Beef Tips with Red Wine Sauce~

Last night called for a quick easy meal, and after the latter half of the week I was craving some comfort food.  I had to have some tests run, and will have to return for what I hope is the final one on Monday morning.

This recipe is super easy to prepare!

Beef Tips with Red Wine Sauce~


Ingredients:

Grass Fed Beef Tips (we used about a pound-feeds approximately3-4)
Flour (we use Gluten Free)
Salt
Freshly Cracked Pepper (we used a tricolor mix)
Minced Garlic (we purchase in a jar for convenience)
Oil (we use olive oil for cooking)
Red Wine (Merlot works best, but whatever you have on hand)
Beef Stock (broth will work too)

***You can adjust this recipe for the number you are feeding quite easily.  This makes enough for about 3-4.

In a large Ziploc bag place the beef tips.  Sprinkle enough flour to coat the meat.  Add salt and pepper to taste (we use about a TBS of each).  Shake to combine and coat.

In a large saute pan, drizzle oil to coat and add minced garlic to taste (we like garlic so I add about a TBS or so).  Heat on medium-high heat until garlic starts to sizzle. Add the beef tips.  Continue cooking until they are browned.  Add about a cup of wine and a cup of the stock-enough to cover the beef tips.  Stir to coat, reduce heat and let simmer 20-30 mintues.  The longer you let it simmer the more tender the beef tips will be.  The sauce will also thicken as it cooks down.

We serve ours over rice.

I told you, easy peasy!!! You can also add in some cut up root vegetables and cook a bit longer for a complete meal.

Enjoy!
