Ingredients:

  • 2 beef Petite Sirloin Steaks (about 8 ounces each)
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 red or yellow bell peppers, cut into quarters
  • Salt and ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup pimiento-stuffed green olives, chopped
Marinade:
  • 1/3 cup sherry wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon smoked or sweet paprika

Grill steaks, covered, 7 to 11 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 8 to 13 minutes) for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally. Grill peppers, 9 to 12 minutes (for gas, 7 to 11 minutes) or until tender, turning occasionally.

  3. Remove steaks;  let stand 5 minutes.  Carve steaks across the grain into thin slices; season with salt and black pepper, as desired. Cut bell peppers 1/2-inch strips.  Serve beef with bell peppers. Drizzle with reserved marinade; sprinkle with olives. Garnish with cilantro, if desired.
