First of all, there is NO reason to cook this for 2 hours!!! In fact, I think the beef was LESS salty because I didn't cook it for so long. DON'T ADD THE SALT. It's just not necessary... and I am a certified saltaholic! I'm not sure that this recipe really needs the Worcestershire, or maybe just not as much. I also added a bayleaf and used fresh garlic (and plenty of it). Instead of diluting the gravy mix with a full cup of water, I only used half a cup and I also blended in a tablespoon of cornstarch with the gravy mix before adding it to the beef. I wouldn't use flour. I'd stick with cornstarch. Flour should actually be fully cooked or it can taste too, well, floury. Cornstarch can safely be added just before serving. I served this over mashed pototates. It was good.


My meat&potatoes husband couldn't get enough. However - I did make some adjustments. Coated beef w/ flour, then sauteed.. added 2 Tbsp minced garlic w/ the onions instead of garlic powder. 1.75 cup beef broth, 1/4c red wine. Did not add any salt or pepper. Simmered 1 hour. Then added the brown gravy directly to the beef (no extra liquid!) and simmered an additional 30 minutes while I made mashed potatoes to put it over. It ended up DELICIOUS! A tad bit salty, but we like salt. Use some Pillsbury Grands to sop up the extra sauce and it was perfection. Follow these steps and you will avoid the problems that keep coming up - overly salty (no salt, low sodium soy), too runny (no extra water at end), meat too tough (1.5hrs, at the most!).

My husband asks for this all the time. I like to use fresh mushrooms and garlic instead of canned mushrooms and garlic powder. I just saute the mushrooms, garlic and onions with a little butter and olive oil before I add the meat to the pan. Using fresh mushrooms and garlic really makes a big difference. I also like to use only 3/4 cup of water and I add 1/4 cup red wine. About 15 minutes before I add the gravy mixture, I like to add about 1 cup of frozen peas to the beef tips. At the end when I add in the gravy mixture I usually use a little less than one cup of water and add some flour or cornstarch to thicken it up a little more. This is great served over egg noodles or rice.
