Beef tips

After seeing this on one of my favorite food blogs I decided I needed to give it a try. I kind of fudged it a little to make it my own recipe. I read the ingredients and measurements briefly then winged it. Funny enough, they turned out almost exactly like the original measurements!

Pardon the craptastic photos. My camera isn't working the best for me and my kitchen lighting sucks!

Ingredients:

1 1/3 lbs beef (We used round steak and it worked fine, but it would have been more flavorful with a better cut)
olive oil (I didn't measure, I just coated the pan)
2 T butter
1 shallot, diced finely
1 Cup (roughly) baby bella mushrooms
1 clove garlic, crushed (next time I'll do 2 cloves)
kosher salt (all seasonings I just eyeballed, just enough to coat the meal well)
thyme
rosemary
black pepper
1/2-3/4 C white wine
3/4 C beef broth
2 T heavy cream

Served with mashed potatoes

Directions:

Coat pan with olive oil and melt butter. Saute shallots until they're slightly golden, then add mushrooms & garlic. Saute further for another minute or two. 

Coat steak with salt, pepper and seasonings. Add meat to the pan, saute everything until meat is nearly cooked. Add wine and broth, simmer until meat is cooked to your liking (I did just a hint of pink).

Add in the cream, mix well. I added a few dashes more seasonings here, too.

Serve over mashed potatoes and enjoy!
