Prep Time
10 minutes
Cook Time
25 minutes
  • 1-1/2 pounds trimmed, 1-inch (5 cm) thick, top sirloin steaks (about 2 steaks)
  • 1/4 Cups honey mustard
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon each paprika, salt and pepper
  • 4 teaspoons hot pepper sauce (to taste)
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil (divided)
  • 1 Cup each chopped onion, green pepper and celery
  • 1 Cup u.s. long grain white rice
  • 1-1/2 Cups each chicken broth and seeded, diced tomato
  • 11/2 Cups white wine
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/2 Cups chopped green onion
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped green olives (optional)
  • lemon wedges
  1. Steak

  2. Place steaks on a plate. In a small bowl, blend honey mustard with garlic, oregano, paprika, salt and pepper. Divide mustard mixture in half. Stir the hot pepper sauce and 1 tbsp of the oil into one portion; rub evenly over the steak. Reserve steak at room temperature for 15 minutes.

  3. Turn one burner on the grill to medium-high, one to medium setting. Place a foil lasagna pan over the medium burner. Add remaining oil, onion, green pepper and celery to the foil pan. Cook, stirring often, for about 5 minutes. Add rice and remaining mustard mixture; stir to coat each grain of rice.

  4. Stir in chicken broth, tomato, white wine and bay leaves. Cover pan with a baking sheet (to act as a lid). Close BBQ lid and cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove pan from the grill and let rest for 5 minutes. Stir in the green onion and olives (if using). Discard bay leaves. Fluff rice with a fork and season with additional hot sauce to taste.

  5. Meanwhile, grill steak over the medium-high burner for 6 to 8 minutes per side or until cooked to preferred doneness. Rest for 5 minutes. Slice steak thinly across the grain. Arrange the steak decoratively over the rice. Serve with lemon wedges.
