Easy Balsamic Glazed Steak Tips and Mushrooms

Maybe you’ve never heard of steak tips before, or maybe you’ve been eating them this whole time. It’s an inexpensive cut of beef that has a loose-grain texture, perfect for soaking up marinades like this soy and balsamic one that’s salty and tangy at the same time. Throw some mushrooms into the pan after the meat’s ready, add some more vinegar and a touch of butter, and you’re left with a glossy sauce to drag each bite of steak through.


For the steak:

  • 1 1/2 pounds 

    sirloin steak tips, flap meat, or flank steak, cut into 3-inch pieces

  • 1/4 cup 

    tamari or soy sauce

  • tablespoons 

    vegetable oil

  • tablespoons 

    balsamic vinegar

  • tablespoon 

    granulated sugar

  • cloves 

    garlic, minced

  • teaspoon 

    Dijon mustard

  • 1/2 teaspoon 

    kosher salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon 

    freshly ground black pepper

For the mushrooms:

  • tablespoons 

    vegetable oil

  • pound 

    cremini mushrooms, halved or quartered if large

  • tablespoons 

    balsamic vinegar

  • tablespoons 

    unsalted butter

  • Coarsely chopped fresh parsley leaves, for garnish (optional)


Marinate the steak: Place the steak in a single layer in a 9x13-inch baking dish or in a resealable gallon plastic bag; set aside. Whisk the remaining ingredients in a small bowl until the sugar is dissolved. Pour over the steak and turn the steak to coat. Cover the baking dish or seal the bag, and refrigerate at least 1 hour or up to 4 hours.

Cook the steak and mushrooms: Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat until shimmering. While the oil is heating, remove the steak from the marinade and pat dry with paper towels. Add the steak pieces to the pan (it's okay to crowd the pan as long as they're in a single layer) and sear until browned and the thickest piece registers 120°F to 125°F for medium-rare steak, 3 to 4 minutes on each side. (Or cook to 130°F to 135°F for medium steak, and 140°F to 145°F for medium-well steak — add a minute or two for every 10 degrees needed.) Transfer to a serving platter and set aside in a warm place or cover loosely with aluminum foil.

Add the mushrooms to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally and adjusting the heat if needed, until tender, about 5 minutes — they will release a lot of liquid. Add the vinegar and simmer 1 minute. Remove from the heat, add the butter, and stir until melted and the sauce in the pan is glossy. Taste and season with salt and pepper as needed. Pour over the steak, top with the parsley if desired, and serve.


Storage: Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Marinade: The marinade can be made and stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Rewhisk before using.
