It’s so important to get your protein and I can’t think of a better way than grilling up a sirloin steak and finishing it off with a sweet and tangy balsamic glaze. Every cell in your body is composed of protein and your body doesn’t store protein so you need to replenish it every day. Protein is used to build and repair tissues, make enzymes, hormones and other body chemicals and is important for building bones, cartilage, muscles, skin and blood. Your nails and hair are also made of protein. Protein is considered a macronutrient because your body needs large amounts of it. Seasoned to perfection and glistening with it’s fabulous glaze, this sirloin will make you happy you’re eating your protein today!
