Summer Grilling: Sirloin with Spicy Blueberry Sauce

If you’ve followed me for a while, you know I love my blueberries. I make a raft of things with blueberries including pies, crisps, coffee cakes and muffins.  But blueberries on steak? Well, that was a revelation when I had it.

I created this sauce after having it at a restaurant one night. I never really had a real recipe, but I told my mom about it and she asked me to give her the recipe, so then I had to make a recipe.  It’s really good stuff.

Grilled Sirloin with Spicy Blueberry Sauce


  • 2 cups frozen blueberries (unsweetened)
  • 1/4 cup sugar + 1 tbsp
  • 2 tsp white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 to 1 tsp red pepper flakes (depending on how hot you want it)
  • pinch of chili powder


  • 1lb Sirloin, cut into 4 pieces
  • Fresh ground pepper and salt to taste

Batter Dipped Fries

I thought the regular fries were pretty good but these are over the top. Season some flour with garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt and pepper and whisk in water enough that the batter is a little thin. Dry the cut fries with paper towels, dip them one at a time, let any excess batter run off, and drop them into hot oil. Easy now, don’t get splashed with the oil. Keep the fries separated so they don’t stick together. You will be rewarded for your trouble.
