How to cook deliciously - Beef Tips and Tots

1 . Stage

Slice beef into 3/4-inch strips; then slice these pieces, at an angle, into smaller "tips." Season beef with salt and pepper.

2 . Stage

Heat oil in a large skillet over high heat until shimmering. Transfer in beef, arranging in a single layer. Let the meat sear until browned, 3 to 5 minutes, before turning over and browning the other side.

3 . Stage

Reduce heat to medium and add tomato paste, garlic, and butter. Stir everything until the butter melts, and then stir in the flour. Cook and stir for 1 minute.

4 . Stage

Stir in broth. Raise heat to high and bring to a simmer. Reduce to low, cover, and cook until beef is starting to get tender, about 1 hour and 15 minutes.

5 . Stage

Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

6 . Stage

Uncover, turn heat to medium, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the sauce has thickened, and the meat is tender, about 30 minutes.

7 . Stage

While meat simmers, bake potato nuggets in the preheated oven until crispy and heated through, 20 to 25 minutes.

8 . Stage

Taste beef tips and adjust the seasoning. Serve immediately over hot potato nuggets. Unknown
