Cooking Instructions

This simple steak tips recipe combines the rich notes of coffee and paprika with a tender cut of sirloin steak that is chopped and then topped with gravy and served with mashed potatoes. This warm comfort dish is perfect for winter celebrations or just a night in by the fire.

Note: It is recommended to use Mesquite Hardwood Pellets for this recipe.

This recipe uses Java Chop House Seasoning.

  1. For the mashed potatoes: add the potatoes to a large pot and add enough cold water to cover the potatoes. Bring to a simmer over medium heat until the potatoes are tender enough to be pierced with a fork, about 40 minutes. Drain the potatoes.
  2. Add the potatoes to a large mixing bowl. Add the butter, 1 tablespoon of Java Chop House and ½ cup of warm milk. Mash until smooth and lump free. If potatoes are too thick, add more milk, a tablespoon at a time, until you reach your desired consistency.
  3. For the steak tips: preheat your Pit Boss grill to 350°F. Season the steaks generously on both sides with 2 tablespoons of Java Chop House seasoning and grill for 8-10 minutes per side. When steaks are done, remove from grill, allow to rest for 15 minutes, then cut into chunks.
  4. While the steak is resting, add the butter to a small saucepan over low heat. Once the butter is melted, whisk in the flour and cook for 2 minutes until the flour smells toasted. Slowly whisk in the beef broth and remaining 2 tablespoons of Java Chop H ouse seasoning and cook the gravy over low heat until thickened. Remove from heat and toss the steak tips in the gravy.
  5. Serve steak tips over mashed potatoes. Enjoy!
