Everyday Steak Tips - A delicious marinade that's made from everyday ingredients you have in your kitchen. But when combined - these steak tips are fantastic!

Today we’re sharing our go-to recipe for Everyday Steak Tips – a delicious marinade that adds fantastic flavor to grilled or broiled sirloin beef tips!   The tips come out tender and delicious with a slightly tangy, slightly sweet flavor that is our idea of the perfect steak tips recipe!

If you’re a regular reader here at A Family Feast, then you already know that my husband Jack loves to ‘tinker’ with recipes – adding a dash of this, a teaspoon of that, a pinch of something else – until he comes up with the perfect flavor! That tinkering process is exactly how this recipe came about!

Back in Jack’s food service management days, the standard everyday steak tip marinade was simply a bottle each of Italian and Catalina salad dressings mixed together – and it’s actually a great option in a pinch!

But if you want to serve something a little extra special, our version of everyday steak tips is totally worth the longer list of ingredients!  Please – don’t be put off by the list – most (if not all) of the ingredients in this recipe are items that you probably already have in your kitchen cabinet or refrigerator!

We’ve also included links to some homemade versions of some of the sauces and dressings used in this recipe – including our teriyaki sauce, bourbon barbecue sauce, and our homemade Catalina dressing.  But feel free to substitute the store-bought versions to make this everyday steak tips recipe easier!

    This is a great Father’s Day recipe! I have to try your Catalina dressing, too. I feel like I never see steak tips at my normal grocery store, but will have to look next time. I’m sure I can get them at the meat market though. We did your chicken marinade recipe and Jim said it was his favorite grilled chicken recipe:-).
