Sirloin Steak with Spiced Smoked Garlic Marinade

Just another quick recipe, with the aid of my Kenwood Chef and the Multi-Mill Attachment. I made a really nice marinade for a sirloin steak in a matter of seconds! I also had plenty of the marinade left for later.IMG-20130114-01334


Whole coriander seeds – 2 teaspoons

Whole cumin seed – 2 teaspoons

Smoked paprika – 2 teaspoons

Smoked garlic – 3 cloves (peeled)

Olive oil – a good glug

Sirloin steak – 10oz/300g

Equipment: Mulit-mill/pestle & mortar, spoon, plate, frying pan


  1. Put the seeds in the multi-mill, attach to Kenwood and pulse until ground.
  2. Add the garlic, smoked paprika and olive oil, re-attached to Kenwood and pulse until smooth.IMG-20130114-01332
  3. Pour a couple of teaspoons over each side of the steak. Put any leftover marinade in the fridge. IMG-20130114-01333
  4. Let the steak marinade for as long as you can (in the fridge if longer than an hour).
  5. Remove from the fridge 30-60 minutes before cooking.
  6. Heat a frying pan on a high heat for a few minutes until very hot.
  7. Add the steak and fry for 2 minutes of each side for rare, 3-4 minutes for medium, and 6 minutes for well-done.
  8. Rest on a warm plate for about 10 minutes before serving.
