The tender meat is deliciously paired with creamy gravy to create the dinner of your dreams. Beef Tips make for a hearty and mouthwatering meal! Here’s our tip: you should make these!


Ingredients

2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
2 pounds chuck or stew meat, cubed
salt, to taste
pepper to taste
1 onion, chopped
10 1/2 ounces beef broth
10 1/2 ounces French onion soup
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 bay leaf
3 tablespoons cornstarch mixed with 1/3 cup cold water, optional, for thickening the gravy
mashed potatoes, optional, cooked, for serving

Directions

Step 1

Using a large pot or a Dutch oven, heat up 1 tablespoon of the olive oil over a medium-high temperature.

Step 2

Season the beef with the salt and pepper.

Step 3

Add the meat into the pot, cooking it in small batches and removing it when the beef is browned and tender, about 5 minutes for each cube. Set the meat aside.

Step 4

Reduce the heat to medium.

Step 5

Add in the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil and the onion and cook until the onion has completely softened, about 7-10 minutes.

Step 6

Add the cooked beef, beef broth, French onion soup, Worcestershire sauce, and the bay leaf into the large pot.

Step 7

Bring the mixture to a boil.

Step 8

Cover the pot and reduce the heat.

Step 9

Allow the mixture to simmer until the beef is tender and juicy, about 1 1/2-2 hours.

Step 10

Taste the gravy for seasoning and for thickness. If the gravy is too thin, add the cornstarch mixture a little at a time until it reaches the desired consistency.

Step 11

Remove and discard the bay leaf.

Step 12

Serve the dish over mashed potatoes.
