Prep Time: 1 hour
Cook Time: 15-20 mins
- 1 pound beef tips
- 1/2 cup Italian Simmering Sauce
- Place the steak tips and Italian Simmering Sauce in a plastic zip-top bag. Close the bag and shake to coat meat in sauce. Let the steak tips marinate for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator.
- Remove the steak tips from the bag and reserve the marinade. Heat a grill or grill pan over high heat. Clean and grease the grill grates.
- Sear the meat on both sides, about 2 minutes per side. Turn the heat down to medium low and finish cooking the meat for 5 - 7 minutes on each side or until desired doneness is reached: 145 degrees F for medium.
- Once the meat is done cooking, let it rest for 5 minutes before slicing. While the meat is cooking and cooling, take the remaining marinade and bring to a boil in a small sauce pan. Spoon marinade over the meat to enhance flavor.

Beef has an abundance of nutrients like B-vitamins, zinc, iron and protein and comes in such a delicious package with relatively few calories. Among the many delicious benefits you get from enjoying lean beef, one of the most remarkable is its role in supporting health. Read more about beef and health.
Lean beef helps support a strong body by providing important nutrients to build and replenish muscles. Among all the muscles in your body, your heart is arguably the most important. Diet and exercise are the cornerstones for building a strong and healthy heart. A heart-healthy diet is one that includes an abundance of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, healthy fats and lean protein.
Studies show that eating lean beef, as part of a balanced diet, supports healthy blood pressure and blood lipids.A diet lower in sodium and higher in potassium and lean protein helps lower blood pressure. Beef is a leading source of potassium in the U.S. diet and is estimated to contribute only 1% of sodium intake. Research also shows that partially replacing carbohydrates in the diet with protein could be a useful strategy for the prevention of hypertension and cardiovascular disease.7
Despite misconceptions to the contrary, beef contributes 10 percent or less of saturated fat and total fat in the American diet. Approximately one-third of beef’s saturated fat is stearic acid, the same fat recognized as beneficial in chocolate for its neutral effect on blood cholesterol levels. Beef is also a primary source of monounsaturated fat in the diet, the same type of healthy fat found in avocados and olive oil. With this in mind, it isn’t surprising that a number of clinical studies consistently demonstrate that consuming 4-5.5 ounces of lean beef as part of a heart-healthy diet, even daily, can contribute to overall healthful dietary patterns and improved markers for health.
