Are Beef Tips and Stew Meat the Same
Beef tips are usually the tender parts of the tenderloin top. Or they can be sirloin tips that come from larger roasts often sold as stew meat that is cut up pieces of beef in smaller packages. Beef tips is a more appetizing way to say stew meat.
Why We Love “Extra Tender” Beef Tips and Gravy
This is a relatively inexpensive meal for feeding your family and it is quite easy to prepare. Everyone in our family loves this recipe as it is hearty and delicious.
The meat is fork-tender, and the gravy is full-flavored without all the extra work. Just thicken the sauce and you have instant gravy.
What to do With Leftovers
Beef tips with gravy make for great leftovers. They will last in the refrigerator a full week when in an airtight container. Just reheat and enjoy.
This is a lovely recipe to make and freeze in airtight containers that are labeled.
