    This recipe is amazing! The BOMB dot com!! All of THAT! I don't cook because most recipes are a disaster or the serving size is too big or it takes too long. I'm cooking for one and I don't want to slave over a hot stove all day for one. Sometimes, its just not worth it. But this recipe was easy to reduce, prepare, and cook! AND DEVOUR! Satisfied my craving for beef tips and rice!!! Locked in my recipe memory. Now to find a man to cook for. LOL!

    We loved this. I didn't coat the steak with flour, I just threw it in the pan. I cooked it with the onions, peppers and garlic and then drained the broth. I then followed the rest of the recipe as written. I made rice and egg noodles as hubby doesn't like rice. I loved it with rice and everyone else liked it with egg noodles. I only cooked mine for thirty minutes and it was so tender. Will be making again.

    Had all the ingredients except the green bell pepper so I substituted some small pieces of red b pepper I had saved. It was very good but I believe the green b pepper would have been the difference between 4 or 5 stars. Will make this again for sure!

    Sub water for beef broth. Gives it a better taste and more flavor..

    This recipe is perfect exactly as written! I did take out the bell peppers the second time around (I love they hate peppers.) I subbed the water with beer. Oh my word my guy tore it in half!!

<p><br /><br />The picture is of me and my husband at the Grand Canyon - November 2008. <br /><br />I've just started a food blog and would love for those interested in cooking and recipes to check it out. You can follow my food journey at <a href=></a></p> <p>Cooking for family and friends is one of my favorite things to do. I spend most of my free time in the kitchen, either checking out Recipezaar or experimenting with a newly found recipe. <br /><br />My DH and I are both from Texas and we both come from Italian families. Anyone who stops by my house should be prepared to eat!!! I'm always forcing friends and family to try whatever it is that just came out of the oven. I know that is a horrible habit but I can't break it... I think it must be the Italian in me! LOL :) <br /><br />My sister (<a href=>Cookin_Kit</a>) and I used to help my Mom (<a href=>JudaThann</a>) in the kitchen a lot growing up. I guess that is where my love for cooking began. I also enjoy sharing the kitchen with my DH (<a href=>Sgt. Pepper</a>). He doesn't cook as often as he did when we first got married, but he makes an awesome pizza and still makes them at least twice a month. He keeps his recipes for the dough and the sauce top secret, even from me. LOL <br /><br />I have two step-children. The oldest graduated from college and the youngest is a sophomore at Texas Tech. I also have two cats and a dog. When I?m not cooking or hanging out here at Zaar, I like to knit, garden, read, watch old movies, travel, take photos, scrapbook, volunteer at a non-kill animal shelter, and spend time with my family and friends. <br /><br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><br />I'm a co-host with <a href=>Karen From Colorado</a> in the <a href=>Mexican/Tex-Mex/Southern United States Cooking Forum</a>.
