From My Kitchen: Steak Tips

I love a good old steak! I will never cook it as good as a steakhouse will, but that’s not going to keep me from trying! One of my favorite steakhouses in the city serves Steak Tips over mashed potatoes, and they are so, so good. Being that I live in The Bronx, access to this delicacy is obviously limited. So what’s a girl to do? Make my own of course. This recipe is super easy, and super delicious. It’s perfect for a quick dinner! Enjoy!

What you’ll need:

  • 2 pounds of beef strip steak
  • salt and pepper
  • oil for frying
  • 5 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup white wine
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce

Cut the steak into bitesize pieces, then sprinkle them generously with salt. Let the steak tips rest for about 30 minutes at room temperature. Add oil to a frying pan and heat to medium/high until shimmering. Add steak without crowding them in the pan. Cook in two sessions, if necessary. Cook for 2 minutes. Flip them over, then cook for another 2 minutes. Remove steak from the pan, and set aside. Discard oil from the pan.

Reduce heat in the pan to medium. Add 2 tbsp of the butter, and let it melt. Add garlic, and cook for 30 seconds, until brown. Add white wine, and scrape up brown bits from the skillet. Simmer for about 1 minute. Turn off the heat. Add the other 2 tsp of butter, and let it melt. Stir, then add the Worcestershire sauce, and combine. Season with salt and pepper. Serve over mashed potatoes or in a hero.

Bon Appétit!

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
