Quick Beef Tips
2 lbs. sirloin steak tips, cut into 1" chunks
Salt & pepper to taste
4 slices bacon chopped
8 oz. cremini or white mushrooms, quartered
1 cup frozen pearl onions, thawed
3 Tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup all -purpose flour
2 cups red wine (medium-bodied, like pinot noir)
1 cup chicken broth
2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme
Pat steaks tips dry with papaer towels and season with salt & pepper.Cook bacon in Dutch oven over medium-high heat until crisp, about 5 minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer bacon to paper towel-lined plate. Cook steak tips in bacon fat until well browned all over, about 5 minutes. Transfer to plate and tent with foil.

Add mushrooms and onions to empty pot and cook until browned, about 5 minutes; transfer to medium bowl. Stir butter and flour into empty pot and cook until golden, 1-2 minutes. Stir in wine, broth, thyme, and beef along with any accumulated beef juiced and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, until sauce is slightly thickened, about 10 minutes. Stir in bacon, onions, and mushrooms. Serve.
