All rights to this recipe go to Key Ingredient

Steak Tips with Red Wine Sauce


  • 1½ pound sirloin steak tips, trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces (add salt and pepper)
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • ½ cup red wine (i.e. Cotes du Rhone or Pinot Noir)
  • 1 teaspoon packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup beef broth
  • ¼ teaspoon minced fresh thyme


  1. Pat steak tips dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper. Heat oil in 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until just smoking. Add steak tips and cook until well browned all over and meat registers 125°F (for medium-rare), 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to plate and tent loosely with aluminum foil.
  2. Add 1 tablespoon butter to now empty skillet and melt over medium heat. Add shallot and cook until softened, about 2 minutes. Add wine and sugar and simmer until nearly evaporated, about 3 minutes. Add broth and any accumulated steak juice from plate and simmer until liquid is reduced to 1/3 cup, about 3 minutes.
  3. Off heat, whisk in remaining 3 tablespoons butter and thyme. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Return steak tips to skillet and toss with sauce. Makes 4 servings.
