Key Ingredients You’ll Need

  • Steak: Make sure to cut it into bite-sized pieces and it can be any cut of beef like sirloin, London broil, chuck roast, or stew beef.
  • Sauce: This sauce is made with a combination of bourbon, honey, brown sugar, ketchup, lite soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and apple cider vinegar.
  • Seasonings: You will need minced garlic, black pepper, and parsley.
  • Cornstarch: This will be used with water to thicken the sauce.

How To Make Honey Bourbon Steak Tips

  • Cook the beef. Place steak tips into a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. You don’t need to cook through, you just need to add some color. Then, place the browned beef into the crockpot.
  • Make the sauce. Add the bourbon, honey, brown sugar, ketchup, lite soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, black pepper, and apple cider vinegar into a small bowl and combine. Then, pour the glaze mixture on top of the steak tips.

What To Serve with Honey Bourbon Steak Tips?

I love serving this recipe over a bed of rice or mashed potatoes. You can also serve this dish with other sides like; Healthy Broccoli Salad, Mashed Potato Puffs, or Green Bean Stuffing. You can enjoy it with dipping sauces like Crockpot Queso Blanco Dip, ranch, bbq sauce, etc.

Tips & Tricks

  • Place the leftovers in an airtight container for the best storage method for up to 3 days.
  • For a bit of spice, you can add some red pepper flakes.
  • Use apple juice or beef broth as a substitute for bourbon if you need to or you want to leave it out.
  • If the sauce is too thin at the end of cooking, combine the water with the cornstarch and stir that into the sauce to thicken it up.
  • If you typically add salt, wait until the end to ensure it is not too salty.
  • A simple way to enhancing the flavor is to use the sauce a marinade. Place the steak tips in the sauce 30 minute up to 24 hours, in a bowl or seal top bag. Place it in the refrigerator until it is time to cook. Be sure to squeeze the excess marinade into the slow cooker with the steak cubes

  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, sear the steak bites quickly.  You just want to get a little color on the outside, we are not looking to cook the meat through. Add the steak to the slow cooker.

    This is absolutely delish! Omg…the meat is super tender. Melts in your mouth. Very savory!

    1. Hi Gloria. You can use the cornstarch if you would like to thicken the sauce when they are done cooking. You can remove the steak bites and whisk the corn starch in the sauce and let cook for about 10 minutes and then add the steak back in.
