My wife (the garlic and pepper meatasaurus) just kept eating it.

Trim 1 to 1 1/2 pounds of sirloin steak. Use a mechanical meat tenderizer if available to prep meat. If not available, use a narrow knife and puncture each side about 20 times.
Mix 2 cups cold water with 2 T Worcestershire sauce, 2 T soy sauce, 2 T table salt, 1 T garlic powder and 1 t cayenne pepper in an 1 gallon zip lock bag. Seal and mix very well.
Submerge steak and refrigerate for 1-2 hours.
Preheat on high for at least 15 minutes. Clean and oil grill.  Remove from marinade, lightly rinse and pat dry. Sprinkle with 1 t of cracked pepper.
Grill over high heat for 5-6 minutes per side initially and then flip occasionally until internal temp of about 150 depending on your taste. About 20-22 minute total grill time.
