Wondering how to prepare Beef Tips and Noodles for a comforting meal? This classic dish combines tender beef with savory gravy and egg noodles for a delightful experience. Here’s a step-by-step guide to making this delicious recipe.
Begin by placing onion and 1 1/2 tablespoons of butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add salt and sugar, stirring constantly for about 25 minutes until browned. Deglaze the pan with a splash of red wine, scraping off any browned bits from the bottom. Set the caramelized onions aside.
For the next step, reduce the heat to medium and add remaining oil and onion to the skillet. Cook until softened, about 10 minutes. Incorporate beef broth, soup, Worcestershire sauce, and a bay leaf. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until the beef is fork tender.
To thicken the gravy, mix cornstarch with cold water and add it to the pot. Meanwhile, in a casserole dish, combine condensed soup, soup mix, mushrooms, and water. Add beef tips, ensuring they are well coated, and bake for 1 hour.
While the beef tips are cooking, boil a large pot of lightly salted water. Add noodles and cook until al dente, then drain. For the gravy, create a slurry with cold water and cornstarch, and add it to the skillet, stirring continuously.
Once the beef is tender, it’s time to make the gravy. Mix beef broth with flour, turn up the heat, and pour this mixture into the pot, stirring constantly. Bring it to a boil to thicken the gravy.
