Beef Tips to die for...

I know I say this a lot... but truly... this is amazing!

I usually make only mushrooms this way but for my sister's birthday this past weekend I wanted to do something really special. So I decided to do the yummy caramelized mushrooms with beef tips.

The result is something that was so truly amazing that its one of those things that my tongue craves.

The beef tips were tender and the mushrooms had just enough firmness so it didn't feel mushy.

And the taste? Oh my word!

It was a delicious mix of the earthy mushrooms, with the tender beef that was caramelized with Marsala wine.

This is not a low fat

This is the easiest meal meal

And this meal will impress anyone...anyone.

A new guy, his friends, his family, your friends, your family, your boss,


What You Need

2 pounds Beef Tips

1 package Mushrooms

1 1/2 to 2 Sticks Unsalted Butter 3 cups Marsala wine

Salt and Pepper to taste

1/2 Tablespoons Corn Starch mixed with 1/4 cup water

What You Do

Melt the butter into the Marsala until nice and bubbly

Crack fresh black pepper and add salt

Add the beef and cook until medium rare

Add the mushrooms and cook until tender

Add the corn starch mixture a little at a time to thicken the sauce

I spooned it over baby red mashed potatoes. I just boiled them without skinning them and then mashed them with some salt and a sour cream.

We also had sauteed spinach and roasted asparagus!


To top this meal off

I got Tahitian Vanilla Bean ice cream

Any ice cream that comes in a plastic container that has a lid that screws on is amazing!

I picked out some Baklava from the bakery added a scoop of the vanilla bean

and tossed some chocolate all over it.

The perfect finish to the perfect dinner.

Happy Birthday Laura!!
