Pan-seared top sirloin steak

Monday's Memorial Day and I normally always grill either on the Friday or Saturday of Memorial weekend. This year I decided to change it up and pan-sear some top sirloin steaks instead.

Pan-searing steaks are unbelievably delicious and although they don't have the smoky grilled flavor, they still rank high up on my list, right next to grilled. Because searing the steaks in a piping-hot dry skillet adds a flavorful crunchy crust to the meat while it leaves the inside nice and juicy.
Seasoning top sirloin steaks/Gin Lee

First, I thawed the steaks out completely, then I dried them off with a paper towel. Then seasoned both sides of the steaks with McCormick's Roasted Garlic and Herbs seasoning, black ground pepper, and soul seasoning. I sprinkled seasoning salt on the steaks at the last minute of searing them.

Next, I placed a nonstick skillet over high heat and allowed the skillet to get extremely hot. Then I placed one steak at a time in the piping hot skillet (pan-searing only one steak at a time).

The top sirloin steaks that I prepared were one-inch thick. So for well done one-inch thick top sirloin steaks, I pan-seared the steaks for a total of sixteen minutes. I seared the first side of each steak for eight minutes, then flipped the steaks over and seared the other sides of the steaks for six minutes. For the last few minutes, I flipped the steaks on their sides and finished pan-searing.

For a medium rare steak: I pan-seared a one-inch thick top sirloin steak for about four minutes on each side, then I flipped the steak on its sides and finished searing.

Note that I do not add any type of oil or any type of liquid to the skillet when I pan-seared top sirloin steaks. Pan-searing is just that simple! No grease and no liquids, only an extremely hot skillet, and a well-seasoned steak are required!

Keep in mind that the time it takes to pan-sear a steak will depend on the thickness of whatever type of steak you're preparing.

A Moment For Memorial Day Gratitude

🇺🇸 I would like to take this moment to pause in remembrance of all the sacrifices that so many people have made for our freedoms here in America.
If you have lost loved ones, know that my heart sincerely goes out to you and yours as I express my undying gratitude. 🇺🇸

It is within my mission to ensure that readers will receive original and valuable news content. The content will be written about a large variety of topics. I find my inspiration in the art of design, illustrations, as well as writing content for viewers like you! As an author, designer, artist, animal rescuer, food blogger, organic gardener, freelance journalist, and contributor, I strive to encourage my readers to learn about topics that they may not be fluent in, as well as share my common knowledge about important elements of interest. Because, as circumstances have it, I do live in an extraordinarily rural area, of which I'm proud to profess. Writing for NewsBreak is an enlightened and enjoyable experience. It's been a collection of milestones for me. Concurrently, you (as well as I) have touched base on so many news levels, and we have all learned from the research I've done on a variety of topics. Although this is just a small token of my appreciation to all of my readers and followers, I want to say with a happy heart, and my arms wide open- Thank you for being you! And thank you for liking, subscribing, and following me! It means more to me than mere words can say! Addressing the rudeness in the room (in a way of speaking). Rudeness and hatefulness is why I turn the comments off on the articles in which I write. The world has enough vulgarity, hatefulness, and arrogance without it having any help. Since having the simple courtesy of manners is lacking, and sharing words of kindness does not abide in a few people. Those few people ruin what's supposed to be educational and an enjoyable experience for all others. I don't have the comments turned off because I can't handle ill manners. I turn them off because I do have children and young adults that are followers. Potty mouths, vulgarity, and hate are not acceptable. Sometimes I get busy and I don't get to turn off the comment notifications until a few hours have passed. This is why sometimes a few comments squeak through. I apologize to those of you who generally are very sweet and I also apologize to my followers who have been a witness to others being rude and malicious. I hope that as my followers, you'll be understanding of the measures that I have to take. Please be kind to one another.
