I know I have been absent recently. The whole "back-to-school" chaos has pulled me in tornado-style. So for whoever is left out there- reading and checking up on me- I have a special treat for you.

You will thank me for this one.
I promise.

This is the recipe that will put you on par with brilliant chefs in your guests minds. I can not take credit for it, and I probably should not be disseminating the recipe to the public. But since I have so few readers- who will ever know?! It is TE and my favorite restaurant's recipe for steak tips. The chef's were kind enough to share it with our friends who were getting married out of town and wanted to serve this (their favorite dish) at their wedding.
That is how good this recipe is.
And now without further delay:

ST's Steak Tips
(serves 8)
(calories 575/serving)
(you could stretch it further though)

2- 8oz cans of pineapple juice
1- small handful (1/4c?) brown sugar
3-4oz Molasses
2-3 cloves minced garlic
2 oz soy sauce
2 oz Worcestershire sauce
2T Tabasco
2tsp salt
3/4c Canola Oil
3-4lbs Steak tips

Mix all ingredients together, except 1 can of pineapple juice (save it for the end) in a Pyrex dish
Lay the steak tips into the dish
Pour the remaining can of pineapple juice over the top

Let marinate for 1-2hrs
BBQ until preferred doneness
Serve with mashed potatoes (or cauliflower) and salad

** I want to add that the calorie info is calculated on consuming 1/8 of the marinade, which does not happen, so calories are actually less. Not sure how to calculate that...

Awesome! I finally have access to the recipe! Might have to make this tonight! I just tried Chipolte today for the first time and it was yummy! I think you could have a pretty healthy lunch there by eye balling the healthy items onto a salad (which is what I tried to do). I was sad to see that they don't list any nutritional information on their website (unless I missed it). Still really yummy!
