What Kind of Beef is Used for Beef Tips?

You might be wondering, what exactly are beef tips? It’s a somewhat nebulous term, but it refers to cubed pieces of beef that can come from a variety of cuts. It could be sirloin, chuck roast, or another tougher and fattier section of the meat. These cuts are usually labeled as “stew meat” or “beef tips” at your local grocery store. In this recipe, any variety of beef tips will work as they will become tender with the long cooking time.
