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of pepper
1 sour orange
1 stove top grill

Cut sour orange in half and rub the steak. Rinse with 3 to 4 cups of really hot water and drain. In a medium size bowl add in steak, salt, pepper and brown sugar. Allow to marinade at room temperature for at least 30 minutes. Based on my experience, beef marinates better at room temperature.

Stove top grill should be at medium temperature. Beef doesn't take long to cook. Once the grill is at it's hottest point, place the individual steak on the grill. Do not flip too often.Turn the steak over after 4 minutes. Reserve the marinade for gravy.  Depending upon how you well you like your steak, it should take no more than 5 to 8 minutes to cook. Any extra time with over cook the steak.

F.Y.I. Allowing the steak to sit for a few minutes will allow the meat retain it's juices.



1 teaspoon of brown sugar
1/4 cup of onions (or more)
1 cup of beef broth (or water)
1/2 teaspoon of cornstarch or flour
2 teaspoons of butter
1 teaspoon of paprika
salt to taste
1/2 teaspoon of pepper
1 tablespoon of oil

In the same bowl the steak was marinating in add in beef broth and cornstarch. Whisk until all lumps have dissolved. In a small saucepan on medium temperature add in oil and saute the onions until clear then add in broth mixture, sugar, salt, paprika and pepper. Once this comes to a boil lower the temperature and stir in butter. Cover and allow to cook for 5 minutes and serve with steak.
