Total Time

I've made this recipe with chicken instead of beef, and the results were equally good. The combination of ranch salad dressing and Cajun seasoning also is great as a dip for fresh veggies.

  • 1 cup ranch salad dressing
  • 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
  • 3/4 pound beef top sirloin steak
  • 1/3 cup cornmeal
  • 1/3 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder


  1. In a shallow dish, combine salad dressing and seasoning; add the beef and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 8 hours or overnight. Drain steak and discard marinade. Using rubber spatula, remove excess ranch coating from steak.
  2. Place 15x10x1-in. baking sheet into oven; preheat oven to 375°. In a shallow plate, combine the cornmeal, bread crumbs and garlic powder. Coat both sides of beef in cornmeal mixture.
  3. Carefully remove baking sheet from oven; grease. Quickly place steak on baking sheet and return to oven. Bake until bottom is golden brown, 8-10 minutes. Carefully flip steak; bake until a meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°), about 8-10 minutes longer.
