Melt In Your Mouth Beef Tips with Mushroom Gravy

There are few dinners that are more comforting and delicious than beef that’s been slow-cooked until it falls apart at the touch of a fork. And if you add in a salty, savory mushroom gravy? Well, nothing else even has a chance of competing with that. That’s the ultimate comfort food meal right there, especially if you pair it with mashed potatoes. But a whole roast can be a little pricy and give you more food than you really need, so it doesn’t always make sense for your average dinner.

You know what does? Beef tips. They’re very economical but they’re also a tough cut that stands up well to slow-cooking so the end results are super tender, and here they’re simmered in an amazing beefy, mushroom sauce that relies on a few things you have in your pantry but no shortcut ingredients like canned soup or flavor packets. That means this tastes like true homemade comfort, and there’s nothing better.
