Red Wine Braised Beef Tips

Red Wine Braised Beef Tips is hands down a show-stopper dinner that is hassle-free! Beef stew meat are lightly coated in flour and sautéd until browned. Then, in goes the red wine and balsamic vinegar! The beef is nestled back into the sauce with fresh herbs and braised low and slow until fall-apart tender. Your house will smell amazing and your dinner plates will be licked clean. This recipe is perfect for the holiday season!

I just can’t get over how much I love this dish! You only have to put in a little bit of work, then you just cover the pot and let it work it’s magic! When I was making this recipe, I kept sending pictures to John and saying, “I wish you could smell this right now.” IT’S AMAZING. We ate leftovers of this for 3 nights straight and didn’t even care because it was so good. 

If you are like me, you going “what the heck are beef tips?” Well, after some research and talking with my local butcher, beef tips are essentially just stew meat. But, some people also use cubed sirloin too. So, you can either use stew meat or cubed sirloin, either way, it’s going to be delicious!

Braising the meat low and slow in the red wine and balsamic sauce not only infuses loads of flavor, but makes the meat so gosh darn tender. You won’t even need to have knives at the table. 

Not only is this dish decadently delicious, but it really doesn’t require too much work! All you have to do is brown the beef, sauté some onions, pour in all the goods and then cover and walk away. Literally, walk away because the urge to open the lid will be real. But don’t touch it! You want to keep the braising liquid going until it’s perfectly tender. 

To me, this recipe screams Christmas, holiday or date night. But, it’s great for any occassion! You can feed a crowd with this recipe, or have leftovers for two. Either way, it’s bound to become a new favorite. 

I love to serve this with my Herbed Mushroom Risotto and Super Simple Garlic Bread. Talk about a dream team!

Description

Red Wine Braised Beef Tips is hands down a show-stopper dinner that is hassle-free! Beef stew meat are lightly coated in flour and sautéd until browned. Then, in goes the red wine and balsamic vinegar! The beef is nestled back into the sauce with fresh herbs and braised low and slow until fall-apart tender. Your house will smell amazing and your dinner plates will be licked clean. This recipe is perfect for the holiday season!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 pounds beef stew meat, cut into 1 to 2 inch chunks
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large onion, cut into slices
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups red wine
  • 3/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 32 oz beef stock
  • 3 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 5 sprigs fresh thyme

Instructions

  1. Evenly coat all the beef stew meat with the flour on all sides. In a large Dutch oven or stock pot, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat. Working in batches, add in enough beef stew meat to evenly coat the bottom of the pan and sauté until browned on all sides. Remove the first batch and add in the next, repeating this process until all the meat has been browned and set aside, making sure to not burn the bottom of the pan (reduce the heat if so).
  2. Add in the last tablespoon of olive oil into the pot and add in the onion, salt and pepper. Sauté for a couple minutes, then add the red wine into the bottom of the pan to deglaze the pan. Add in the balsamic vinegar and beef stock.
  3. Nestle the beef back into the sauce and bring to a simmer. Add the fresh herbs on top, cover with a lid, reduce the heat to low and allow to braise on low heat for 2 hours. After 2 hours, remove the lid and allow to simmer for another 30 minutes or so or until the sauce has reduced and thickened.
  4. To serve, remove the herb sprigs and onions if desired. Serve the beef with the sauce. Enjoy!

Notes

  • If you are wanting to make this in the slow cooker, I would still brown the meat before adding it into the slow cooker and pouring all the rest of the ingredients in to cover. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Remove the lid and allow to cook on high for 30 minutes to let the sauce thicken.
  • I used a full-bodied red wine that had some fruity/chocolate undertones but wasn’t sweet. Any red wine that isn’t sweet will do!
  • I like to serve mine with the onions on the side just because it looks “cleaner”. Also, if there are people who don’t like onions, you don’t have to worry about it. The onions also get quite mushy, so you gotta really love onions haha.

    This is so good! Extremely rich, but if served with mashed potatoes or polenta/grits, it’s amazing!
