Beef Tips And Gravy
- 1 lb. stew beef or chuck roast
- salt and black pepper to taste
- 2 tbsp. cooking oil
- 1 small onion diced
- 2 tsp. worcestershire sauce
- 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
- 1 1/2 cup beef broth
- 2 tbsp. all purpose flour
- 1 cup cold water
Cut your beef up into cubes approximately 3/4 inches in size. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and set aside.
Heat oil in a large skillet or stew pot to medium high heat. Add the beef cubes and cook stirring constantly until beef is browned on all sides. Add the diced onion and cook for another minute and once again keep stirring.
Stir in the garlic powder and worcestershire sauce and then add in the beef broth. Reduce heat and simmer for 90 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until beef is fork tender. Don't be afraid to add some water if needed during the simmering process. When the beef is cooked, spoon it off to a side plate and keep warm. Mix the flour into the cold water until all lumps are gone and then pour it into the pan with the beef drippings. Heat to a simmer, making sure to stir up all the beef bits. Once the gravy has thickened add the beef tips back in and stir until they are nicely coated. Serve right away with you favorite veggie.
These versatile beef tips go great with pasta, rice, or potatoes, especially garlic mashed potatoes.
