New England BBQ Steak Tips

Sirloin steak tips are an economical cut of beef that can be transformed into a five-star dish with a little attention and care. Sirloin steak tips often have a fair amount of intramuscular fat and do well when cooked to medium or medium-rare. Sous viding to 130°F and then finishing in a hot skillet or over a hot grill ensures the meat develops a tantalizing char on the outside while guaranteeing a perfectly cooked interior. Serve with your favorite sides. Looking for a BBQ sauce recipe? Our How-To Guide has three different types for any occasion.

In a large bowl, stir together the BBQ sauce and apple cider vinegar.

If searing indoors, preheat a cast-iron skillet with 1 tsp vegetable oil until smoking. Add steak tips and sear for 1-2 minutes, flipping meat constantly until browned. 

Transfer seared steak tips to a cutting board and cut into 1-inch pieces.

Transfer steak tips to the bowl with the BBQ sauce, stirring to coat.
