Quick and Easy: Building a Healthy Plate with Beef
Sirloin tips are a very simple way to enjoy lean beef cooked quickly with some vegetables for a healthy weeknight meal in thirty minutes or less.

Sirloin tips are commonly cooked using a round tip steak cut into bits, even though the title maintains that it is sirloin. I use the top sirloin, which is in fact a little bit more tender than the round tip, and to my liking. Cutting the steak into bites and sauteeing them with vegetables is a good way to stretch and just about double how far your meat will go while still remaining fairly healthy. It is part of a classic American steakhouse meal.

A retro recipe: I used to order this a lot several decades ago and nowadays I don’t see it too much on menus, albeit it is a very good meal. It cooks up quick and is fine for cooking indoors on rainy days or when Autumn weather brings summer grilling to a close. Perfect for weeknight meals, it cooks up in less than 30 minutes. Paired with the mushrooms, onions and a simple side salad and/or potato, it makes a very easy meal for me to prepare without much advance prep or cooking time. So when I am busy and simply cannot invest too much before we have to sit down at the table, steak tips are a great option. The beef itself is also very lean, yet tender enough to be enjoyed without marination or other fuss.

Cooking tips: I don’t use an instant read thermometer on this and you might wonder how to tell when your steak is done. For this I use the “Rule of Thumb” test which is quite simple. Feel the thumb muscle on your hand when it is wide open. This feels like rare meat. Touch your index finger to your thumb and feel your thumb muscle, This feels like medium-rare meat. Place your middle finger to your thumb and feel the muscle. This feels like medium cooked steak. Place your ring finger to your thumb and feel the muscle. This feels like medium-well cooked steak. And finally place your pinky finger to your thumb and feel the muscle. This feels like well-done steak. Memorize this and you will never misplace it when you are cooking. It is a good “rule of thumb” you will carry with you on your cooking adventures from now on, and never have an overcooked or undercooked steak again.
