A flavorful marinade makes for tasty steak tips that are ready in under 10 minutes on the grill.


  • 2 1/2 lbs sirloin steak tips
  • ⅔ cup soy sauce, low sodium
  • tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp app cider vinegar
  • tbsp ketchup
  • tsp garlic powder


  1. Make the marinade: combine the soy sauce, brown sugar, olive oil, cider vinegar, ketchup and garlic powder in a bowl.
  2. Marinate steak tips: Pat dry the steak tips, and place in a large sealable plastic bag. Pour the marinade into the bag, and seal. Gently toss the steak in the marinade, then refrigerate.Marinate the steak tips for at least an hour prior to cooking.
  3. Get ready to grill: Remove the steak from the fridge 30 minutes prior to grilling time to complete the marinating time and bring the steak closer to room temperature.
  4. Start grilling: Preheat a grill to medium high. Take the steak tips out of the marinade bag, letting the excess marinade drop back into the bag. Place the steak on the grill, and cover.
  5. Grilling time: Grill the steak tips for 4 minutes on one side, then turn and grill 4 minutes on the other side. This should get them to about medium rare, but check for doneness and cook for a couple more minutes if needed.
  6. Remove steak tips to a platter, and cover loosely with foil. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
  7. Plate the steak tips and enjoy!


  • Lower sodium version: When remaking the steak tips recently, we reduced the soy sauce to 1/3 cup, and increased to 3 tbsp olive oil for the marinade. It was still very tasty!
  • Marinating time: Consider one hour as a minimum. We have marinated this for 3 to 4 hours, too, and that works nicely.
  • Cooking time will vary a bit based on the heat of your grill and the thickness of the steak tips. Last time we made it, we used grassfed steak, which cooks a bit faster. If you have grassfed beef or thinner steak tips, you might check for doneness after 6 or 7 minutes cooking time.
