What are Steak Tips?

Steak tips are generally sirloin and round beef flesh. You may have purchased it before as flap meat or flank steak, and it is noted for its loose, long grain with a noticeable severe meaty flavor at a reasonable price. It absorbs marinades effectively because to its loose and long grain structure. It’s not as soft as, say, tenderloin, but it’s tender enough to bite with a chew in between. It should be cooked to at least medium-rare.

Marinate Your Steak Tips Before Cooking

Marinating steak tips before cooking them adds succulence and a ton of flavor to the meat, which would otherwise be fairly tough.

If you’re stuck for ideas, the American Heart Association’s (AHA) flexible marinade goes great with steak tips and other meats. Simply combine 3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce, 2 teaspoons vinegar, and 3 chopped garlic cloves in a mixing bowl, followed by 1 teaspoon olive oil. Place in a zip-top plastic bag with your steak tips and refrigerate.

Another fantastic sauce for steak tips is our Fresh Mango Marinade. The meat will benefit from marinating for many hours or overnight to thoroughly absorb the flavors.

A marinade will also reduce the formation of cancer-causing substances when meat is cooked at high heat by grilling, broiling, or pan frying, according to the American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR). The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics recommends keeping meat in the fridge in a non-metallic container while it marinates.

Perfection in Steak Cooking Tips

  • Preheat a skillet over high heat with a little oil when you’re ready to cook your marinated steak tips. Transfer the marinated steak tips to a skillet and sear the outsides, then reduce to medium and continue to cook, turning over with tongs a few times to ensure even cooking.
  • Another option is to broil the steak tips in a single layer on an oiled broiler pan or baking sheet 3 inches away from the heat source.
  • Don’t rely just on the appearance of the steak tips to determine whether they are safe and ready to consume. The aim is to get the center of the meat up to the minimum temperature required for food safety, which is 145 degrees Fahrenheit, according to the US Department of Health and Human Services.

Steak Cooking Instructions

  • Lightly season the meat. To taste, season with Creole spice and pepper. Place aside. Heat the oil in a big cast-iron pan (I used a 12-inch) over high heat. Place the steak in a single layer in the pan; depending on the size of your pan, you may need to work in batches. You don’t want the pan to become overcrowded. A crowded skillet hinders the meat from browning evenly.
  • Steak Suggestions Cook for about 2-3 minutes on one side until golden brown, then flip and cook for another 1-2 minutes. If necessary, repeat with the remaining meat. Make a space in the pan and add the butter, garlic, and saute for about 30 seconds before adding the Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, and onions; cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally, to coat the meat in the sauce. Serve with mashed potatoes, rice, or steamed vegetables and a sprinkle of parsley.
