What else to do with beef tips?

I have several packages of beef stew meat and beef tips in the freezer.
Besides making stew, soup, or beef stroganoff, what else can I do with
them?

I start frying the meat, thinking I'm going to make something 'different' with it, but I always end up just combining it with noodles and making beef stroganoff.

What other things are good to mix with the meat to end up with a different dish?

Most 'authentic' chili recipes used cubed beef, not ground beef. Here's a Tex-Mex chili I posted also in Pazzo's topic 'Help, I'm leaving' topic -

TEX MEX CHILI

makes 5 cups

1T cumin seeds
1 ½ tsp. coriander seed
3T veg. oil
2T. Mex. oregano
3lb. beef chuck cubed
1 large onion
8 cloves garlic
5 jalapenos
3T masa harina
2T pasilla powder
1dried chipotle
2lb.tomatoes
1 bottle dark beer
1oz. unsweetened chocolate
4 cups chicken stock
1 dried New Mexico chile

Toast and grind cumin and coriander. In large pot, heat oil til very hot; brown meat in oil in batches til browned; remove from pot. Add onion, garlic, jalepenos, masa harina, pasilla powder, and cumin, coriander and oregano. Stir over medium high til onion begins to soften; return meat to skillet, add tomatoes, whole dried chiles, beer, chocolate, and stock. Simmer til meat is fork tender, about 1 ½ hours. Season with salt/pepper and remove whole chiles before serving.

Do you have a grill pan or gas grill? if not use your broiler.. get some skewers and make beef kebabs... use the beef chunks with onion, green pepper, zucchini, or anything you like.. then make a really great dipping sauce..

Here is a good recipe:

Fajita Kebabs:

1 1/2 lbs beef tips
2 bell peppers--1 green and 1 yellow, cut into 1"chunks
1 cup pearl onions peeled
1/2 cup prepared olive oil vinaigrette salad dressing
1/4 cup prepared mustard
1/4 cup hot sauce
2 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp garlic powder
flour or corn tortillas
sour cream
chopped tomatoes
shredded cheddar

Thread meat, peppers and onions alternately onto metal skewers. Place skewers in shallow glass dish. To prepare marinade, combine salad dressing, mustard, hot sauce and seasonings in small bowl; mix well. Pour marinade over skewers, turning to coat evenly. Cover and marinate in refrigerator for at least 15 min..but even better if you leave it for 3-4 hours.

Place skewers on grid, reserving marinade. Grill over hot coals 15 min or until beef is med-rare, turning and basting often with marinade. (Do not baste during the last 5 min of cooking.) To serve, remove meat and vegies from skewers. Place in tortillas and top with sour cream, chopped tomatoes, or shredded cheddar.

If you are using your broiler: Prepare kebabs as directed. Place on broiler pan 4-6" from heat...15-20 min.... until meat is med-rare or desired doneness and vegies are crisp/tender........turning and brushing occasionally with marinade.
