Beef Tips and Gravy

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 lbs (680g) beef sirloin or stew meat, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Season the beef pieces with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. In a large skillet or Dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.
  3. Add the beef pieces to the skillet in a single layer, making sure not to overcrowd the pan. Cook the beef in batches if necessary. Brown the beef on all sides, about 5-7 minutes. Remove the beef from the skillet and set aside.
  4. In the same skillet, add the chopped onion and cook until softened, about 3-4 minutes.
  5. Add the minced garlic to the skillet and cook for an additional 1 minute, until fragrant.
  6. Return the browned beef to the skillet with the onions and garlic.
  7. In a small bowl, mix together the beef broth and Worcestershire sauce. Pour the mixture over the beef in the skillet.
  8. Bring the mixture to a simmer, then reduce the heat to low. Cover the skillet and let the beef simmer for 1-1 1/2 hours, or until the beef is tender.
  9. In a small bowl, mix together the flour and water to create a slurry.
  10. Stir the flour slurry into the beef mixture in the skillet, stirring constantly. Cook for an additional 5-10 minutes, or until the gravy has thickened.
  11. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper if necessary.
  12. Serve the beef tips and gravy hot, garnished with chopped fresh parsley if desired.
  13. Enjoy your delicious homemade Beef Tips and Gravy served over mashed potatoes, rice, or noodles!

This comforting dish is perfect for a cozy dinner at home, and it’s sure to become a family favorite.
