Wonderful Wednesday Recipes

I remembered this week! So away we go:

Just in time for getting cozy with your grill this weekend:

Marinated Steak Tips

  • 2-3 lbs. Steak tips
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ½ cup oil, either olive or canola or a combination
  • ½ cup red wine vinegar (I’ve also used rice vinegar or dry white vermouth)
  • 2 TBSP ketchup
  • 2 TBSP molasses
  • hot sauce

Measure oil into 2 cup measuring cup. Add vinegar (or vermouth).

steak tip1

Add salt, pepper, garlic, ketchup and molasses. Add a couple of dashes of hot sauce.

steak tip2

Whisk everything together with a fork.

steak tip3

Place steak tips in a gallon size Ziploc bag.

steak tip4

Place bag inside a baking dish (in case bag leaks). Re-whisk marinade once more & pour on top of steak.

steak tip5

Smoosh everything together to make sure all meat is covered, close bag tight and arrange so that meat lays in a single layer within bag, inside dish.

Marinade for at least 8 hours, turning over every so often. I’ve let it go for as long as 2 days and it wasn’t too strong.

Preheat grill according to manufacturer’s directions (how’s that for a legal disclaimer!) Remove meat from marinade & discard (the marinade, that is). Grill meat to desired doneness, and serve.

I ended up marinating these ones from Friday night until Monday night. They were extremely flavorful, and the meat was very tender. This last picture, however, was taken of cold leftovers on Tuesday morning because I forgot to take that last plated picture before I sat down to eat - oops! So these may appear to be a little dry looking, but they were actually cold. If I knew how to stage a food a photo (and had the equipment) I could have sprayed them with some oil or water to make them look moist. Oh well.
