Baking is science and I don't like formulas, but cooking is art and anything goes...and the simpler the better. It's all about less time at the stove and more time at the table. With a forty year passion for food I'm excited to share what I do in the kitchen nearly every day.

Veri Veri Soy Steak Tips

Home cooking is all about the condiments as few of us have the time to spend the better part of a day preparing a meal.  As I see it nearly anything that easily enhances a dish is a condiment, extra virgin olive oil, kosher salt, soy sauce, olive paste, hot sauce, chicken stock, spices, curry paste, chopped ginger, it’s endless.  My house is full of them, and what’s great is that most last for months in the pantry or in the fridge.  One of my favorites is Soy Vay’s Veri Veri Teriyaki, an amazing marinade for barbequed meats.  It's in a blue and white bottle and widely available.  You can use it on chicken, fish, or any cut of meat, but I especially love it with steak tips.  As it’s such a thick sauce I usually pour a puddle into a glass bowl then add a few dashes of soy sauce to thin it slightly.  You could also jazz it up with some fresh garlic, hot sauce, or sesame oil depending on your mood.  With my hands I toss and coat my steak tips in the marinade and let them sit for at least an hour before grilling.  So good, just the right amount of salt, sweet and spice and most importantly, really easy.
