Isn’t the word steak tips just the worst? It makes me feel weird. Just the tip. Ew. It’s just weird. And even weirder since my father is probably reading this. LOOK AWAY DAD!! So after getting through the first awkward feeling after I opened up my ButcherBox order to find just the tips, I did a little digging on their site to see what was the best way to cook them. I honestly thought steak tips were just like stew meat, so I was ready to throw them in a slow cooker. But turns out, their steak tips use beef trimmed from the various tender grilling steaks including cuts from tri-tip, culotte and sirloin so you can cook them up in multiple ways. And since marinating makes everything better, I marinated the sh*t out of these little tips. And this meal rocked my world. And my husband couldn’t stop eating it. That’s a big deal since he’s not a food freak like me.

So I’ve been eating egg free for quite some time now, but if you’re an egg lover, this meal would be even better with a runny egg on top. Even though I’m egg free (just because it makes my skin break out), I still dream of making out with eggs daily. Ew, that sounded weird. Weirder than steak tips. But I’m holding true to what I said. Eggs are life. Literally.
Yesterday was a major down in the dumps day. Not only did I PMS like a psycho path over the weekend, but then I had to deal with some personal stuff that didn’t help the situation. THEN I got a head cold. Plus a cough from a super hard workout. So I spent the night sleeping on the couch, trying not to wake my husband with my exploding head. Luckily, if one of us ever moves to the couch, our little doggy man Jackson followers and snuggles with us. We snuggled face to face last night, which was cool with me since he got a bath yesterday. I love that dog so damn much. Even when he decides to be scared of a nordstrom bag on the floor and starts to bark at it at 3 in the morning. Not his best look.
Even though the past few days were a bit emotionally exhausting and I’m working out very few hours of sleep right now and in need of some therapy, I’m ready for today to be a great day. So I’m starting here and making this great day manifest through typing up some words and putting a smile on my face. Fake it til you make it, right?! RIGHT! Time to cook for you guys and create some new content that you hopefully love! Happy Tuesday, you lovely person who took the time to read this!!
For the marinade
- 2 pounds steak tips (I cut mine into smaller pieces to be the same size as my sweet potatoes)
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1/3 cup coconut aminos
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 teaspoons dried parsley
- 2 teaspoons dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
For the veggie hash
- 3 cups diced white sweet potatoes
- 3 tablespoons melted ghee
- salt, to taste
- 1 red bell pepper, diced
- 1 yellow bell pepper, diced
- 1/2 sweet onion, minced
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- green onions, for garnish
- Place steak tips in a shallow bowl then whisk together the rest of the ingredients for the marinade. Pour marinade over steak tips, cover and place in the fridge to marinate for 8 or more hours.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, toss sweet potatoes in melted ghee and sprinkle with salt and place evenly throughout the baking sheet. Bake for 25-30 minutes, tossing them half way through to help brown on all sides.
- While the sweet potatoes bake, place a large cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add 1-2 tablespoons of ghee to the pan and once it is very hot, use tongs to place steak tips in the pan, making sure not to crowd the pan. This will let the beef brown and cook evenly, without steaming it. Cook steak on both sides for 2-3 minutes, depending on the size and thickness of the steak tips. Once cooked to your liking, place on a plate and set aside. Repeat until all beef is cooked through.
- Once beef is done, add another 1-2 tablespoon of ghee to the pan (if needed) then add the bell peppers and onions. Toss and cook for about 10 minutes, until the onions are translucent and peppers are slightly browned. Then add garlic and cook for 2 more minutes. Lastly, add the sweet potatoes and the beef to the cast iron skillet with the veggies and cook for another 2 minutes to warm everything through and combined.
- Garnish with green onions and serve it up!
