Sirloin Tips and Mushrooms

This is another recipe that I found at All Recipes, and the edits I made to it are from one of the comments. The steak in this is so yummy and tender, and the sauce is great! You can serve it over pasta, but I prefer to serve it over mashed potatoes. There’s just something about steak and potatoes being together :P

My only complaint about this dish is that it may not be “kid-friendly” if say… you have a kiddo that doesn’t like “sauce” on anything. Ketchup is just fine, but no… no sauce please and thank-you! However, if you are serving this for a group of friends (who hopefully don’t mind sauce!) they will be astounded at your culinary prowess, I promise!

Sirloin Tips and Mushrooms                                         [click to print]

Serves 4 (from


3 tbsp olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
1-1/2 lb beef top sirloin steak
1 (8 oz) pkg of fresh mushrooms
1/4 cup water
1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
1 beef bouillon cube
3/4 cup cooking sherry
2 tbsp brown sugar
dash of dried thyme
bay leaves
2 tbsp butter


Thinly slice the mushrooms, mince the garlic, and cut the beef into cubes.

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat the olive oil, then add the beef cubes and garlic. Once the meat is browned, add mushrooms, water, tomato sauce, cooking sherry, brown sugar, the beef bouillon cube, thyme, and bay leaves. Turn heat to medium, cover the skillet, and cook for 40 minutes.

After removing from heat stir in the butter. Serve over mashed potatoes or pasta.

Here is everything you’ll need for the recipe, minus the bay leaves.
Mince your garlic, slice your mushrooms, and cut up your beef.
Add your oil to the skillet and heat it up.
Then add your beef and garlic–> When your beef is browned, add your mushrooms and water–> Add your tomato sauce–> Add your cooking sherry, bouillon cube, brown sugar, and thyme–> Combine everything–> Cover your skillet and reduce the heat to medium. Cook for 40 minutes.
Mmmmm look at that! Super super yummy!
Stir in the 2tbsp of butter once it’s done cooking.

Once you have stirred the butter in, serve over mashed potatoes (my suggestion) or pasta. Enjoy!

  1. The only reason I don’t “make enough” is because you eat as much as two people Dad!! LOL When I made this at Erin’s we had enough to feed 4 of us plus another (Bridget and Logan = 1 person). So I’m guessing the problem is you Poppa :P
