Stuffed Sirloin Tip

Our families haven’t seen us since I began my cooking adventures. This is what they are used to:

  • Me sitting around relaxing while they are cooking
  • Occasionally they would ask me to grab something, and I would internally feel freaked out and wonder, “Am I going to know what that is?”
  • Pouring the gravy into the “Gravy bowl” wrong dish.
  • My pickyness….growing up my mom would make 2 meals. One for me and one for everyone else.
  • Blandness….give me some bland food please! 🙂
  • Me not being willing to try things they make that I have never had before.

You could ask my mom, dad, and brothers if they ever thought I would cook, no less enjoy it, and they would all say with absoluteness, “NO WAY!!”  But, I am a different person now. 😀

So, how fun to get to cook for our families and let them into this new world of mine….this world of creating beauty in the kitchen!

I recently cooked for my mother-in-law for the first time ever. I wanted to introduce her to some of my favorite things, so I came up with this recipe consisting of steak, black beans, quinoa, sauteed onions, Monterrey Jack cheese, and a sweet and tangy honey & white wine vinegar sauce.

My mother-in-law was a trooper…she is just like I used to be….very picky, likes bland food, and is convinced she hates things even though she has never tried them. I totally understand where she is coming from! We told her she had to at least take one full bite with everything in it and then if she didn’t like it she didn’t have to eat it. 🙂  Well, she took that bite….thank you mom….okay, so she is not quite ready for my adventurousness yet. 😉 I have to admit though that I wasn’t too sad about it because it just meant that hubby and I could have more! 🙂

Hubby did the actual grilling for me….he is the grill master in our house. 🙂 This delicious sauce I made is what he basted the sirloin in…so flavorful!

We absolutely loved this recipe! Really….I could eat this every day! Not exaggerating! And because I love it this much, I am bringing it to the party this week! Dig in friends! 😀 Fiesta Friday goodness!

Angie, thanks for starting this party and keeping it going every week! I truly love it! And to you wonderful co-hosts (Fae at Fae’s Twist & Tango and Suzanne at A Pug in the Kitchen) , thanks so much for all of your hard work! Between you and Angie…you guys keep this party hopping! 🙂

Stuffed Sirloin Tip

*Created by Lori at Creating Beauty in the Kitchen

Ingredients:

  • 3 large extremely thin cut sirloin strip steaks
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 3/4 of a yellow onion
  • Chili powder
  • Honey
  • White Wine Vinegar
  • Monterrey Jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup quinoa
  • Olive oil or grapeseed oil

Directions:

  • Put 1 cup of water into a saucepan and boil.
  • When the water comes to a boil, add in the quinoa until it begins to boil again.
  • Reduce to medium heat, place a lid on the saucepan, and let simmer for about 12 minutes or until it has sucked up all the water. (You may want to check on it a few times. If all the water soaks up too soon the quinoa will become really crunchy.).
  • When this is finished, take it off of the heat, stir it, cover again, and let sit for 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, slice up the onion.
  • Pour a little bit of oil in a skillet and saute the onions. When they are mostly finished, add in the black beans, some honey, some white wine vinegar, and chili powder. Cook until all heated.
  • When quinoa is finished, add it into the skillet and stir.
  • Make a cup of sauce for basting with by combining honey, white wine vinegar and chili powder…play around until you find the taste you are looking for…whether you like it more tangy or more sweet. Set aside.
  • Lay the steak out. Put the black bean/quinoa mixture onto one half of each steak, fold the steak up, and use skewers to hold it tightly together.
  • Grill, flipping and basting, until cooked to your liking.
  • Use any extra sauce to pour over the steak at the end.

Come Join the party! All are welcome!

  1. I’ll gladly take some bites, Lori! I can’t imagine you as a picky eater! Or with a preference for bland food?! You have created masterpieces in the kitchen and inspire me to think outside of the box. 😀

  2. I am not a picky eater, Lori, but I was a huge eater. My mom used to separate mine from the others, but I end up taking others’ share, too! 😀 So imagine a separate container with my name or she would say verbally that such container is all mine. 😀

    This, my friend, is incredibly mouth-watering! I have not tried grilling steak as I am not very patient with grlling. Good job, Lori! Or should I say good job to your hubby? 😀

  4. Lori, I was the exact same way. I always told my parents that I would marry someone who would cook, while I would offer to clean all the dishes! Some days I’m at the point where I find cooking fun! (Other days it’s still more of a necessity). This looks like a delicious recipe as well. Glad you had such a nice time with your family! 🙂

  6. Hey Lori! I’m sure your meal was just scrumptious!! It is something that my hubby and I would cook for our family too!! I love your excitement for your new culinary adventures and you never know, your mom-in-law may come around on day! Some members of my family used to feel the same way about my cooking too, but now they are all on board with me, well except for my brother… 😀

  7. I would never have thought of stuffing a steak Lori – you really are a very creative cook! Always good to have a grill meister hubby and how lovely of his mum to have a taste and how nice that you can completely understand where she is coming from! Happy Fiesta Friday!

  8. I’m not a big steak fan but this looks so yummy, I would definitely eat it all up!
    I used to be very very picky when I was younger, I was pretty much just not a fan of food and would barely eat anything, I drove my mum crazy. I’m much more adventurous as an adult though, but I still find myself thinking I don’t like things I’ve never actually tried!

  9. What a delicious combination of ingredients, Lori! I love that the flavors of the meat are there, without the heaviness of a “hunk” of meat. I’m bookmarking this one for sure…gonna see if my hubby will grill some up for me this weekend. 🙂

  10. Hello Lori, Happy Fiesta Friday #20! A girl after my own heart, bringing meat, a stuffed grilled sirloin! Picky girl becoming a Foodie is quite an progress and an accomplishment. Crunchy quinoa in a bite together with soft juicy meat is very inovative and delicious. 😛

  12. Excellent recipe, Lori. Very creative! Will give it a try, for sure. I applaud you for changing your attitude toward food. It means you’ve grown up now and have acquired sophisticated palate. Like I have when it comes to eggplants. Used to hate, now love. See, I’m sophisticated now. Lol…

  13. Looks so delicious, Lori! I bet your family was very proud of you to see you cook 😀 Too bad your mom-in-law didn’t like your cooking adventure that much. But that does mean you and your hubby have more 😀 (Yay!)
