Beef Essentials: Beef Tips

Andy Anderson !


The other day I made about 20 dinners featuring this recipe for my clients. Some were with tatters, some with rice, and others with egg noodles. I was so swamped that I did not have time to take my usual photos… my bad.

Anyway, this is a really good way to make beef tips, they are tender and tasty.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

  4. Gather your ingredients (mise en place).
  5. Add the oil and butter to a skillet over medium heat.

    When the butter melts, give the pan a swirl and add the chopped onions.

    Cook until translucent and soft, about 3 – 4 minutes.

    Add the garlic and mix with the onions until fragrant, about 60 seconds.

    Add the beef, and cook, browning on all sides, about a minute or so on each side.

    Add the stock, Worcestershire and tamari or liquid aminos.

    Bring up to a boil and then reduce to a simmer.

    Cover and simmer for about 2 hours.

    Whisk the flour into the brown gravy, add it to the skillet, and simmer until it thickens, about an additional 15 minutes.

    While it is simmering add seasonings, to taste.
  7. Serve over mash taters, rice, or egg noodles. Enjoy.
  8. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
