Skillet Dish: Sirloin Tips with Bell Pepper and Onion

Tender and juicy seasoned sirloin tips mixed with sweet onion and bell peppers and ready in 20 minutes with this quick weeknight skillet dish!

Sirloin Tips with Bell Pepper and Onion

It's hard to make good on my New Year's intension to eat healthy after the holiday indulgence when it is freezing cold outside.  Cold healthy food (i.e. salads) aren't cutting it on these cold days.  So I opted for a low carb skillet dish that is easily made in 20 minutes.  Now you will see rice in these pictures, whihc will satisfy my carb loving husband, this is great just as is to keep the carbs at bay.  

You'll get juicy tender seasoned steak tips that are tossed with a mixture of bell peppers and onions. This sure is good cold weather comfort food!    This is a great weeknight meal, or for any day you don't want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen.  Leftovers will surely taste heavenly in a salad or wrapped up in a warm tortilla for lunch, but you probably won't have any leftovers anyway.


What Ingredients do I need?

Substitutions and Variations

  • For an Asian flavored dish marinate the meat for several hours in a Teriyaki Sauce.
  • Switch up your seasoning blend for variation.  Try cajun, adobo, or a lemon pepper seasoning.

Kitchen Tips and Notes

  • Don't overcrowd your beef in the skillet or it will steam instead of sear the meat.  Cook in batches if necessary to get a good sear on the meat.
  • Use a good cast iron skillet like this one.
  • Using a hot skillet and stir fry method the meat will cook quickly since it is cut into small pieces.  Don't overcook.  
  • Buy sliced bell peppers and onion in the grocery store to save time.

Rinse, pat dry and cut the sirloin steaks into 1-inch pieces.

Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large cast iron or heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sirloin tips. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of steak seasoning and cook for 5-7 minutes until browned and to your preferred doneness. Season with 1 teaspoon of steak seasoning.  Remove from the pan to a platter to rest.

Add the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil if needed.  Add the sliced bell peppers and onion to the skillet. Season with remaining 1 teaspoon steak seasoning.  Cook for 5 minutes scraping the brown bits from the bottom of the skillet.
