Green Tea Marinated Sirloin Tips

I've never thought of green tea as a marinade before. I'd probably add a few drops of sesame oil to the liquid too.

Green Tea Marinated Sirloin Tips

A simple green tea marinade adds a subtle Asian flavor to sautéed
sirloin tips. Serve with steamed rice and vegetables.
Serves 4—6

* 6 cups water
* 8 bags green tea
* 1 (1-inch) piece of ginger, peeled and chopped
* 1 bunch green onions, green and white parts sliced, divided
* 2 lbs sirloin tips, cut into 8 portion-sized pieces
* sea salt, to taste
* ground pepper, to taste
* 1 TB olive oil
* lime wedges for garnish

Prepare marinade: Bring the water to a boil in a pot. Once boiling,
turn off heat, let water cool for a minute or two, and add green tea
bags and ginger. Steep tea for about 10 minutes, then remove tea bags.
Allow tea mixture to cool completely, then add half the green onions.
Place sirloin tips in a plastic bag and add the tea marinade. Seal and
refrigerate for at least 3 hours or overnight.

Remove sirloin tips and discard marinade. Season each tip piece with
salt and pepper on both sides. Preheat sauté pan over medium high heat
and add half the olive oil. Add as many tips as possible without
overcrowding and cook for about 2 minutes on each side, until cooked
to desired doneness. Set aside on a plate, covered, and keep warm
while you finish cooking the rest of the sirloin pieces.

When all pieces are cooked, sprinkle with the remaining green onions
and serve with lime wedges.
