steak tip salad



This used to be one of our staples back when we lived in Medford, MA. There was this place we'd walk to called "Bob's Italian Food" on Main St. Bob had a great little spot. Cured meats and specialty cheeses along with a full service lunch counter doing subs, homemade pastas, sicilian pizza, all the good stuff. More often than not, though, if we walked into Bob's, we were making a B line for the meat counter for either homemade chicken sausages or their house marinated steak tips. We've come to the realization that "steak tips" is not a popular term everywhere in the US. Steak tips are a cut of beef (we use sirloin for this recipe) cut into 1.5" cubes and generally prepared by marinating, skewering, and grilling. Here's our take served with a nice summer salad.
