Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 1/4 cups loosely packed cilantro leaves
2 scallions, white and light green parts only, thinly sliced
4 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
5 sun-dried tomatoes
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 boneless sirloin steaks (each 8 oz. and 3/4 to 1 inch thick), trimmed of fat

Preparation
