Sirloin with Roasted Garlic Sauce
Serves 1 to 2
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
1 head garlic
8 TB Kosterina Garlic Olive Oil, divided
4 scallions, thinly sliced on a bias, plus more for garnish
1 TB lime zest
2 TB lime juice
½ tsp ground timut
16 oz sirloin steak
1.Preheat oven to 400ºF.
2.Roast garlic. Slice ½ inch from the top of the head of garlic. Arrange the garlic cut side up on a large sheet of aluminum foil. Drizzle with 2 TB oil and season with salt and pepper. Wrap the foil tightly to make a packet and roast until tender, 40 to 50 minutes. Let cool, then remove the roasted garlic cloves and discard the peels. Using the side of a knife, mash the roasted cloves on a cutting board.
3.In a medium bowl, add mashed garlic, scallions, lime juice, zest and timut. While whisking, stream in ¼ cup oil and season with salt and pepper.
4.Season the steak with salt and pepper. In a heavy-bottomed, oven safe saute pan, over medium-high, heat add remaining 2 TB oil. Add steak and sear to a deep brown color, about 5 minutes. Flip and sear for about 3 more minutes, then transfer to a rack-lined baking sheet and cook in the oven until a thermometer reads 130ºF, about 3 to 5 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes and slice against the grain.
5.Serve steak with sauce on the side.
