"I learned this recipe one night after a long, hard day. It was the best steak I've ever had! Juicy star fruit and Worcestershire sauce fill the meat with flavor."

beef sirloin steak
ground black pepper
carambola (star fruit), cut into 1/3 inch slices
fyi: star fruit in season april - sept
My husband hates star fruit so we tried another persons recomendation and used strawberry....NOT GOOD! I give this recipe a 3 but I don't see it being any better than the strawberry!
My local grocery store didn't have starfuit so I substituted it with strawberries. I could only marinade for 2 hours so I decided to stuff some bits of strawberry in the steak, like you would with garlic. I dont have a normal grill so I put it on my George Foreman grill for 5 min with the layer of strawberries still on top. The only word to describe this marinade is "Amazing." The simplicity of it all I think is really the best part. The only thing I would change would be to puree some strawberries and put them in the marinade to really get the flavor in the steaks without having to clean mushy and sticky strawberries off the top of the grill. I will definately make this one again.
An awesome way to use a starfruit!
Very good recipe. My whole family loved it. The only thing I did different was to marinate it for about 30 hours, and add a bit more citrus juice as well.
SO GOOD!!!I DIDN'T HAVE ANY STAR FRUIT SO I USED STRAWBERRIES. WORKED OUT GREAT!
I thought this was a fantastic tasting steak considering how easy the marinade was. Sometimes the recipes that taste the best are the simplest to make. I could not find a star fruit at any of the 3 super markets here in town, so I made a judgement call and used a mango. I know what star fruit tastes like and it would have made this an incredible recipe, hence my 5 star rating. The mango is awesome, as well, if you can't find star fruit...I used 1 for 4 steaks and it worked out perfectly. Thanks for submitting such an easy, tasty recipe...we enjoyed it very much.
I used lawry's seasoned salt instead of salt and pepper it was amazing
