FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
In general, I tend to use sirloin steak. It really soaks up the juices and flavors nicely. Other options that you can use include ribeye and New York strip steak. You want a naturally tender steak. Because this cooks quick, if you use a tougher steak, it won't have time to tenderize as it cooks so starting with a tender cut of meat is key.
You can use any of your favorite steak seasoning for this or even a homemade blend. Some of my favorites are 21 Seasoning Salute from Trader Joe's or Montreal Steak Seasoning.
If you want to serve it over something, I would recommend rice. Sides that goes well with steak tips are French fries, salad, macaroni and cheese, baked potato and pretty much anything that you think would work well with steak.
No. If you just want to use one color pepper, that is totally up to you.
