This post is short ... and sweet, kinda like these shortened steak tips.
Cathy, my friend, has a marinade that is so simple and easy that it would be sinful not to pass it on to you. I was extremely busy this past week - travelling across interstate lines for a family bash, making a Daring Bakers' challenge, and tending two kittens and two dogs that are going through cultural clash (if ya know what I mean!). Still, a girl and her man have to eat (if ya know what I mean!).So, Cathy's marinade was just what I needed.
I threw the marinade together and soaked the tips overnight. When I got back from the flying trip (very late at night) I was able to relax and sleep in, dawdle a bit during the day with the animals and know that dinner was set. Whacked up a few potatoes for roasting, steamed veg from the garden and dinner was ... on. the. table.
When you make them, don't forget a nice red wine. Cheers!
Steak Tips Teriyaki
One day before you want to have the tips, make the marinade, trim the tips of any gristly edges, trim to about 5 -inch sections, and place them in a ziplock bag. Squeeze the air from the bag and seal. Massage the marinade around the tips,place the bag in a bowl and pop it in the fridge.
Grill the tips to medium -rare on a grill pan or on the outdoor grill. Easy as pie, right?
½ c. soy sauce
¼ c. brown sugar
½ c. orange juice
1 large clove garlic, minced
1 tsp. black pepper
This marinade is enough for 1 to 2 lbs. of sirloin tips... go ahead and double it for more servings!
Accompaniments: Green peppers and Vidalia onion chunks are great additions to the grilled tips. Just sayin’.
