Beef Tips (stew beef)
Here's how I do mine Raindrop,
Cut into 1" cubes then toss in some flour that has been seasoned with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
Heat some oil in a pot and saute on all sides. Add enough water to cover by an inch (at this point be sure and loosen the bits that have stuck to the bottom of the pot - they add tremendous flavor) or so and enough beef boullion (sometimes I do 1/2 beef and 1/2 chicken) to flavor water. But don't overdo it as it will become more flavorful while the meat cooks. Once tips are tender and falling apart then re-season broth. That's it - then you can finely chop for your husband and serve with rice, mashed potatoes, or egg noodles.
I usually use beef broth mixed with water versus beef beef or chicken boullion - Campbell's French Onion Soup makes a good base too!!! You can also add some red wine and small carmelized onions for a more "bourguignon" type dish but much simpler!
