    what are beef tips?

    Wed Mar 20, 2013 10:39 pm Groupie
    A recipe I'm looking at for tomorrow night's dinner calls for beef tips but I'm not familiar with this. Is it a specific cut of meat? Or it just a question of buying a piece of beef and cutting it up?

    Advice will be much appreciated.

    I have to admit I had to look it up on the web - hope that you are happy with this answer as I did not know myself!

    Beef tips most often refers to tenderloin tips or sirloin tips. Obviously, these are two very different cuts, and will get very different results. To make matters even more confusing, these types of retail terms are not well standardized or regulated, and the reality is that a word like tips could mean just about anything.

    obviously a piece of good steak!

    Maybe this question should be in Q & A?

    But Joy, I also wondered. The term is unknown in South Africa. A beef fillet/tenderloin does taper at one end, but it will never be cut off and sold separately. (I usually fold that tip back, and tie it with string, so the fillet is the same thickness all over).

    I cannot think of any other beef cut which could be called "beef tips"! icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif
