New Bridge Steak Tips

I know this topic has been covered before, but I was looking for some new insight into the infamous New Bridge Steak Tip recipe. I have a new source that claims cranberry juice is the secret ingredient, along with Italian dressing, BBq and ketchup. I think proportions are key to this recipe and thus so hard to duplicate.

The saga continues for now....

  1. Is Moxie or Coca Cola is in the mix too.

      yup- I heard coca cola, not cranberry. Will probably never know for sure!

    2. The rumor I've heard is that the New Bridge's steak tip marinade includes catsup, Coca-Cola, and bottled Italian dressing, but I have no idea if that's true.

        I never seen more mystery surround a particular recipe before. simply amazing.

          I've never even had the tips at Newbridge, but I came across this website when searching for good marinades:

          http://www.hiddenboston.com/questions...

          It claims equal parts Italian dressing, Coke, and Ketchup. I've made tips this way several times and they always go over well. I also can't leave a recipe alone and usually tweak it by throwing in some garlic and Worcestershire sauce. Those flavors belong on tips in my opinion.

            Specifically from HB's blog:

            I am telling you when I say this that the Newbridge recipe is this.
            Equal parts:
            ketchup
            coke
            Italian dressing
            "I worked there for years".

              In sifting through the various theories behind this marinade on HiddenBoston.com is appears that the below recipe may correspond with the Lel's theory in this post of a mystery "green base" mixed with ketchup:

              I got a receipe for New Bridge years ago and didn't have soda or Italian dressing in it.
              I got this:
              Ketchup
              Lemon Juice
              Water
              Garlic
              Parsley
              Black Pepper.
              It tastes right.

            2. re: MC Slim JB

              thats the same recipe I was told- equal parts of each.

            3. Actually they use Chilli Sauce not ketchup... I use this marinade all the time... coke, chilli sauce and italian dressing....

              I would really love to get their salad dressing recipe, that is even more awesome than those delicious tips!

                I'm with you MB. What's in their salad dressing??

              2. I been using it for years, very simple recipe. BTW - here's a hint, no cranberry.

                  You've been using what recipe for years?

                    The marinade the OP is referring to!

                2. Does anyone know the recipe for the Quiet Man steak tips?

                  I heard it's italian dressing, brown sugar, garlic and soy sauce

                    I really miss the Quiet Man - very curious to see if the marinade can be reconstructed.
