Steak Tips with Red Wine Sauce and Baby Potatoes

These steak tips with red wine sauce are slightly fancy, extra cozy, and the perfect healthier but delicious winter meal, served best with baby potatoes and extra fresh rosemary.


  • 16 ounces steak tips
  • 12 tsp olive oil, divided
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tsp dried thyme
  • kosher salt
  • black pepper
  • 1 pound baby potatoes
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 shallots, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup rosemary, chopped
  • 1 cup red wine, dry
  • 1/4-1/2 cup beef broth


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, add steak tips, 4 teaspoons olive oil, balsamic vinegar, dried thyme, kosher salt, and black pepper. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray. Add baby potatoes, drizzle with 4 teaspoons olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. If the potatoes are crowded, spread them between multiple baking sheets. Place on center rack of oven and roast for 20-30 minutes until fork tender.
  4. Heat remaining 4 teaspoons of olive oil in a large skillet over high heat until almost smoking. Remove steak from marinade and add to the skillet in a single layer (in batches if needed). Sear on each side for 2-3 minutes. You may need to remove the smaller pieces first if they aren't all cut in the same size. Remove to a plate and tent with foil to keep warm.
  5. Turn the heat down to medium and add the butter to the same skillet. Add chopped shallots and sauté until softened, 3-4 minutes. Add garlic, rosemary, salt, and pepper, cooking for an additional minute. Increase heat to high, add red wine, and scrape any browned bits from the bottom of the skillet. Simmer for 3-4 minutes or until wine reduces by about half and begins to thicken. If sauce becomes too thick, whisk in 1/4-1/2 cup beef broth to thin it.
  6. Plate steak tips, top with red wine sauce and additional salt and pepper, and serve immediately with baby potatoes.
