Marinated Sirloin Steak Tips With Peppers and Onions

Sirloin steak tips are an affordable cut of beef that are incredibly easy to prepare. Marinating the steak tips before cooking elevates the flavor of the steak. The sear on these Marinated Sirloin Steak Tips with Peppers and Onions is all possible due to cooking them in a cast iron skillet. Serve it with rice or potatoes and a salad for a complete delicious meal.

You might think the only way to get a char on steak and vegetables is with a grill, but a searing hot cast iron skillet can work just as well. This is especially useful if you live in a seasonal cold climate where you can't grill outside. Sirloin steak tips are an affordable cut of meat which you can buy precut in chunks, slices, or in a steak form to cut them yourself. The advantage of cutting them yourself is that you can cut them the size you want. I like my steak tips cut in large 1 1/2-inch chunks but if you prefer to cut them smaller then cut them in 1-inch chunks.


WHAT ARE SIRLOIN STEAK TIPS?


Sirloin steaks or steak tips actually come from the round not the sirloin section of the cow which is a very lean cut. Buy sirloin steak to cut yourself or sirloin steak tips that are precut. DO NOT BUY SIRLOIN ROAST or STEW MEAT that has been cut into chunks. It is a meat cut that needs to be cooked low and slow and turn out super tough to chew if you try to use it in this recipe. You can also ask the butcher for help and tell them what you are planing to make just in case.

The steak tips are first marinated for deep flavor and act as a tenderizer. They are seared in batches so that the meat will sear instead of steaming. The vegetables cook with water in the same skillet after the steak to collect some of the charred bits. So make sure you have a lid that you can place over your 12-inch cast iron skillet because the vegetables will be cooked first covered, then uncovered to evaporated the water and brown the vegetables. Feel free to use any color of bell pepper or a combination.


In the pictures, I used red bell peppers and yellow onions. I love serving Marinated Sirloin Steak Tips with Peppers and Onions with Jasmine or Basmati rice but some other options might be to serve it with mashed potatoes, diced potatoes, cauliflower rice, or simply on it's own.

  • Love peppers and onions any way I can get them. Sometimes I just whip them up as a quick side dish. Will give this a try and report back. Cast iron is the workhorse in my kitchen and I cook, a lot, everyday. Feeding the bubble buddies and always looking for something different. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

    I'd love to try this. Can you tell me what cut of meat to buy? Sirloin tip roast? Sirloin pieces? Sirloin steak? I have never heard of flapmeat here in Ohio.
