What are beef tips?

Beef tips is another word for Small pieces of beef Which are cut from different parts of the cow, e.g Sirloin, tenderloin or chuck steak. It is usually cut into bite-sized pieces and is a favorite ingredient in stews and stir-fries because it is flavorful, tender, and cooks relatively quickly compared to larger cuts of beef.

advice: When cooking beef tips on the stovetop, it is best to use a more tender cut of beef such as sirloin, sirloin, rib, or tenderloin. Tougher cuts of beef, such as roast beef, rump roast, and brisket, are ideal for lower and slower cooking (such as a slow cooker).

Place the ingredients needed to prepare the beef tips and stock aside in individual serving bowls.

How to Make Beef Tips and Gravy

1. To start, cut the meat into 1-inch cubes and use paper towels to pat it dry. Season the beef generously with salt and black pepper.

2. Using a large pot or Dutch oven, heat 1-2 tablespoons olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the cubed beef and cook for 8-10 minutes, or until browned. Once done, remove the beef from the pot (along with the juices) and set aside. advice: If necessary, use a little beef stock to deglaze the bottom of the pot, scraping up any browned bits stuck to the bottom.

3. Over medium heat, in the same pot, add the chopped garlic and the remaining spoon of olive oil. Fry for 30 seconds or until fragrant. Add Worcestershire sauce, dry onion soup mix, bay leaf, and thyme to the bowl. Stir well and cook for another 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
