Newbridge Style Steak Tips

"As weird as the marinade sounds it is soooooo good. You don't taste any one ingredient over the over. This recipe is a copy cat of a restaurant in Massachusetts that serves these. Preparation times does not include marinating overnight."

  1. This recipe was given to me by someone who had a relative that worked at the New Bridge Café. A lot of people think there is ketchup in the marinade, but it is actually chili sauce. The marinade ingredients must be in equal parts, and you must use regular Coca-Cola, not diet. The sugar in the soda helps tenderize the meat, and also adds flavor. <br/><br/> Ingredients: <br/><br/> 12 ounce bottle Wishbone Italian dressing <br/> 12 ounce bottle Coca-Cola<br/> 12 ounce bottle Heinz chili sauce<br/> 1 1/2 Cups cranberry juice <br/> 5 pounds beef tips<br/><br/> Directions: <br/><br/> Mix all marinade ingredients and place in a large zip lock bag with steak tips. Place in refrigerator and marinate for 8 hours or overnight. <br/><br/> Take meat out off the refrigerator at least an hour before cooking, to reach room temperature. <br/><br/> Grill, broil or bake to desired doneness.
  2. Thanks for putting this here. I have been looking for this information for years, as I don't get back to Boston very often to get the taste buds filled with this treat from the NewBridge Cafe. I found that your recipe was close to the original taste, but I remember the tips as being sweeter and thicker sauced. I added a 2 ounces of Honey to make it sweeter, but I am still stuck on the thicker part. Thanks again for this info!


I live in Southern Maine The Way Life Should Be with my husband of 30 years, 2 teenage kids and my dog a 130 pound Rottweiler lap dog! During the summer we stay across the street from Wells Beach in our small Maine Cottage and the rest of the year in our house in Lyman which is about 1/2 hour from President Bush's compound at Walkers Point in Kennebunkport. I have a great sense of humor and love to laugh. I love to cook. My pet peeve is people who have no manners; like saying please and thank you, etc. etc. and salespeople who chew gum! <br> <br><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting> <br><img src=> <br> <br><a href=><img border=0 src= alt=Visitor Map></a><a href=>Create your own visitor map!</a> <br><img src=> <br><img src=>
