If you could solve one problem in the world, what would it be and why? Do you have any ideas about how to solve it?

This steak tip recipe is a favorite in the home of our Executive Director, Lynn Barendsen. Her elder son, Tano, nominated it as his favorite back-to-school family dinner. The rub originated from a Mario Batali recipe, and the Barendsen-Rossi family uses it on both beef and lamb for easy meals.


  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 lbs. steak tips (about 1 inch thick)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


  1. In a small bowl, mix all herbs, salt and pepper until combined.
  2. Pat steak tips dry and coat with the rub.
  3. Brush gently with olive oil.
  4. Place on a preheated grill (or in a cast-iron skillet) and cook for about 5 minutes per side (for steak tips about 1 inch thick; for thicker meat, add a minute or two; for thinner meat, decrease the time) for medium-rare meat.
