Why is it that whenever you see the words “steak tips” it always says “teriyaki” right next door? Teriyaki is made with soy sauce, which is avoided in the gluten free world because soy sauce usually has wheat on the ingredients list.
Here is a nice marinade for steak that does NOT include soy sauce!
1 Tablespoon finely grated fresh garlic
1 Tablespoon kosher or sea salt
1 1/2 teaspoons cracked black pepper
1 Tablespoon sugar
2 Tablespoons tequila
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
2-3 pounds steak or skinless, boneless chicken
Mix the first 6 ingredients together and massage it into the meat. Let sit for a half hour, or as long as overnight.
Barbecue the meat on the grill until cooked to your liking. Steak tips take about 3-4 minutes on one side, then turn and cook another 3 minutes for medium rare. Chicken takes 15 minutes to cook through, turning once after 8 minutes are up.
Make sure that all of your ingredients are gluten free, including the spices and liquors.
