I love this and use it alll of the time
Excellent dish! I used a little less than 2 lbs. of boneless sirloin, cut into very thin little pieces. This was enough to serve 5 easily. I used about 1/3 c. flour in a Ziploc bag and shook the beef until every piece was coated. I increased the salt, and I think it could have used a little more. I also added paprika and Emeril's Essence to the flour mixture. For the beef bouillon I used one 14 oz. can of beef broth and did not add additional liquid, except for the Worcestershire sauce as directed. After simmering on the stove for an hour, the beef was so tender it melted in our mouths. Tasted fabulous! And I didn't need to do the thickening trick with flour; the sauce was the perfect consistency. Really delicious and straight-forward approach to beef tips! I wanted to make beef stroganoff tonight but did not have sour cream, and honestly this was every bit as good as a rich & fattening stroganoff! Thanks for the recipe!
