The Best Way to Cook Steak Tips Indoors

Steak tips are small cuts of meat taken from the area where a cut of sirloin attaches to the bone. Steak tips are most commonly beef but they can also be taken from other animals, such as bison. Grilling is one of the most common methods of cooking steak tips, but you can cook them indoors with tasty results. The best way to cook steak tips indoors is to marinate them in a thick sauce and then cook them on the stove top. This recipe yields between four and six servings.

Step 1

Blend the barbecue sauce, salad dressing, Worcestershire sauce and garlic pepper in a medium mixing bowl. Stir until the marinade is smooth.

Step 2

Add the steak tips to the marinade and stir to coat them in the liquid. Cover the bowl with a sheet of plastic wrap and refrigerate the steak tips for one hour. Bison steak tips will benefit from increased marinating time. Refrigerate them for two hours for best results.

Step 3

Preheat a skillet over medium-high heat. Transfer the steak tips from the marinade to the skillet. Discard leftover marinade.

Step 4

Stir the steak tips continuously for 10 minutes or until the meat is no longer red in the center. If you are working with bison steak tips, the cooking time might take up to 15 minutes. Be patient and do not increase the heat, as this could dry out the lean meat.

Step 5

Remove the skillet from the heat and allow the steak tips to cool for five minutes. Serve the steak tips while hot.
