Sirloin steak help

I'm cooking for the fam today. I've got 3 racks of ribs for the guys and the mom in law brought "steaks" for the gals.

The package says sirloin. Not my favorite at all but this is what I'm working with.

Any help would be thank'd.

    I use this stuff called Allegro marinade, soak for a few hours, then grill.

    I read about "hot tubbing" skinny steaks. I'm sure many here know much better than I.

    But basically you heat them in ziplocs or vacuum bags in water to like 115-120, then sear on the grill briefly up to desired temp.

    That is what I would do. Sirloin is easy to overcook when it's thin. I really like the flavor of sirloin but you could marinate if you wanted.

    Not really necessary. You could follow the fat lines and trim it off

    I think I'll do a little trimming and see what happens. Gotta get these ribs outta the way first. Hmmm or do the steaks on the small. Decisions decisions.

    Oh and if you do a hot tub temps between 100* and 110* are better. If your water is at 120* the steak will be cooked before it hits the grill.

    That is what we do with sirloin, marinated in Italian Dressing.
