  • grill


  • 2 lbs steak tips cut from the flap or Teres Major sliced into 2-3" pieces
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup Bourbon whiskey
  • ¼ cup soy sauce use the regular, not low-sodium, for best flavor
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon Tabasco sauce
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper


  • In a medium-size bowl, whisk together the olive oil, Bourbon, soy sauce, dijon mustard, minced garlic, brown sugar, Tabasco, and black pepper.
  • Pour the marinade into a sealable bag with the steak tips and squeeze out all of the excess air. Refrigerate for 2 hours.
  • Remove the steak tips from the refrigerator and place them onto a plate. Preheat the grill to medium-high and cook 3-4 minutes per side or until internal temperature reaches your desired level of doneness. Allow steak tips to rest for a few minutes before serving.


Grilling time will depend on the size of your steak tips. The fool-proof method for perfectly cooked steak is to use an instant-read thermometer and check the internal temperature of the meat. This is the best way to ensure that the beef is properly cooked to your personal preference. For medium-rare the temperature should read 145°F, the temperature for medium steaks should read 160°F, and well done is 170°F.
