Tonight I was in the mood for some good ‘ol comfort food. For me, that’s pretty much anything with mashed potatoes and gravy. In this case is was sirloin beef tips in a mushroom and onion gravy. So much yum. Happy tummy. Happy family.
Sirloin Beef Tips With Mushroom And Onion Gravy:
- salt and pepper
- garlic powder
- 6 tablespoons all purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- about 1 lb. sirloin steak, cut into large dice
- 1 medium/large onion, diced
- 6 tablespoons butter
- 8 oz.mushrooms, sliced
- 3/4 cup white wine
- 1 1/2 cup beef broth
- 3 tablespoons cornstarch
Mix the salt, pepper, and garlic powder together and combine with the flour. Heat the oil in a skillet. Dredge the steak pieces with the flour mixture. Saute onions and cook until it is softened. Add the butter to the pan and then add the steak and saute until medium rare, about a minute. Then add mushrooms and cook until mushrooms begin to color, then remove the meat, onions, and mushrooms to a platter and keep warm.
Deglaze the skillet with the wine, making sure to loosen any browned bits, and let it reduce a little. Add the beef broth and bring to a boil, then return the reserved meat and vegetables back to the pan and simmer, covered, for about 1 hour, or until the meat is tender.Mix the cornstarch with a little of the cooking liquid to make a paste and add it to the simmering broth. When the sauce is thickened, serve the tips with rice or mashed potatoes, and a vegetable of your choice.
