Marinade for Steak Tips?

(From Our Questions and Answers Feature)

Does anyone have any good recipes for steak tip marinade that they are willing to share? I'd love to find a recipe for marinade that is similar to the steak tip marinade made by the New Bridge Cafe in Chelsea, but I know that's probably asking for too much. [Go here to post a reply.]

Funny that I found this, I was also looking for a recipe like the New Bridge. I grew up on the same street as the New Bridge. I also love those large fries they have.

Try using equal parts:

Vinny Marino of the Brickhouse Cafe in Dedham claims to have originated the recipe for the marinade used in the New Bridge Cafe's steak tips. He's quite a character. Maybe he will share it with you.

I believe that the New Bridge Recipe is equal parts of Coca Cola, Ketchup, and Italian Dressing. Funny, my son was just telling me that he told people at work that his mom made that recipe. I haven't made it for many years, but I am almost sure that those are the ingredients. I always add some fresh herbs, garlic, etc.; but surely worth a try. The coke tenderizes the meat.

I tried both recipes, one with ketchup and one without. I don't think that is what Newbridge uses.
I let the steak marinate for 24 hours and it didn't seem to be the same. I cooked them on the grill. Any other ideas?
They were good though, just not Newbridge good.

Thanks Dude, I'll try that. My wife, who is the cook, says that sounds more like it. The taste of the Italian salad dressing overpowers the steak. We will try it. If anything comes about, we have had some great steak.

The New Bridge steak tip marinade recipe is:
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 Wishbone Italian (not low fat)
1/2 Coke

I had the recipe for the New Bridge steak tips and unfortunately lost it. I know Coca Cola and salad dressing were not ingredients - I do remember it included A1 Sauce, ketchup, lemon juice and brown sugar. Can't remember the other ingredients or the quantities. I remember it did taste like the real thing, though.
(Posted on 7/17/08)

Jim wrote:
I find it hard to believe that salad dressing and coke is part of it. Salad dressing has too much of a sweet taste to it.
Not that Chae's recipe is bad; I tried it but I don't think it's it. Could be the Newbridge trying to confuse us.

I always heard that the Newbridge and Floramo's both use equal parts of Italian Dressing, BBQ Sauce and Coke. I'm actually marinating some tonight. I will let you all know how it turned out.

Sounds good, what kind of bbq sauce?
(Posted on 8/7/08)

LM wrote:
I used Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce. They have a good variety of awesome BBQ sauces. For the tips I just used the regular though. I made two different batches. One with BBQ Sauce. The other was equal parts Italian dressing, ketchup and Coke like Chae wrote. Though both were very good, I really liked the one with the ketchup. That seemed the closest to the Newbridge and Floramo's, but not exact. Next time I will try the Italian dressing, Coke, BBQ sauce and ketchup.

I have not been to Newbridge for a long time; I would like the recipe for Champion's in Peabody or Bridgeside in Lynn, as I hear they have the same receipe. Not sure but I heard they use some kind of "Ken's" dressing, Coke, and for some reason molasses. Can't remember the rest. Any ideas?

I experiment a lot, and I came up with this receipe. Measurements I do not have.

Try it. Add more brown sugar and it is great on ribs.

MH, I would try that on chicken, not steak. Italian dressing has a tang in it due to the vinegar.
As some other folks said, vinegar and coke - not a great combo.

Directed to all readers: We live near Champion's and get their tips occasionally. They're very good, indeed, but I had leftovers from the Newbridge once and they are easily the best I've ever tasted! Our most disappointing (restaurant) tips ever were from the Halfway Cafe (everything about the place was sub-par).
Hey, guys....I'm about to marinate 2 1/2 lbs USDA choice sirloin tip steak (my first time) using a combination of the ingredients you're suggesting may be in the Newbridge recipe. I guess I'll include the Coke, especially since it tenderizes, but what's the best method? Mix ingredients in a bowl and put everything in a gallon zip-lok overnight? Do I need enough mixture to completely submerge the meat? Should I stab the meat first, or even use Adolph's? I'd really appreciate your expert suggestions! Thanks.

Well I just got back from the Newbridge and well....I was quite disappointed.
Last time I remember when ordering the steak tips is that the steak fries be covered in marinade. There was none and they were very dry.
The steak was good, but it didn't seem to have been marinated for longer than 5 minutes or so. The steak was good though. We purchased 3 different prepared types. med rare. med. med well. they all came out the same.
From what little of the marinade we could taste, there was no salad dressing or anything with vinegar. Coke and ketchup, well if any, very little. Now that I see Rifters recipe, I would say that would be it minus the soy. Maybe coke for soy. For the $13.99 a dinner they were not bad but not the Newbridge I grew up with.
Place was packed with locals which makes it a nice place to eat at.

We got the recipe from neighbors with some connection - they told us it was equal parts ketchup and Coke with garlic powder and onion powder added. We've tried it - it comes VERY close. Also tried it with fresh garlic and onion instead - also a great result. Think simple folks - the folks in any restaurant kitchen will use cheap ingredients they already have on hand!

After eating the tips at NewBridge one day, I ran into one of the cooks in the (tiny) parking lot. After begging him for the secret he said that he would tell me only that the main ingredient was ketchup. After much experimentation, I have decided that it does not contain either coke or salad dressing.

Jim wrote:
I agree, JJS.
The last 2 times I was there it wasn't as great as I remember. As I stated I didn't taste any marinade.
I remember the fries soaking up all the marinade; the fries were dry. The steak was dry with very little marinade.
Chasing a ghost. I think there are some good ones in here; I'll try some and come up with my own.

MC Slim JB wrote:
Though commonly advertised as "sirloin," many more taverns and bar/restaurants use flap steak for steak tips. It's the belly end of the short loin, a coarse-fibered cut that benefits from marinating and high-heat grilling. It's the same cut that French butchers call "bavette," a much tonier-sounding name, non?

I grew up on Floramo's and Newbridge. Recently awaken to Dom's. The package of tips at Dom's (original) is natural looking. No brown coloring that the usual Italian dressing, coke mixture gets you. But they are sweet and savory when grilled. I live in California now and I have to make my own tips, out here they don't do BBQ like us Boston area cats.

To correct/add to the prior post, which reflected on the result of a 24 hour marinade with the above mentioned ingredients. Same product was much closer after 48 hours and even better at 72. Much closer to Newbridge with the added marinade time. The tips did not get mushy either. Will be trying it next with tenderloin tips. Might add molasses.

I have tried several of the recipes in here and I don't think any come close; they are ok but not Newbridge good.
I wouldn't doubt if Newbridge is posting in here to throw us off.
I also agree with one person who said Doms sausage in Malden is great. We also get fresh bread from Panadosies and make steak subs.
I'm living in NY and we go back to Boston every six months to stock up on steak tips, they never heard of it here.
Mckinnons and Doms are the best.

OK - I asked and rec'd the recipe back in '96 when I was living in Charlestown. This is what I was told and have reliably made delicious tips for years now.

-So, is their steak marinade recipe their dressing, coke syrup and ketchup? Hmmmm....

James River BBQ can be found everywhere - all small butcher shops sell it - We had some really good marinades on our meats made in house.
Italian Tips:
1 bottle of Italian Dressing
1/2 onion cut small
1 tsp Garlic
Salt and pepper
1 bottle of ketchup
Marinate meat for 24 hours
Steak House Tips:
Equal parts Teriyaki and BBQ sauce
Pub Style:
1 cup Ketchup
2 teaspoons Brown Sugar
1/2 can coke Coke
Flap meat for tips...I buy it now at BJ's and Costco - cut the ends of it into tips and the center portion is cut into long strips. Cut diagonally across grain for best results.

I promise you that this will taste exactly like the Newbridge Cafe's steak tips..... I think the Coke and Italian dressing ingredients are interesting, but I use neither of them. It's actually a mixture of ketchup, lemon juice, salt, pepper, garlic powder and olive oil. There's little to no need to marinate for very long because the acidity from the lemon juice gets everything into the meat quickly. The secret is to cook on high heat to blacken things up nicely and then close the grill cover for the last 5 minutes to cook to a nice medium. If you like them rare instead, then just blacken and remove from the grill.
I'd love the dressing recipe if anyone knows for sure. (As opposed to guessing like most of us do.) I promise my recipe will taste like the Newbridge and would love an equivalent recipe for the dressing.

Melt butter with garlic and other ingredients. Marinate steak tips for as long as you dare! Best if done for 3-4 days....
Grill steak tips to desired doneness.
Hope this helps.

I cooked with a guy named Dave DiGiantimaso in Somerville when I was a kid. He always used Coca-cola syrup to make his marinade. The syrup gives texture and savoriness more than anything else. I don't think it really matters too much what your seasonings are as long as they stay near traditional ideas of Barbque ie garlic, ketchup, worcestershire, onion etc.
I'm inclined to believe NMBR1Chef when he says he worked there for years and it was equal parts Coke syrup, ketchup and dressing.
The key thing is you have to use coke syrup, not cans of coca-cola. The soda is just too thin to produce the results you remember from Newbridge. The real problem is that Coke syrup is hard to find. You used to be able to buy it at a mark-up from drug stores which had a soda fountain. You can also use Dr Pepper syrup believe it or not. Look online for coke syrup if you are serious. Good luck and God bless.

The Newbridge Cafe Tips---I live in Florida now but here is my own opinion...You need to marinate the steak tips for 2 whole days...You MUST use. HEINZ ketchup and COKE CLASSIC and any ITALIAN dressing.....equal parts...you need time for the steak to absorb the flavor and medium rare is the way to eat them...and nobody has mentioned the rolls...of course they are the Pienadosi (sp) rolls...can't get roll like that down here.

The one that has been repeated two times in this post. Try it. Cranberry is without a doubt the 'secret' you can't identify ingredient.
8 ounces Italian dressing
8 ounces cranberry juice
6 ounces Coca-Cola
10 ounces ketchup
Marinate over night. This makes 5 pounds of New Bridge steak tips.

I just ran across this thread. In the 50s and 60s there was a Middle Eastern restaurant in Lawrence named BISHOPS [the owners were named Bishara]. They had great steak tips but the item that I have vivid wonderful memories of was their French Fries. They had a wonderful distinctive,different flavor that I've never had since. Folks would come up from Boston just to dig into the mounds of French Fries. Would anyone out there know how these fries were deep fried and what kind of oil was used? I sure would like to know!!

An offshoot of the New Bridge operated in Salem NH during the '80's. Same recipes. My brother was the kitchen manager. The recipe is a secret, it is in the "family" if you know what I mean?
The stories about salad dressing and ketchup as well as herbs are there to throw off the truth. I don't know exactly the ratios but here it is:
-coke, base liquid
-brown sugar, not much or it will burn
-soy sauce, for the salt not color
-A-1 steak sauce, the primary flavor
-worcestershire, use a tiny amount only
-wine or vodka, wine usually, to blend flavor
The meat is called beef butt, it is triple needled and marinated at least 24 hours. Boil down some reserved marinade to use as a glaze during the cooking process. This is what makes the meat crusty. An excellent use for the marinade is for Italian sausages too.

Why would anyone put steak sauce on perfectly good meat. For all you pathetic wanna be's, just coat in olive oil, light sea salt, and a little honey for lite taste and to form a glaze to hold taste. Let sit for an hour or less, doesn't matter. That's it. Cook slowly low heat and keep coating with extra rub/oil mix until you have a nice glaze going, pull out of flame and enjoy. Meat doesn't have to rest or any other rituals performed. By the time you sit down to eat it will have "rested." Keep it simple folks or just go to Applebees and just say how awesome they were because you probably have no idea of what cooking is about.

Jim, have you ever had tri tip? It is a cut that most stores in New England grind into burger meat. It is on every corner of Santa Monica and it is great, and when cooked properly, beats steak tips hands down. There are only 2 tri tips per animal. Flap meat is the most popular cut of "sirloin tips".
I make it here in New England, and everyone that tries it, can't get enough. LMK if you would like to try it.
Maybe Newbridge feeds their cows a diet of coke, Catsup, and Italian Dressing?

The most interesting aspect of this site's quest for the perfect Newbridge recipe ingredients is that it has been going for 3 years now!
My wife worked in restaurants and her bosses always recommended the Newbridge cafe for steak tips.
When we first went I must say that I was totally unimpressed with their tips and couldn't understand why they received such high praise. I'm a foreigner so that could be part of the reason.
Came across this site tonight 'cos I bought tips for the first time in decades. So far no one has come up with the definitive recipe and much to the dismay of the poster who criticized those who had not yet marinated the tips but continued to post, I'm afraid that that is exactly what I'm going to do. :-) I will try a combination of some of the above and report back after the tips have been suitably marinated for the prerequisite 5 weeks and let you all know how they tasted.
I'm quite excited by this lively discussion and will bookmark this page to see what other comments come up.
Meanwhile I'm off to make the marinade!

I have tried almost all of these recipes. The one that turned out the best and impressed was the equal parts of Ketchup, Coke, and BBQ Sauce. For my BBQ I used Jack Daniels Original. If you want that sweet glaze brush a mixture of honey and brown sugar on the tips on high heat at the beginning of cooking on the grill. The high heat also gives you that nice slightly crispy outside of the tips.
On another note, I have been trying to figure out the recipe for Champions in Peabody for months now. By far the best steak tips I have ever eaten and pretty much all I eat are steak tips. For months I have been working on figuring out how they make them so sweet. They honestly taste like candy when I eat them and I could eat them for every meal. I bring all of my friends there and order for them. Steak tips with onion rings with an Italian salad is the greatest meal I have ever eaten hands down.
If anyone has that recipe or any ideas on what may be in it please let me know. I have 5 new marinades I will be trying in the next week or so and I will post my findings as well.

Desperate for MA's cuisine wrote:
HPNative (if you're still following this thread)is there a Publix near you? I've been stuck in Alabama for the last six years, desperatly searching for decent pizza, chinese food, and a cut of meat comparable to steak tips. Every butcher in the Mobile/Pensacola area has emphatically told me that I would not find flap meat south of CT. I had given up, until the other day at my local Publix where I reached for a flank steak and realized that it was flap meat. I nearly kissed the butcher when she came out with a 14 lb. vacuum sealed bag of flap. She told me that once Publix shows that they are capable of getting a product in they are all but obligated to get it for a customer if they ask for it again. It may be worth your while to ask your butcher. I understand your missing bread from home, again until Publix opened I had not had one slice of decent bread down here. Their Chicago style Italian, is close enough to home and the bakery manager at my local shop is from MA and he's made scali bread and portuguese rolls for me on request. Good Luck! Oh yeah, and Piantedosi's ships their bread so there's always that option.
As far as the marinade, my aunt who knew owners of the Newbridge, taught me 2 parts ketchup, 2 parts italian dressing, and 1 part coke. Of course they're not EXACTLY Newbridge tips, but they're pretty darn good. I cannot believe this has been going on for over four years! I'll be checking back for Champion's recipe, even as a broke student at Salem State I could always schrounge up enough for their tips!
