Grilled smoky steak tips
Steak tips are just cut up pieces of amazingly juicy grilled steak - instead of having one whole. I usually like my steaks plain with salt and pepper but this is a fun alternative that will also taste great the next day!

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Cut steaks into 2 inch chunks. Mix with 2 tablespoons olive oil and salt and pepper.
  3. Prepare a small bowl (that is oven safe) with the garlic, balsamic vinegar, remaining olive oil and silan. Place in oven and cook for 30 minutes or until garlic is soft.
  4. Add the chili peppers and natural smoke flavor to the garlic mixture.
  5. Prepare a grill pan on high heat. Place steaks on grill for 2 minutes per side.
  6. Remove and place into garlic sauce. Mix well and serve hot.
Notes & Tips:

Natural smoke flavor can be found in any natural shop or in many supermarkets.

Orange zest edamame
Edamame are soybeans in a pod that are found in the cuisine of China, Japan, Korea and Hawaii. They are usually boiled or steamed and served with salt. I took them to another level, and I promise you will never eat them with just salt ever again!

Leftover tips for tomorrow’s lunch:

Because this steak is marinated it is delicious the next day even room temperature. Put it in a salad with grilled veggies or fresh ones and you will feel jealous of yourself, if that’s even possible!
