How To Grill Steak Tips. Cooking the perfect steak tips on the grill is easy when you follow these simple instructions!

I was at my brother’s house a few days ago for a cookout and were talking about different grilled and BBQ foods. Of course, while talking about our favorite grilled food, steak tips came up. My sister was also in town visiting from Colorado. Apparently they don’t serve steak tips at restaurants in Colorado. Hmm.. I’m not sure why? If anyone knows why steak tips is regional to New England, leave a comment at the bottom of this post!

Anyhow, these delicious cuts seems to be a New England thing and I’m not sure what the rest of the country does with this meat. Probably just grinds it up and it goes into burgers? I don’t know! Someone clue me in!

What are Steak Tips?

It’s simple really. They are tender cut-off strips from beef roast. This makes for a melt in your mouth grilling experience. Some people will tell you it’s the junk cuts from any part of the cow. They’re wrong.


Steak tips, at least here in New England, are a specific cut of meat. It’s not tri-tip and it’s not sirloin tip. Think of a pot roast. You know how the meat just pulls apart with a fork, falls apart in your mouth? Now imagine that type of result straight off the grill with a nice smokey charred flavor – YUM! These are cut from the chuck, where as other tips come from the loin or round cuts of the cow.

And just for your piece of mind, this is also exactly how I grill sirloin and tritip too. So just follow the recipe below. Oh, and grab yourself a funny BBQ shirt while you’re here 😉
