Clahan's Jersey Beef - Best Steak Recipe EVER

In 2000, there was a show on Food Network called Calling All Cooks. The man, Mr. Clahan, and his wife didn't have any children and passed this recipe on as their legacy. It's been one of my family's favorites for over decade. I serve it as dinner and also as an appetizer. I did reduce the amount of sauce from the original recipe, but you can double it, if you want more. This recipe has never failed to draw raves!

Clahan's Jersey Beef - Best Steak Recipe EVER


2 1/2 lbs top sirloin steak, 1 and 1/2 inches thick
2 tablespoons yellow mustard
1 tablespoon minced garlic clove
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon black pepper, fine grind
1 loaf white bread, toasted

1 stick butter
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon minced garlic
3 tablespoons red wine
1/8 teaspoon salt and pepper

Trim off all fat from the outside of the steak.

Mix the mustard, garlic, Worcestershire and pepper in a small bowl. Spread the marinade all over the steak. Marinate at room temperature for 1-2 hours, but do not marinate for more than 2 hours. Preheat the grill. Cook 10-12 minutes per side for medium. Let meat rest before slicing across grain in 1/4 inch slices (I use an electric knife.) In a small saucepan, combine the sauce ingredients. Cook over a medium heat for 5 minutes. Cut the toast into thirds. Place a slice of the sirloin on top of the toast section. Drizzle with the sauce.

  1. The original recipe called for 1/4 cup Madeira wine instead of red wine.
