Stealing Ingredients for the In-Laws

Every once in a while we will invite someone over for dinner. Often it is before we make the menu for the week so we can accommodate the extra mouths at the table. The other day we decided to invite over my in-laws for dinner. We made the invitation a scant number of minutes after I had already gone grocery shopping for the week. We had Beef Tips over Rice planned for that evening. Many recipes could be stretched, but one that is mostly meat is really hard to do that. Looking at the menu for the week, I knew I could sacrifice a later meal to steal ingredients.

  • 1 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • 2 lbs. sirloin tip roast, cut into 2-inch strips
  • 4 tbsp. oil
  • 2 lg. onions, sliced
  • 2 beef flavored bouillon cubes
  • 1 1/2 c. boiling water


Combine the flour, salt, and pepper in a plastic bag; shake to mix. Add meat and shake well to coat. Heat oil in a Dutch oven or large pot; brown meat in the oil. Add onions and cook until onions are tender.Dissolve the bouillon cubes in the boiling water. Pour over beef mixture. Cover; reduce heat and simmer for 2 hours, stirring occasionally. Serve over rice. This will serve 6-8 people and is delicious!
