If you were to ask Justin, he would tell you that one of his favorite things for dinner is steak. But I’m not much of a red meat person, and the boys don’t eat it, so we don’t have steak often. For me to eat it, I need a lot of flavor. We made this dijon sauce as a salad dressing recently, and I thought it would be great on the steak as well.

We prefer Dijon mustard over other types of mustard. It isn’t as strong, but still adds a lot of flavor to anything it’s in.

Step by Step

Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb sirloin tender steak
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 cup green onion, sliced
  • 1 tsp thyme, dried
  • 1/2 cup sherry cooking wine
  • 3 cups beef broth
  • 2 tbsp butter, unsalted
  • 1 tbsp parsley, dried
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 450F and place a rimmed baking sheet in the oven while it heats.

Heat 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the steak and sprinkle with 1 1/4 tsp salt and 1 1/4 tsp pepper. Cook the steaks, flipping at least once, for about 3-4 minutes on each side, until the edges start to brown (meat will not be cooked through).

Top the cooked steak with the dijon sauce and serve immediately.

Leftovers

If you have any leftover steak with dijon sauce (never when my husband is around!), save it in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Reheat either in a skillet or on a grill. Remember, the steak will cook further no matter how you reheat it.

Sirloin Steak with Dijon Sauce FAQs

What’s the difference between yellow mustard and dijon mustard?

Dijon mustard is creamier, paler, and has less vinegar than yellow mustard. It also has a bit of a spicier flavor.

Can I use yellow mustard instead of dijon mustard?

You can certainly sub out a different type of mustard. I have not personally tried it, though, so can’t attest to the flavor. It may also change the consistency slightly. I would reduce the amount of white wine vinegar if you use yellow mustard since it already has more vinegar in it.

Does the cut of the steak really matter?

Some would say yes, others would say no. It depends on what you personally prefer. I actually lean towards a cheaper cut of steak because I like it lean and the more expensive cuts have the fat marbled in.

What is sirloin steak?

The sirloin cut is less tender than the top loin but tends to have more flavor than other cuts. It is part of the hindquarters of a cow.
