Skillet BBQ Steak Tips
BBQ steak tips off the grill? They're easier and tastier than you think.
Why This Recipe Works
We found steak tips sold as whole steaks, cubes, or strips. For our Skillet BBQ Steak Tips recipe, we preferred to buy strips and cut them ourselves. Making sure the pan was very hot before adding the steak tips was essential. Cooking the steaks in a pan that wasn’t properly preheated led to meat that overcooked before developing a good crust. Patting the steak tips dry before adding them to the heated skillet also ensured a proper sear.
For the sauce, we doctored up store-bought barbecue sauce with cider vinegar, a little ketchup, and sugar.
