Recipe: Teriyaki Sirloin Tips

This is a really simple dish made with a few prepared products. You may have noticed or you will notice that I am not fond of using prepared products in most of the meals I create. My philosophy is that you should home prepare as much as you can. It's just better for you and your family. Sometimes though something comes along and if it works don't mess with it. This is one of those recipes.

This recipe came to me, (and therefor you) by way of begging, nagging, coersion and screaming. It also took several meetings in dark alleys with shady characters to finally get. It is not one of my own recipes, but it is just too good to neglect entering it in Chop Onions, Boil Water for my readers, friends, family and descendants.

It comes from the kitchen of a now defunct restaurant and former favorite hangout. Those of you who know me or are familiar with Fall River, may know of where I speak. It was a pretty cool place for a time. The social center of a lot of our lives. A place where I spent many, many hours, drained many bottles of cabernet sauvignon and made many friends. It is a place that represents a part of my life that I consider my own renaissance. A place where I was able to stand back, relax, look at myself, take stock and rebuild. It is also an important place because I met my wife there.

Enjoy these steak tips folks because many people who used to will never be able to again. They weren't as tenacious as I was at bugging and coercing people for the recipe. Nor are they as resourceful as my friends Sandy and Shane were at securing this recipe.

Thanks guys!
