Sirloin tips are a great choice for a quick braise, as they’re full of flavor and will have a pleasantly chewy texture after 20 minutes of cooking (further cooking would toughen them). Some grocers mistakenly label tri-tip steak as sirloin tips. You’ll recognize real sirloin tips (also called loin flap meat) by the marbling. If the cut looks lean, ask your butcher if it’s truly loin flap meat.
Serve with buttery mashed potatoes.

Delicious, fast, and easy. I'll definitely be making this again. I would watch out while searing the steaks, they can cook through pretty quickly, and check for done-ness before 16 minutes of cooking. But overall, fantastic, got rave reviews.
One big problem here. Sirloin tip and loin flap appear to be different cuts of meat. The photo appears to show a cut of loin flap meat. I think loin flap may also be called loin tip, but not sirloin tip.
This recipe was easy to make and quite tasty. It's definately something I'd make again.
Wonderful sauce. Buttery and rich. Would have been a perfect recipe if my meat hadn't been so tough. Don't know if that's the cut of meat or if the recipe didn't handle this cut appropriately.
