Beef Tips



2 lbs beef tips or stew meat
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups beef broth
1 cup red wine (optional, can substitute with additional beef broth)
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon dried rosemary
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup water
Salt and pepper to taste
Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)


Heat olive oil in a large skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat.
Add the beef tips and brown on all sides, about 5-7 minutes. Remove the beef from the skillet and set aside.
In the same skillet, add the chopped onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the minced garlic and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
Stir in the beef broth, red wine (if using), Worcestershire sauce, dried thyme, and dried rosemary. Bring the mixture to a boil.
Return the beef tips to the skillet, reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, or until the beef is tender.
In a small bowl, whisk together the flour and water until smooth. Gradually stir this mixture into the skillet to thicken the gravy.
Cook for an additional 5-10 minutes, or until the gravy has thickened to your desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Garnish with chopped fresh parsley before serving.
