Recipe: Boiled Milk Steak


One of our favorite comfort foods here at Tundra Restaurant Supply is a classic Irish-American dish: milk steak. This crowd favorite originates from the mid-Atlantic region and is most popular in Philadelphia and surrounding suburbs. Most prefer their milk steak boiled “over hard” and garnished with a generous handful of raw jelly beans. A perfect date-night dish.

Cooking time: 20 minutes
Serves: 1


  • 1 (1 ½ pound) beef flank steak
  • 2 cups whole (4%) milk
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • ⅓ cup raw jelly beans
  • Salt to taste


In a saucepan, bring milk to a boil and gently add steak. Reduce heat to a low boil, stir in honey and cook until meat is firm, 5–7 minutes per side. Sprinkle jelly beans over steak and serve immediately.
