Steak Tips

I was commenting to W the other day that I think I'm least proficient in cooking meat.  I usually leave grilling up to him (men like fire, right?) and whenever I cook meat in the oven or on the stove it usually comes out just okay.  The slow-cooker is probably my biggest ally, but I really can't take credit for the work that she does.

Shortcomings aside, I think I'm decent at choosing marinades for meat.  I discovered this marinade four years ago and it's always my go-to whenever we want to make steak tips.  I highly recommend it.  And I also recommend having someone else grill it for you.  Hurrah for division of labor!

Thanks to allrecipes again, especially Domenici, who apparently took one for the team and ate a lot of beef to perfect this recipe.  The only thing I would change is to marinate the beef overnight instead of only an hour.

Steak Tip Marinade


  • 1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup Italian-style salad dressing
  • 2 teaspoons garlic pepper seasoning
  • 1 cup barbeque sauce
  • 2 pounds beef sirloin tip steaks


  1. In a medium bowl, mix the Worcestershire sauce, Italian-style salad dressing, garlic pepper seasoning, and barbeque sauce. Place the meat in the marinade, and turn to coat. Cover, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  2. Preheat grill for high heat.
  3. Brush grill lightly with oil to prevent sticking. Place steaks on the grill, and discard marinade. Grill steaks 10 minutes on each side, or to desired doneness.
