Winter weather is officially here and it ain’t stopping me from being outside! One of my favorite things to do all year round is grill and I’m sharing one of my favorites with you; steak tips! Steak tips are my ultimate comfort food, especially with a delicious, gooey mac n’ cheese, and I’m beyond excited for tonight’s meal. My marinade recipe is super simple and will make your tips tender, juicy, and delicious. Check out my recipe below and share your thoughts! Don’t forget to comment your favorite comfort foods 🙂
Recipe is per 1.5 pounds of beef tips
- 2 Garlic Cloves
- 3/4 cup Apple Cider or Balsamic Vinegar (I recommend Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar)
- 1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1/4 cup Worcestershire Sauce
- 1/4 cup Liquid Aminos (Braggs) or Soy Sauce
- 2 tbsp Honey
- 1 tsp Salt
- 1 tsp Black Pepper
- 1.5 Pounds Beef Tips
- 1 large Ziplock bag
- Chop the two garlic cloves into small pieces and place into a large mixing bowl. Add all liquid ingredients to the same mixing bowl with salt & pepper. Whisk ingredients until well combined.
- Add steak tips to the bowl and stir well; ensure beef tips are completely submerged into the marinade. Let sit for 5 minutes.
- Transfer the contents of the mixing bowl into a large Ziplock bag and place in refrigerator for 48 hours (I know, the torture!). After the first 24 hours, flip the bag over to ensure meat properly marinades.
- Turn your gas grill (or grill of your choice) to high and let heat for about 15 minutes.
- Place steak tips onto heated grill and sear both sides for about 3-4 minutes; until steak is a rich brown color. Depending on how you like your steak, use these temperatures as a guide to achieving the perfect steak tip. For medium-rare about 130 degrees and for medium about 135-140 degrees. Unfortunately I can’t promote a well-done steak so I’ll leave that to the experts 😛 Be very careful not to over cook the meat as this will result in a tough tip.
- After the tips reach their ideal temperature, remove from grill and place onto a cutting board. Gently cover the tips with foil and let rest for 5 minutes.
- When the tips are done resting, serve with your favorite side dish and enjoy! I recommend a fresh romaine salad, a baked sweet potato or roasted vegetables.
- If your grill is taking longer than expected to cook the tips, lower the temperature or move the tips to a cooler part of the grill. Ideally you would cook on high heat to get a nice dark sear but ultimately we want to avoid tough meat.
- Experiment with flavors! If you have a favorite spice or herb that you enjoy with beef, add it to the mix!
