This bright, fresh citrus and herb pesto is the perfect partner for rich, smoky grilled steak. Ready in 20 minutes!
Preheat the oven to 375ºF.
Arrange the pine nuts on a parchment-lined baking sheet and toast in the oven for about 5 minutes, or until they become light golden. Watch carefully, they burn quickly!
To a food processor, add the parsley, chives, toasted pine nuts, garlic, and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper. Pulse until a thick paste is formed. Add the olive oil and pulse until well combined.
Prepare the grill for medium heat.
Season the sirloin steaks well with salt and pepper. Place the steaks on the grill and cook, untouched, for about 7 minutes. Flip the steaks and grill the second side for about 7 minutes more, or until a meat thermometer inserted into the very center of the steak reads 145ºF (for a medium rare steak). Place the steaks on a platter, cover, and allow them to sit for 5 minutes.
Top each steak with a generous portion of the lemon-chive pesto and serve.
