Ingredients That Elevate Your Culinary Experience

Before delving into the culinary dance, let’s acquaint ourselves with the ensemble of ingredients that contribute to the unparalleled taste of our Melt In Your Mouth Beef Tips:

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 lbs sirloin beef tips
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 white onion, diced
  • 8 oz sliced cremini mushrooms
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 beef bouillon cube
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 cup sliced pepperoncinis
  • 1 1/2 cups-2 cups beef stock
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Crafting Culinary Excellence: The Step-by-Step Guide

1. Perfectly Seasoned Beef

Begin the culinary journey by ensuring your sirloin beef tips are adorned with the right flavors. Season generously with salt and pepper and delicately coat each piece in all-purpose flour, creating a delightful crust when seared.

2. Searing Perfection

In a spacious skillet or the insert of your Instant Pot, embark on the searing process. Melt 3 tablespoons of butter over medium-high heat and sear the beef in batches until each piece achieves a tantalizing brown crust. Reserve the seared beef on a plate for the next stage.

3. Building Flavor Foundations with Onions

Introduce diced white onions into the skillet, cooking briefly for around 2 minutes. This not only infuses the dish with aromatic goodness but also ensures no flavor is left behind, scraping up those flavorful bits from the bottom with a wooden spoon.

Slow Cooker Marvel or Instant Pot Magic: Choose Your Culinary Path

For Slow Cooker Enthusiasts

  1. Transfer to Slow Cooker: Shift the seared beef and onions into your slow cooker.
  2. Add the Ensemble: Introduce sliced cremini mushrooms, garlic powder, onion powder, dried thyme, rosemary, bouillon cube, Worcestershire sauce, bay leaf, pepperoncinis, and 2 cups of beef stock.
  3. Cook to Perfection: Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours or low for 6-7 hours. For the final 30 minutes, whisk cornstarch into 3 tablespoons of water and add to the slow cooker. Season to taste and savor the culmination of flavors.

For Instant Pot Aficionados

  1. Reunite in the Instant Pot: Bring the seared beef back to the Instant Pot with the onions.
  2. Harmony of Ingredients: Add mushrooms, garlic powder, onion powder, dried thyme, rosemary, bouillon cube, Worcestershire sauce, bay leaf, pepperoncinis, and 1 1/2 cups of beef stock.
  3. Set and Forget: Cover and select the “Meat/Stew” setting, cooking on high pressure for 35 minutes. Once the cooking concludes, let the pressure release naturally for 10 minutes before switching to “venting” to release any remaining pressure.
  4. Final Flourish: Turn on the “Sauté” setting, stir in cornstarch mixed with 3 tablespoons of water into the cooking liquid. Allow the gravy to thicken, season to taste with salt and pepper, and relish in the perfection.
