Sirloin Tips with Harissa

The Harissa is smoking hot. So I have decided not to use it as a marinade but will add a little bit to the pan when I sear up the Sirloin Tips.

For the Harissa:
  • 12 dried chillies - reconstituted in hot tap water
  • 3 large cloves garlic - crushed
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2-3 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. ground coriander
  • 1 tsp. ground caraway seed
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin
  1. In a bowl of hot tap water let the dried chillies soak for 30-40 minutes until softened.
  2. Add the reconstituted chillies and all the other ingredients in a food processor. Blend until smooth.
For the Sirloin Tips:
  • sirloin tips
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • granulated garlic to taste
  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  1. Get a good size skillet or cast iron skillet very hot over medium high heat.
  2. Add in the butter and olive oil and mix.
  3. Sear the seasoned steaks for about 2 minutes on the first side and 1 1/2 - 2 minutes on the second side. You want them medium rare or at the very least medium.
  4. When they are ready, remove the steaks and turn the heat down to low. Add in a small amount of the harissa and stir. Add the steaks back in to get a small coating on the steaks on each side and then pull them off the heat and serve.
