Grilled Sirloin Steak with Pepper and Caper Salsa

With the end of summer fast approaching, I’ve come to a conclusion.  I haven’t been cooking.  Or baking.  Or doing anything in the kitchen that requires more than opening the freezer and pulling out a Dreamsicle.  I haven’t even baked for events.  Usually I always make something for Fourth of July, but this year I went to my party with only a bottle of wine.  It was a low moment for me.

There’s something about the summer that has just taken away my desire to cook.  I think it’s that on the days I work I come home and the last thing I want to do is turn on the stove.  Then on my days off, either my mom cooks or I have leftovers from the previous day.  There isn’t a need to cook, and because of that I simply haven’t.   Which, might I say, has made a food blog a little tricky.

Luckily, I have my old blog that I can pull recipes from during these cooking dry spells.  This recipe is one that I made last year and absolutely loved.  This post is as much for me as all of you, because I have to admit that I completely forgot I made this until I went through my old blog looking for something to share.  I’m glad I rediscovered it, because if memory serves me correctly it was a pretty tasty dinner.

A quickly seared sirloin steak is paired with a bright and acidic pepper salsa.  Using jarred roasted peppers, this meal comes together in twenty minutes.  Can’t complain about that!

Grilled Sirloin Steak with Pepper and Caper Salsa

Ingredients:

4 sirloin steaks
1 jar roasted red peppers, drained
1 jar roasted yellow peppers, drained
3 tbsp olive oil
3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
3 tbsp fresh parsley
1/4 cup capers
salt/pepper

Directions:

Whisk together the olive oil, balsamic, capers and parsley.  Add the peppers and stir to combine.  Set aside.

Heat a grill pan on the stovetop.  Season the steaks on both sides with salt and pepper.  Grill the steaks 4-6 minutes on each side for medium rare.  Let cool for 5 minutes.  Thinly slice the steak and top with pepper.
