Sweet Honey Jalapeno Sirloin and Beans

Diane Hopson Smith


I wanted to do something different with our sirloin steaks other than grill them but still have that outside BBQ feel. So I seared the steaks and made a sweet honey jalapeno sauce, cooked the steaks in the sauce and added pinto beans (which made for some really yummy baked beans). Served with potato salad and Texas Cheese Toast. A nice little inside yummilious BBQ to say the least.

While eating our lunch today, Jimmy gave me a thumbs up and told me I coud win a prize with this recipe! That is all the prize I need!

How to Make Sweet Honey Jalapeno Sirloin and Beans


  • 1Rinse and drain beans; set aside.
  • 2Remove steaks from fridge and bring to room temperature. Combine seasoning; sprinkle steaks. Save remaining spice mixture for sauce.
  • 3In saucepan combine jalapeno jelly, steak sauce, honey and remaining spices. NOTE: add additional spices if desired. Heat over medium heat until jelly dissolves.

    NOTE: I live in a small town and often can not find certain items in our only grocery store. I did make and use my own Red Jalapeno Pepper Jelly - Dee Dee's
  • 4In a large skillet; heat oil over medium/high heat. Sear steaks for about 2 minutes on each side. Place chopped onions on top of steak and pour sauce over steaks; reduce heat to med/low. Simmer covered for about 25 to 30 minutes. Turn steaks one time during cooking.
  • 5Remove cover; add beans. NOTE: I lift steaks allowing beans to go to bottom of pan. Simmer an additional 30 minutes with lid tilted to allow steam to escape and beans to thicken. NOTE: keep a watch to ensure the beans thicken but don't dry and burn.
