Ingredients for Tender Beef Tips

Beef Tips: Beef tips are usually the tender parts of the tenderloin top. They can also be sirloin tips that come from larger roasts often sold as ‘stew meat’ or, in this case, ‘beef tips.’ Cubed chuck roast is great in this recipe too.

Seasonings: The seasonings are simple, with onion, bay leaf, and Worcestershire sauce. If desired, you can add a couple of minced garlic cloves when cooking the onions.

Gravy: The beef tips are cooked in a combination of beef broth and onion soup. Once cooked, the mixture is thickened with a cornstarch slurry.
