Tips for making Beef Tips and Gravy:
  • For the noodles: bring the water to a boil before adding to the pot it cooks the noodles better and they don't stick together. 
  • Make sure to check on the beef tips every 30 minutes as they cook.  If you have the heat too high it will cook off the liquid then you might burn your tips--oh no!
