Today I share a recipe from Cheryl, another of my Twitter friends, @doodeegoose

 1 Cheryl

That is Cheryl’s beloved cat, Whitey in the picture with her. Cheryl labeled her picture, “Two Beauties.” Yes, indeed!

Cheryl and her husband, Bruce are quite the cooks. Cheryl always makes me feel so good because she loves so many of my recipes and actually tries them out and shares the results with me. She also shares new recipes with me too, like this one.

Today Cheryl and Bruce share their recipe for Marinated Sirloin Grilling Tips.

Marinated Sirloin Grilling Tips w/ Baby Romaine Side Salad

1 Cheryl 2

Cheryl and Bruce share a full menu with us too. They share their salad and dressing recipe. Their other side dish is More Thyme’s recipe:  Mushroom Swiss Crostini.

Their salad dressing is one of my favorites and regulars here may recall seeing this salad dressing here several times. It is my favorite since it is so delicious and inexpensive too. Plus easy to make.

This is what you will need for 4 people:
Sirloin Tips:

4 Sirloin grilling tips @ $8.99/lb– > we cooked 1.28 lbs = $11.51

¼ cup Red Wine Vinegar

¼ cup Olive Oil

1 tsp minced garlic

Generous pinch of dried cilantro (use fresh chopped in season)

Salt and Pepper to taste

Here is what you do:

Remove sirloin tips from package and place in flippable dish- I use a plastic restaurant take out container with snap top.

Mix marinade ingredients together, stir well.

Pour over the sirloin tips. Snap on cover, flip and lightly shake to evenly distribute the marinade.

Place in refrigerator for at least 2 hours before cooking.

Flip dish at least twice to facilitate marinate tenderization of the sirloin tips.

Grill, or have husband grill to desired doneness. We like medium which takes 4-5  minutes a side, turning only once.

Side Salad: Baby Romaine Greens

Olive Oil

½ half fresh Lemon

Salt and Pepper

Plate a fistful of baby romaine greens.

Drizzle lightly with olive oil.

Squeeze fresh lemon juice over.

Salt and Pepper to taste.

Bon appétit!!!

Quote of the Day

Just goes to show, eating good quality food at home is often less expensive than eating fast or good food at a restaurant.
