Expert Tips

To broil steak, place on broiler pan; broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using times above as a guide, turning once or twice.

Tarragon is a sweetly aromatic herb with thin, dark green leaves. Its distinctive anise-like flavor is integral to several classic French recipes, such as bearnaise sauce. Beef sirloin steak is less expensive than T-bone, porterhouse or strip steaks. The price, as well as the flavor, makes this tender steak a good choice for a family dinner.

Prepare the bearnaise butter up to a day in advance; wrap the log well and refrigerate it.

Serve this steak with cabbage salad, grilled baked potatoes and a robust red wine.
