Whenever Selma and I go grocery shopping, we always buy meat in bulk. Why? Because we are no longer poor college students, we are just poor. This week we got ourselves 2.5 delicious pounds of steak tips because Stop and Shop had a sale (as well as 4 pounds of chicken breasts…more on that later). I use a simple recipe that I developed in our short and terrible stint in an Allston sublet this summer (story to follow soon).
1 lb Steak Tips
1/4 cup chopped green onion
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tbsp sugar
Mix green onion, soy sauce, sesame oil and sugar in a zip-lock bag and make sure everything is well mixed. Cut steak into 1 inch cubes. Throw in bag and marinate overnight if possible for best results. However, if you must enjoy right away, no one will blame you.
If you dont marinate your meat in a bag, you think too highly of yourself.
It tastes much better than it looks i promise.
Sear for ~10 min on all sides for a nice medium-rare tip. The key is not to overcook this type of cut because it gets chewy and tough quickly.
Serve with an arugula and spinach salad paired with a Shipyard Pumpkin Head.
Or some asparagus cooked in olive oil, salt, and coarse ground black pepper with some red wine.
