ONE SKILLET SAVORY BEEF TIPS AND GRAVY

45 Shares

RECIPE NOTES AND HELPFUL TIPS

  • Purchase good quality beef tenderloin or steak
  • Look for mushrooms that are firm, free from blemishes, and have a smooth appearance. They should be dry to the touch but not dried out.
  • Always use wine of good quality.  In other words, one that you would enjoy a glass of.
  • Choose a red that is dry and medium to light-bodied.  Good choices are Merlot, Pinot Noir, or a Cabernet.
  • If the gravy becomes too thick upon simmering add a couple of tablespoons of beef broth to thin it out.
  • This recipe really calls for the wine and the mushrooms. Without both of them, it really is not quite as delicious.
