El Pollo Loco expands its menu this weekend to include four new items containing grilled steak.

In a press release, El Pollo Loco CEO Steve Carley implies that the chain’s steak will borrow its recipe from the chicken with which it now shares a home, describing his sirloin strips as “deeply marinated in a signature blend of citrus, garlic, herbs and spices.”  In fact, each of the new products appears to have a direct, chicken counterpart — most notably, the marquee Grillmaster Steak Taco and Sirloin Steak Bowl, which look like carne asada versions of the Chicken Soft Taco and the Ultimate Pollo Bowl, respectively.
