Tucanos is a Mountain West restaurant located in various states throughout the United States. It began with some Brazilians that moved to the states from Brazil and brought their culture to us! In true Brazilian Churrasco form, they serve delicious grilled meats with a buffet of salads and other Brazilian foods with some great American foods mixed in.
One of my favorite meats there is their Garlic Sirloin. It’s salty, garlic-y, and delicious. While I like most of their food, I don’t always love their cost so of course I decided to bring the recipe home and recreate my favorite on my grill.
My recommendation is to make sure you let the meat soak in the salt and flavors overnight. It smells great in the refrigerator and creates an amazing flavor for the meat when it’s time to eat it.
- 1 pound top sirloin steak
- 2 tablespoons minced garlic
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/2 cup melted butter
Cube top sirloin steak into about 1" pieces.
Put steak into a bowl and add minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Stir so seasonings are evenly spread on each piece. Cover and let sit overnight or 8 hours in refrigerator.
Melt 1/2 cup butter.
Heat up grill to 375°F.
Place cubed steak onto skewers. Spread melted butter onto each piece with a brush.
Rotate every 2 minutes and continue to add melted butter until pieces are cooked through on grill. Meat should be 150° for medium/well-done steak.
Let meat rest for about 5 minutes. Serve & enjoy!
