Broiled Sirloin Steaks

Prep/Total Time: 20 minutes
Yield: 4 servings

2 tablespoons lime juice
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
4 boneless beef sirloin steaks (5 ounces each)
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms

In a small bowl, combine the first 6 ingredients; rub over both sides of steaks. Broil 4 inches from the heat for 7 minutes. Turn steaks; top with mushrooms. Broil 7-8 minutes longer or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145; medium, 160; well-done, 170) and mushrooms are tender.

Tips and Tricks
Use whichever cut of meat you like. Keep in mind that the difference between brown and burned when broiling can be a matter of 30 seconds, so check frequently. Buy presliced mushrooms to save time.
Make It Healthier
Use lean cuts of meat. Keep in mind that one serving of meat is roughly the size of your palm, so if your steaks are large, do not eat the entire piece.
How Kids Can Help
Mix the meat rub. Top steaks with mushrooms (supervise around the hot pan).
