Beef Tips with Gravy

Tonight we had probably the most delicous beef tips that either of us have ever had. The recipe came from I modified it slightly to adjust taste. We had it over extra-wide egg noodles and a dinner salad. This was so good that we ate two-thirds of the platter. As you can see by the picture, fairly good size plate. I hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed eating it.

Beef Tips and Gravy

2 pounds cubed beef chuck; 1-inch cubes
2 onion, chopped
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
2 cups water
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon garlic
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground pepper
1 package brown gravy mix
1 cup water
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 cup cold water


1. In a large skillet, heat oil over high heat.

2. Saute the onion until translucent.

3. Add stew meat and cook on high heat until meat is browned on all sides (3-5 minutes). Pour 2 cups water, soy sauce, and worcestershire sauce into the skillet.
4. Stir in garlic powder, salt and pepper.

5. Bring to boil and reduce heat.

6. Cover and simmer for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

7. Then combine the gravy mix with 1 cup of water, mix thoroughly and stir into the meat. Bring to boil, stirring frequently until it slightly thickens.
8. Right before serving, if still thin, mix 2 tablespoons cornstarch and cold water. Add to beef gravy and bring to boil. Thicken.

9. Serve over egg noodles.
