This is one of my family's favorite meals. I got this recipe from my Grandmother. I love to serve this with a side of green beans. Great the next day and reheats or freezes well. Great on those rainy days.

Instructions Checklist
  • Melt butter with olive oil in a large heavy pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Place flour in a shallow bowl and dredge the beef tips in the flour. Brown the beef in the hot butter and oil, stirring often, about 15 minutes.

  • Pour water into the pot and scrape to dissolve browned food bits from the bottom of the pot. Stir in the flavor packets from the rice mix and dissolve; mix in the rice and mushrooms. Bring the mixture to a simmer and reduce heat to medium-low; simmer until beef is tender and the rice has absorbed the liquid, 20 to 30 more minutes.

"Grandmaw Cain" sure has a great recipe - kept to the recipe w/o any changes. Thinking next time I'll season the flour w/ some garlic powder, and seasoning salt. Read More

No matter how we make it we just don't care for beef tips unless they are in stew. Read More

I cut the water back by a quarter cup and replaced it with red wine. I made no other changes. I did not try this myself but the husband and kids told me they liked it. They must have, they ate every single bite of it. Read More

I was looking for a way to use beef stew meat other than in stew or stroganoff and came across this recipe. It was pretty easy and good enough. My problem was the meat didn't quite get the chance to cook long enough to be tender. It wasn't terribly chewy but not quite the way the way I like it to turn out. Will make this again however, if I can figure out a way around that one small chewy problem. Read More

LOVED the idea. I didnt use the pre-made rice packets at all. I had some stew meat and it was too hot out to make a stew..rice is always light and easy. I DID sub one cup water with a cup merlot. Makes all the diff in the WORLD. Coudlnt even tell you the measurments...but seasoned the flour for the meat with garlic salt and lemon pepper, then let the butter and oil simmer for a bit with Safron, Thyme, Rosemary (my fave) and a Ginger Seasame seasoning. It was an absolute throw together that doesnt even really belong on this board...but thought the OP deserved the post because she gave me the idea to begin with, but my family loved it so much-they request it TOO often. It has now become a Hill family traditional thing that only I can make because I NEVER DO right it down! HA. I give BIG PROPS to the OP because although I didnt follow the original recipie by any stretch of the imagination, I would have never thought to use the stew meat in this fashion w/ the rice! I've done this with stew meat with noodles hundreds of times. Funny how our minds get stuck in a rut and thats where they follow....guess thats why Im not on Food Network. HA. I STILL THINK PIE STYLE SHOULD HAVE WON AND PAULA SHOULDNT HAVE BEEN FIRED! THAT WAS SOME DIRTY WORK THERE!!!! Read More

Really yummy... made almost exactly as directed, except cut in half. The only change I made was adding pepper to the flour before browning the meat. It was like a meaty rice pilaf. Served with asparagus. This is definitely going in my rotation. Read More

Seasoned the flour with garlic salt and pepper. Added onion. I used a packet of McCormick brown gravy since I used plain wild and brown rice that did not have seasoning packet. Also added one can of Cream of Mushroom soup. Turned out great! Read More

Very good - a few adaptations - I used beef broth instead of the water & cooked up fresh morels & added them at the end of the cook time. I used Uncle Ben's wild rice & it was delicious!!! Read More

Did as some others suggested and cut the beef smaller and added a bit of onion powder garlic powder and ground pepper to the flour and added a bit of Better Than Boullion to the water. We loved this. Thank you. Read More
