After some initial tests, we figured out how to make a steak tips with gravy recipe in one skillet. Relatively inexpensive sirloin tips, with plentiful internal marbling for tenderness, proved ideal. We added dried porcini to our steak tip recipe for extra mushroom flavor and used the moisture from deeply browned mushrooms and onions to make a delicious sauce. A sprinkle of flour thickened our rich, lump-free gravy, and minced garlic and woodsy thyme finished the sauce in our steak tip recipe.

Steak tips, also known as flap meat, are sold as whole steak, cubes, and strips. To ensure evenly sized chunks, we prefer to purchase whole steak tips and cut them ourselves. If you can only find cubes or strips, reduce the cooking time slightly to avoid overcooking any smaller or thinner pieces. Cremini mushrooms can be used in place of the white mushrooms. Our preferred brand of beef broth is Pacific. Serve over rice or egg noodles.
