Grilled Sirloin Steak With Homemade Herbal Marinade | Feta Cheese Salad | Complete Grilled Dinner Recipe

Fire up the grill & let’s grill steak, potatoes & sweet corn…

One of the activities I enjoy in Summer is grilling. This time, I grilled sirloin steak & threw some russet potatoes & sweet corn as well on the grill. I like my steak to be seasoned well, made a simple homemade herbal marinade & marinated the steak for an hour. Grilled the steak, my preference is medium-well or should say close to well done- please don’t judge 😀 Grill your steak based on how well you want it. I must say this marinade has made the steak aromatic & flavourful. Also, made a simple feta cheese salad with apple cider vinegrette.

A perfect complete meal to enjoy in Summer.
