What is Flap Steak? Who thought of flap steak as a name? Today, I am making Teriyaki Bourbon Flap Steak Tips over some hot Cowboy Charcoal on my grill. It is a tender delicious blend of steak tips and stir fry. But to make this recipe amazing, you first need to know what sirloin tips are and how to best make them.

What is Flap Steak?
Flap steak comes from the bottom sirloin beef. It is usually long, fatty and very thin. This is an excellent cut to substitute for skirt steak, flank steak or hanger steak recipes! It is traditionally pretty unique inside of the United States grilling culture. It, however, has been gaining tons of popularity lately because of its uniqueness and its size! Flap steak tastes good with soy sauce, pepper, and garlic.
How do you cook Flap Steak?
Traditionally, flap steak is first marinated (or not), seasoned and then grilled over the fire quickly. It is great for tacos, sandwiches and skewers. But what about for these Teriyaki Bourbon Flap Steak Tips with a hint of stir fry action? Let’s find out! Marinate the flap steak for at least 30 minutes.
The Teriyaki Bourbon Flap Steak Tips
In my recipe, I sliced the flap steak into thin pieces and then marinated them in teriyaki sauce, bourbon, mushrooms, onions and spices. This will allow the meat to absorb the flavor really quickly while creating a unique blend on sirloin tips and stir fry. Pulled out the wok, place it over some hot Cowboy Charcoal, and cooked the steak with veggies until the veggies were browned. Finally, I pulled the Teriyaki Bourbon Flap Steak tips out of the wok and placed them on the grill to finish. The flap steak cooking time is 30 minutes.
In the end, the crispy but tender steak tips can be added to rice with mushrooms and onions. It’s a fun twist on outdoor cooking!
