  • 2 Tablespoons avocado oil (Click here for my favorite brand on Amazon)
  • 2-3 Pounds Top Sirloin steak, cut into 1.5 inch cubes
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • ½ teaspoon Garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon Black pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce


  • Place the steak bites in a large bowl and mix in the salt, garlic powder, pepper, and Worcestershire sauce.  Cover and set aside for 15-30 minutes.
  • Heat a heavy bottom skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the Avocado oil
  • When the oil just starts to smoke, add ⅓ to half of the steak bites, being careful not to crowd the pan.
  • let cook on the first side until a brown crust appears, about 3 minutes.  Flip the steak tips and cook for 1-2 minutes more.
  • Remove from the pan and continue with the rest of the steak bites.  
  • Let the cooked steak bites rest for 5-10 minutes before serving.


  • What is the best steak for steak tips?

I like to use 2-3 pounds of whole sirloin steaks and cut them into 1 to 1.5 inch chunks.  I wouldn’t use anything cheaper as your steak tips will be tough. More expensive cuts of steak would be good, like a ribeye or filet…but I’m not sure I would turn that beautiful meat into steak tips.

  • Can these be made in an air fryer?

Yes!  To make these steak tips in an air fryer:  Cut and marinade the steak just as we did above.  Pre-heat your air fryer to 400F for 5 minutes.  Add the steak to the basket and cook for 4-6 minutes depending on how done you like your steak.

Expert tips

  • Don’t over crowd your pan while cooking.  This will result in steamed steak instead of giving you steak with a nice brown crust.  Brown food tastes good!
  • Letting the steak tips marinade for at least 15 minutes not only ads to the flavor, it ads to the tenderness!
  • Make sure you pan is nice and hot before adding the avocado oil.
