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.
