Because International House of Pancakes, commonly referred to as IHOP, doesn't make its recipe for beef sirloin steak tips public, home cooks can experiment with a basic recipe for making beef sirloin tips to achieve the desired flavor and texture.
A basic beef sirloin tips recipe uses 1 1/2 pounds of beef sirloin, cut into cubes. The tips are cooked in a large skillet in olive oil until brown. Other common ingredients added to the cooked meat are mushrooms, tomato sauce, garlic, salt, pepper and red wine. Cook all of the ingredients for about 30 minutes. To replicate the flavor at IHOP, change the amount or type of ingredients added to the beef until the dish matches. IHOP serves its steak tips dinner with mashed potatoes, corn and bread.
