Ingredients

Dutch oven beef tips ingredients in glass bowls
  • olive oil or vegetable oil
  • beef stew meat – chuck roast is my favorite for stew
  • spices: seasoned salt (like Lawry’s), salt, black pepper, white pepper, garlic powder, onion powder
  • all-purpose flour
  • onion
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • beef broth
  • water
  • cornstarch

Step by step

  1. Toss the beef stew meat in a mix of salt, black pepper, white pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and seasoned salt until fully coated. Then, add flour and toss again.
  2. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over high heat. Add the beef, reduce to medium heat, and sear on all sides. Remove from the pot and set aside.
  3. In the same pot, add diced onions and use a wooden spoon to scrape off those flavorful brown bits.
  4. Add Worcestershire sauce, beef broth, and the water and cornstarch mixture. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently.
  5. Once boiling, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook for one hour. Stir every 8-10 minutes.

If you can not stay at the stove to stir every 8-10 mins omit the cornstarch and only add the water during the hour of cooking, then in the last 10 minutes, bring the sauce to a boil and add a slurry (1/3 cup water and 1 tablespoon of corn starch) to thicken up the gravy, stirring frequently so it doesn’t stick.

Tips for Best Results

  • Let the meat brown properly for maximum depth of flavor.
  • Stir regularly to prevent sticking and ensure even cooking.
  • If the gravy is too thick, add a bit more broth or water.

Variations

Try adding some mushrooms for an earthy flavor, or throw in some carrots and potatoes to make it a complete meal.

You can also experiment with different spices, fresh herbs like thyme or roasemary, or even a splash of red wine for added depth.

Serving suggestions

Looking for ways to serve your Dutch oven beef tips? Here are my favorite ways to enjoy this hearty dish:

  • serve over mashed potatoes, perfect for soaking up all that delicious, flavorful gravy
  • pair with plain or garlic rice for a simple and satisfying combo that lets the flavors shine
  • add roasted vegetables, which bring color and extra nutrition to your plate with a side of roasted carrots, potatoes, or green beans
  • serve alongside a fresh veggie salad, balancing the rich beef tips with a light, crisp salad for a well-rounded meal

Storage

Store any leftover beef tips and gravy in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat on the stovetop or the microwave. Add a splash of water or broth when reheating if the sauce thickens too much.
