These little Steak Poppers are so easy, delicious, and budget friendly that you’ll want to add them to your menu plan every week. This is another recipe that gets 5 thumbs up around our house…and let me tell you that is rare. Since they only take about 20 minutes to make (plus marinating time), I don’t feel like a long explanation is needed.
Let’s begin, shall we??
Start with Thin Sliced Sirloin Tip Steak. This package of steak has about 4 thinly sliced pieces of sirloin, just as the name states. I buy this at Aldi and it’s about $6 for the package. (Please note, I use two packages for my crew, but we do have 4 boys in the house.)
Marinate this on the counter for about an hour in a mixture of balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, honey, and salt and pepper. (See recipe for exact amounts). Then place the thinly sliced steak pieces on a medium heat grill. Cook them about 2-4 minutes per side. Since they are so thin, it really doesn’t take long to cook it.
Once they are grilled, remove it and let it rest. Then, cut it into strips. On one side add a small piece of cream cheese and then roll it up. Secure the steak with a toothpick and top it with a jalapeno slice. That’s it. Could dinner be any easier?!?
We serve this with a salad, a baked sweet potato, and some Cheesy Jalapeno Cornbread.
