I love warm weather meals. My wife calls it “soup weather”. Whatever you flavor is, it’s sure to love this tried and tested recipe for steak tips with peppered gravy. We start out using only the best ingredients like the Meats by Linz Upper 1/3 USDA Choice Tenderloin Tips, currently $10.99 a lb at the Carolina Food Market. Then we put it over a bed of fresh egg noodle pasta from Pasta & Provisions, another product you can get at the Carolina Food Market.

Briefly cooking the gravy with thyme sprigs saves the time of stripping the tiny leaves from the stem, but still gives you the herb’s woodsy flavor in this steak recipe. Serve over pasta & provisions egg noodle pasta, as instructed.



4 servings (serving size: about 3/4 cup beef mixture and 2/3 cup noodles)

Total time: 20 Minutes
