Cooking steaks

SO since hubby has most all but 2 of his top teeth out, I am trying to cook things that he can still eat, He is a meat eater, he just loves his meat , tonight I am making beef sirloin tips (hopefully extremely tender ones) that will break apart without much effort.

I also want them to be full of flavor and juicy, so I started looking online for ideas, one that I found interesting is using coca cola (soda) along with other things to allow it to soak as a marinade, I did not have brown sugar as it suggested, I replace it with white sugar.

So it sitting in the covered container soaked in coca cola, sugar, sea sat and avacado marinade in my refrigerator, now what I need to know the best way to cook it ? pan fry, oven ? times temperatures? any suggestions?this needs to be very tender.

I was just thinking of those strips of beef you get in Chinese food. I hope Hubby enjoyed his meal.

Miss steaks. The first meal my husband prepared for me (on a date befor we were married) was steak with mushroom gravy, rice and broccoli. But because of his health condition we now avoid beef. Every once in a while, I taste a sample at the grocery store. Really miss the boneless short ribs. Avoid beef because I don't want to tempt my husband to eat it. The things we do for love. :)

I would brown good in a pan then boil until tender. That is how I start mine for soup. By the time they have boiled for a little while most can be smashed around with your tongue

My husband has very few teeth left too. We tend to cook our beef in the slow cooker (crockpot) as that makes it very tender and very tasty. He can manage that fine. Both steak pieces and braising steak take about 5 hours in the slow cooker, on "high".

I never heard of marinating steak in Coca cola, but it sounds interesting.

Hope you used only a little sugar as Coca cola is full of sugar.

I have a friend who now has a complete upper and a complete lower denture. Yet while he still had zero teeth (yes, zero teeth), he regularly ate steak.
