Y'all, I'm married to the cutest man on the planet.  I really am.  For the most part he's a simple man.  Give him meat and potatoes with the occasional side of peas and he's a happy camper.  That's why this recipe for Beef Tips with Mushroom Gravy is right up his alley.  Hearty beef, creamy gravy, tender mushrooms, it doesn't get any better than that right!?!  Well, I would 100% agree with you except this recipe was inspired by his second great passion in life, World of Warcraft!

You see my husband is a LONG TIME World of Warcraft player, and last year he bought me this World of Warcraft Official Cookbook as a sort of gag gift.  I hadn't really played with it much, until the other day when he was turning through the pages and found this recipe for Sliced Zangar Buttons.  He specifically requested them and who am I to turn down the love of my life.  I did, however, put my own Kitchen Wife touch on it and I can't wait to share it with you so...

Let's Get Started!

For this Beef Tips with Mushroom Gravy Recipe you are going to need a few simple ingredients.

  • 1.5 lb of Steak, cut into cubes
  • 1 8oz. carton of Baby Bella Mushrooms, sliced
  • 1.5c Beef Broth
  • 5 Tbsp Butter
  • 3 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Dried Thyme
  • 1 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1/3 tsp Ground Black Pepper
  • 2 Tbsp All Purpose Flour
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • Chopped Chives, to top with
To begin you'll want to sit your steak out about 30 minutes before you cook it to allow it to come to room temperature.  This helps the steak to cook evenly. 

You will also need to cut the steak into bite-sized pieces.

For this recipe I used 2 filets because I wanted this to be a special meal for my special guy, but you can use any cut of meat that you like.  Just remember, the better the cut the better the flavor and a dish like this is a great way feed a lot of people luxury cuts on a budget.

Season the steak with salt and pepper.

Then, place a pan over medium high heat and add 2 Tbsp of the olive oil and 2 Tbsp of the butter.  Allow the pan to get HOT, like SMOKIN' HOT!

Next, add the beef tips and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.  This will give you beautiful, medium cooked, beef tips.

After 5 minutes remove the beef tips from the pan, and sit to the side.

Now it's time to add the sliced mushrooms to the pan.
Cook for five minutes until all the fat from the pan has been absorbed.

Now you will add the rest of the butter,

Along with the salt, pepper, garlic powder, and thyme.

Stir everything together and cook the mushrooms for another 7 minutes, stirring occasionally.

After 7 minutes remove the mushrooms from the pan as well.

You should now have all these flavorful pan dripping to make your gravy in.

Add the flour to the pan.

Whisk the flour into the fat drippings in the pan and cook for about a minute.
This will get rid of that raw flour taste.

Now add the beef broth to the pan while whisking vigorously.

Keep whisking until the gravy is nice and smooth, with no lumps.

Whisk in the Worcestershire sauce and let simmer until it thickens.

Return the beef tips and mushrooms to the pan.

Stir everything together and your Beef Tips with Mushroom Gravy is finished!

OH...MY...GOODNESS!  Would you look at that!  WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT!?!  I honestly don't think I have seen a more stunning pan of beef and gravy in all of my life.  I topped everything with the chopped chives for a little onion flavor and freshness and now we can eat!

I served these Beef Tips with Mushroom Gravy over a bed of fluffy brown rice and with a side of steamed broccoli.  It was absolutely amazing and Studhubs is already requesting them again.  Not to mention he was tickled to death that I made a meal from this very special cookbook.  I know you're going to love this one so get in the kitchen and give it a try tonight!

And as always...

Happy Reading, Happy Eating, and Happy Living,
