Shallots and onions make a base for a rich gravy to coat each morsel of beef. I’m not a traditional gravy lover, but this brown sauce is amazing!

We typically use beef that we raise on the farm. I also like to purchase Certified Angus Beef at the grocery store which supports other family farms and ranches. I recently shared more about beef ranches and the sustainability of beef in my Cream Cheese & Beef Stuffed Shells recipe.

Tips & Tricks

  • Use kitchen shears or a very sharp knife to cut steak into 3/4″ pieces
  • Cut steak tips into evenly sized pieces for even cooking
  • Remove and discard any large strips of fat
  • Smaller pieces of steak allow for more flavorful coating on the outside
  • White mushrooms may be used, but we prefer baby Bella mushroom slices for a heartier, deeper flavor. 
  • Have all ingredients chopped, sliced and sitting by the stove when you begin this recipe as it will move quickly at some points
  • I like to use a Keurig coffee maker to heat water and stir Better than Bouillon into the hot water to make my broth.
  • Have a wooden spoon handy and be prepared to stir the skillet often.

How to Make Beef Tips with Gravy

Cut sirloin steak or other lean cut of beef into 3/4″ inch cubes.

Coat a non-stick skillet with cooking spray and turn to medium-high heat. Brown beef tips on all sides. Turn often until all sides are brown.

Once gravy has thickened add steak bites back to the skillet. Stir into gravy and cook until warmed through.
