No Photo


  • 2 pounds top sirloin steak, cut 2 1/2 inches thick
  • 2 tablespoons garlic spread
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons seasoned pepper
  • 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup bread crumbs


  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Trim fat from steak. Make a paste from garlic spread, vegetable oil, salt and seasoned pepper. Spread on both sides of steak.
  3. Combine cheese and bread crumbs; pat on steak. Place steak in brown paper bag (large enough to fit steak comfortably). Seal loosely with paper clips.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes.
  5. Increase oven temperature to 425 degrees F and bake steak for 15 minutes longer.
  6. Unseal bag to serve.

Yield: 6 servings

Afterthoughts: For easy handling, place bag on cookie sheet during baking. Annette advises, "You can bake steak early in the day, then bake at 425 degrees F just before serving. The steak is out of this world."
