Grilled Sirloin Steaks with Pepper and Caper Salsa

Sirloin steaks are perfect for grilling. They’re a tender, juicy cut of meat that requires quick, high-heat cooking, as opposed to a braise or a stew, to achieve a nice crust on both sides and the perfect doneness on the inside. This pepper and caper salsa tastes fantastic on top of the grilled steaks because of the sweetness and smokiness of the peppers, and the briny bites of capers.
