    Sometimes you try a recipe and it’s love at first sight, and others, have elements you love, but it’s just not what you hoped for.

    The first time I made Ina Garten’s mustard-marinated flank steak, I fell in love with the flavor. I always thought flank steak was best suited for things like tacos and well, I still think it is. It was just too tough and it felt like a great marinade was wasted on a not so great steak.

    Last weekend we had family and friends over and I did a take 2 with top sirloin. It was everything I’d hoped it would be and more! This recipe is great for entertaining because the majority of the effort is in advance {I use that word very lightly}. The marinade takes just a few minutes and cook time is only 10 minutes hands on.

    Course Entree
    Servings 6

    Ingredients

    • 2.5 pounds steak {serves 5}
    • 1/3 c dry white wine {I used Sauvignon Blanc}
    • 1/3 c olive oil
    • 1/3 c stone ground mustard
    • pepper {I eliminated salt}
    • 2 shallots chopped
    • 1 Tsbp minced garlic
    • 2 Tbsp tarragon leaves chopped

    Instructions

    1. Place steaks in a glass or porcelain baking dish. Score the steaks with a crisscross pattern.
    2. Whisk wine, olive oil, mustard and pepper. Stir in shallots and garlic. Pour over steak, covering it.
    3. Scatter tarragon on top of steak.
    4. Cover dish and allow to marinate several hours {2 minimum} in the refrigerator.
    5. Remove a half hour before serving. Heat grill to medium-high. Sprinkle steaks with cracked pepper and grill 5 minutes each side.
    6. Place steak on a clean platter and cover with aluminum foil and allow to rest 5-10 minutes {it will continue to cook}. 5 will be rare, 10 well done, you can slice for a quick peek.
