Beef Tips

A flavorful and hearty dish, beef tips in rich mushroom gravy provides a satisfying meal. Gravies and sauces served over food dates to 200 CE and the Romans. They were originally used to disguise the unpleasant taste of food that wasn’t fresh. Today, gravies and other sauces enhance foods with their flavorful ingredients that impart a rich and savory taste. Beef tips can be made from stew meat or high-quality tenderloin cut into bite-size pieces, as in this recipe. Serve over rice, egg noodles, or mashed potatoes for a classic meal.
