Dana, this was delicious! It was very easy to prepare, smelled great while it was simmering, and my family of 3 ate the WHOLE thing. I made a few little changes: used lots of fresh garlic instead of the powder (I sauteed it with the onion), dusted the beef in flour before browning (just a personal preference) and used just 2T of soy & 2T of worcestershire and made up the liquid difference with 1/4 cup red wine (Merlot). I added some mushrooms, too. It was absolutely fantastic with lots of tender beef and tasty gravy. I will be making this a lot; thanks for posting it!

I also used red wine and fresh garlic in this recipe. It was an excellent meal and I will for sure be making it again...often. Alicia also loved it. Thanks Dana

Dana, EXCELLENT! I also used fresh garlic cooked with the onion. WE LOVED THIS! Goes great with broccoli! We did use 2 cups of water.

My DH loved this recipe. He called it a "man's meal." I thought it was very good also and will definitely make it again. The only thing I will change is to perhaps add more water to the meat mixture as it cooks because I think that it has a little too much concentrated beef taste.

You have a major hit hear. This dish is very easy to prepare yet taste like you spent all day. The only thing I did different is use low sodium ingredients. My daughter who was on her way out and very rarely eats red meat was absolutely drooling. Hubby thought it was great and told me to give Dana the gold. LOL I told him it was stars! Thanks we will do this often!

Thanks Dana, DH really enjoyed this one. I also added some fresh garlic & a liitle red wine. Easy and with great flavour. Served it with coleslaw and microwaved jacket potatoes topped with sour cream. :)

Mmm hmmm. Yeah baby - you got my "secret winning" combo sauce in this recipe: Beef, soy sauce & Worcestershire sauce - right there I knew this was going to be a winner. The garlic and gravey was "the icing on the cake" so to speak.

Beef tips with a savory sauce that is out of this world, served over noodles......nothing could be better! The sauce that the beef is cooked in was absolutely divine. The ingredients used certainly belong together in the same pot. They complimented each other and the beef. My beef came out very tender. The aroma was almost too much (Well,I did have to keep doing the "chef's taste test" LOL). This beef tips recipe goes into the tried and true book. Thanks, Dana for another of your wonderful recipes.

This was very good, although I think it would have been better if I hadn't cooked it so long. Cooking it longer than Dana suggested concentrated the soy sauce, which made it too salty (and I even used reduced sodium soy)--otherwise the beef was tender & delicious, and I also added some mushrooms. Served over wide egg noodles with a nice salad - yummy! Thanks, Dana! -M :-)

Thanks Dana for a great recipe! The aroma while cooking...to die for! I made it in the crockpot, and when we came home, the aroma..WoW! I followed along and added the fresh garlic, mushrooms and wine (in our house those three are staples for everything!) We were so anxious to eat this that we almost ran into the house and raced each other for the kitchen! There wasn't a drop left! This is a real "keeper"!
