COOK’S TIP
If you are cooking your own beef, start with 1 to 1 ¼ pounds boneless beef top sirloin steak, cut 1 inch thick. Preheat broiler. Place steak on the unheated rack of a broiler pan and broil 3 to 4 inches from heat to desired doneness, turning once halfway through boiling. Allow 15 to 17 minutes for medium-rare doneness (145 F) or 20 to 22 minutes for medium doneness (160 F).
