2 lbs top sirloin steak, sirloin tip steak, or hanger steak
¼ C balsamic vinegar
¼ C honey
3 Tbsp vegetable oil
2 Tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp crushed chili flakes
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp ground black pepper
1½ tsp minced, fresh rosemary
2 Tbsp vegetable or canola oil
Salt, to taste (optional)
Cut the steak into 1-inch cubes and set aside. In a large bowl combine the balsamic vinegar, honey, vegetable oil, soy sauce, chili flakes, minced garlic, black pepper and minced rosemary. Whisk to combine.
Place the cubes of steak into a large zip-top plastic bag. Pour in marinade, close up the top of the bag, and allow the steak to marinate for 1 to 4 hours. Remove the steak from the marinade and allow it to drain well.
Heat a pan over medium heat. Add the remaining oil and cook the steak until it’s done to your liking. If desired, skewer marinated steak bites with small skewers. Season with salt to your taste.
Note: Because of the sugars from the honey in the marinade, the steak may brown faster than you’re used to. Make sure to keep a close eye on it so it doesn’t burn. If the steak browns before the inside is cooked to your liking, finish cooking the steak on a lined baking sheet in a 350-degree oven. Makes 6 servings. Recipe and photo courtesy of tiphero.com.
