Super Flavorful, Low Carb Recipe

As you know by now if you’re a reader of the blog here…I’m a big fan of beef. I think it actually should be included in most recipes. These Fiesta Steak Tips are on my top ten low carb dinner recipe, not only because of how they taste but they are so easy to make!

When I got invited to this “Meat Retreat” by the New York Beef Council I knew it was the perfect day for me. I got to learn about the entire life cycle of beef and how it eventually ends up on our plates, how to butcher different cuts of meat and also got to eat a little.

And at the end of the day they handed me a giant bag of meat to take home with me to enjoy. I’m telling you, this thing was BIG. All different cuts of meat, steaks, beef tips, filets. It was pretty impressive, and since then we’ve made killer  recipes, some low carb, some not but all supremely tasty.

Here’s a picture of me a Steven Olson, a meat cutting specialist that I learned a whole lot from. And Suzy “Sirloin” from Strassburger Meats.

Now here I am getting into the thick of it. Learning how to trim the fat off a cut of beef and how to properly portion each piece. I left with way more knowledge than I went in with – that much is certain.

They explained to us how they age their beef and the process involved with that. My stomach was already growling…We got to eat a few sandwiches for lunch (roast beef of course) and then it was back to work!

Just take a look at that aged beef. The process is really interesting, but more importantly…I wanted to get myself a taste!

How To Make Steak Tips Or Steak Bites

All you need to do is get the steak onto a roasting rack and get it in the oven!

I like to roast these Fiesta Steak Tips for only 15 minutes, then you can crisp them up under the broiler for a couple of minutes to get that nice crispy texture on the outside but still rare on the inside.

If you like your steak a little more well done just adjust the cooking time a few minutes more in the oven.

One bite of these Fiesta Steak Bites and you’ll be in love. It’s like a one bite piece of meat that explodes in your mouth! These are perfect for Cinco de mayo or any party you might be having.

Or if you don’t have any parties coming up just make them for dinner with a side of potatoes and you’ll have empty plates all around.

Description

This low carb dinner recipe is so tender and flavorful, you’ll forget you’re eating healthy!


Ingredients

3 pounds beef tips *see note

1 teaspoon cumin

1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1/4 cup olive oil

Juice from 1 lime

6 cloves of garlic, chopped

1/3 cup cilantro, chopped


Instructions

Add the beef tips to a large bowl.

Place all the ingredients for the marinade in a small bowl and whisk together.

Pour the marinade over the beef tips and toss to coat. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least an hour or up to 8 hours.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

Line a baking sheet with foil then place a rack on top. Spray the rack with cooking spray.

Drain the marinade from the beef tips and pat dry with paper towels.  Add the beef tips to the baking rack, leaving some space in between so they roast evenly.

Roast for 15 minutes, then place under the broiler for 3-4 minutes to crisp up the edges.

Remove the beef to a serving bowl and pour any juices from the bottom of the baking sheet over the beef tips.

Serve immediately.


Notes

You can buy beef tips already cut up for you in most stores but if they aren’t available buy a top quality cut of beef and cut into 2 inch pieces.
