Hands down, this Beef Tips and Gravy over Cauliflower Mash recipe is by far my new favorite recipe of ALL TIME. I live for comfort food and this meal makes me feel all warm and cozy inside. With this meal, I have to control myself because you will find me creeping in the kitchen for seconds and thirds.

Creating delicious meals that serve my family in a healthy way is what I live for! When my husband looks at me and says, “Babe this is a flipping WINNER DINNER!” I feel so so good inside, almost like I am nailing this whole wife and mom thing, haha. The best part about this recipe is I have developed it for the stove and instant pot!

Whole30 Beef Tips

Ingredients needed:

  • 2 pounds cubed beef stew meat or sirloin tips
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • pinch of pepper

Gravy

  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1 1/2 tsp ghee
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • pepper (to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp salt (add more to taste if needed)
  • 2 tbsp tapioca flour ( dissolved in 2 tbsp water (for Keto, sub 1/4 tsp xanthan gum)

Mashed Cauliflower

  • 2 (12oz) bags cauliflower rice (or 1 head of cauliflower, chopped-boiled or steamed)
  • 2 tsp ghee
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp chives (fresh or dry)
  • 2 tbsp coconut milk
  • 1/2 tsp salt (add more to taste if needed)
  • 1/4 tsp pepper (add more to taste if needed)

How to make Beef Tips and Gravy:

Stove-Top Version

  1. In a large skillet heat oil over high heat. Add the meat, minced garlic and a little salt and pepper. Cook on medium/high heat until meat is browned on all sides; about 5 minutes.
  2. Pour 2 cups beef broth over the meat and drippings and bring to a boil then reduce heat. Add dissolved tapioca flour, ghee, garlic powder, salt and pepper to the beef broth. (The broth will not thicken automatically, it will thicken as it heats up and simmers.
  3. Mix thoroughly and stir into the meat. Simmer until the meat is tender and the gravy is thick. (The longer it simmers, the more tender the meat. I recommend simmering on low with lid for an additional 30 minutes or longer).

Instant Pot Version

  1. Turn on the Instant Pot and set to sauté and allow time to heat up
  2. Add 1 tbsp olive oil and place the steak pieces in. Cook until the outside of the steak is browned.
  3. Before adding in the gravy ingredients, turn the settings on the instant pot to high pressure. Once this setting is on, add all ingredients for the gravy. Make sure to add the tapioca flour last, dissolved in water first. It will mix evenly this way. Once it heats up, the gravy should thicken.
  4. Lock the lid making sure the top vent is sealed. Cook on high pressure for 10 minutes. If the broth is not thick enough after pressure cooking, add a 1/2 tbsp MORE tapioca flour and turn onto “Sauté” mode and bring to a boil.
  5. I usually use natural release, but it’s fine if you do quick release if you are in a hurry. I find that the steak is a little more tender with the natural release.

Crockpot Version

  1. Brown the beef tips over medium/high heat with 1 tbsp of olive oil. Remove and add meat to crockpot.
  2. Throw all the ingredients EXCEPT the tapioca flour in the crockpot (Using an additional 1 cup of broth for this version)
  3. Cook on high for 3-4 hours or on low for 5-7 hours.
  4. 15 minutes before serving, dissolve the 2 tbsp of tapioca flour in 2 tbsp of water and add to the crockpot. Mix in completely and stir until it begins to thicken. Cook on low 15 additional minutes. (If you want it a little thicker, you may need to add 1/2 tbsp MORE tapioca flour)
Whole30 Beef Tips

What if my gravy that goes over the beef tips does not get thick?

Gravy is something that will bring any dish to life and it took me a long time to figure out the perfect recipe that aligns with the Paleo guidelines. Tapioca and Arrowroot flour are game changers for Paleo cooking and serves as a great thickening agents that are the perfect substitute for real flour. I also love brightening up my roast along with just plain ham steaks with this gravy. If you are looking for a keto substitute, feel free to use xanthan gum.

This is a very common question. Because arrowroot and tapioca are a Paleo substitute for real four/thickening agent, don’t expect the gravy to be as thick as the traditional gravy. My gravy is the consistency of a thicker soup. Feel free to add less broth to make it thicker or experiment with adding a little more tapioca flour.

Remember, it will have to simmer and as it heats it will begin to thicken. If you are living strict Keto, feel free to sub xantham gum.  Whisk 1/4 tsp xanthan gum with 1 part cold water to create a slurry.

  • 1/2 tsp salt (add more to taste if needed)
  • 1/4 tsp pepper (add more to taste if needed)

Instructions

Stove-Top Version

  1. In a large skillet heat oil over high heat. Add the meat, minced garlic and a little salt and pepper. Cook on medium/high heat until meat is browned on all sides; about 5 minutes.
  2. Pour 2 cups beef broth over the meat and drippings and bring to a boil then reduce heat. Add dissolved tapioca flour, ghee, garlic powder, salt and pepper to the beef broth. (The broth will not thicken automatically, it will thicken as it heats up and simmers.
  3. Mix thoroughly and stir into the meat. Simmer until the meat is tender and the gravy is thick. (The longer it simmers, the more tender the meat. I recommend simmering on low with lid for an additional 30 minutes or longer).

Cauliflower Mash

  1. Bring 1 head of cauliflower chopped or 2 bags of cauliflower rice to a boil, about 10 minutes.
  2. Drain liquid from the cauliflower and add to the food processor with garlic powder, chives, ghee, coconut milk, salt and pepper.
  3. Blend together until smooth and top with fresh chives. Make sure NOT over blend or it will turn into a soupy puree.
  4. Add Cauliflower mash to a plate and top with beef tips along with creamy gravy. Garnsih with fresh or dried parsley

Instant Pot Version

  1. Turn on the Instant Pot and set to sauté and allow time to heat up
  2. Add 1 tbsp olive oil and place the steak pieces in. Cook until the outside of the steak is browned.
  3. Before adding in the gravy ingredients, turn the settings on the instant pot to high pressure. Once this setting is on, add all ingredients for the gravy. Make sure to add the tapioca flour last, dissolved in water first. It will mix evenly this way. Once it heats up, the gravy should thicken.

Notes

  • My gravy won’t be as thick as using regular flour. It is the consistency of a thicker soup. Feel free to add less broth to make it thicker or experiment with adding a little more tapioca flour. Remember, it will have to simmer and as it heats it will begin to thicken.
  • For Keto, whisk 1/2 tsp Xanthan Gum to thicken the gravy without added carbs. Tapioca flour does contain some carbs so this is a great sub. 
  • The nutrition facts below are calculated for 1/4 of the beef tip recipe and 1/4 of the cauliflower recipe. 1 scoop each of beef tips and the cauli mash.

    • I have not tried yet. I would say set your crockpot on low and give it a shot. I would wait to add the tapioca flour right before serving to thicken.

  • New to instpot and just tried this recipe. Really unclear on the natural release… don’t we have to know how long it should naturally release for?

    Reply
    • Natural Release does it for you. It usually takes between 12 and 20 minutes. If you want it done quicker, quick release is fine too.

  • I made this at the end of my September Whole30 and it did not disappoint! It has become a go-to meal in my house and my keto-eating husband loves this too (he makes exceptions for the minimal amount of tapioca). I generally make it on the stove, but the instant pot version is super easy too.

  • Want to add mushrooms, have you added them ever and would you just do it at the end? I would think they would overcook in the instant pot?

    Reply
    • You could add them at the end during the thickening of the gravy stage.

      Reply
  • I just made this and could not stop eating it! It’s absolutely delicious!! I also added onions and carrots to the instant pot before pressurizing. Worked out perfectly.

  • Made the beef tips and gravy last night and it was a hit! I substituted Arrowroot for the flour, and simmered for an hour. I made my non-dairy mashed potatoes to go with this and some savory roasted carrots on the side, Yummy! Will definitely be making this again, as it is also such a good base for that you can hearty up! Thanks for sharing!

    • Yes. That would absolutely work. Just dice into cubes.

      Reply
  • Yes ma’am. It is the full fat unsweetened.

  • The tapioca flour is what thickens the sauce, Almond flour won’t do the exact same there in this case. You could use Gelatin instead or even arrowroot flour.

I just throw it together and let it simmer until we’re ready to eat (the longer the better). Even my very picky husband loves it. I made it during our first whole 30 and it was like a sigh of relief. Delicious, soul satisfying, comfort food.

  • I’m going to make this for Christmas Eve dinner! I’m serving 9 people. I am going to triple the recipe to make sure I have enough and leftovers. Was wondering if you thought the instapot or crockpot version would turn out better? Or maybe it doesn’t make a difference? Wasn’t sure if you had any additional suggestions to make sure it turns out for a larger crowd. Thanks so much! We’ve made it before and it’s ❤️❤️

    Reply
    • I would for sure use the crockpot version. It will make the meat tender and easier to cook. Hope you guys love the recipe!

  • This recipe is a big victory in finding good Whole 30 recipes that, not only I like, but my husband does too!! Not only is the beef -really- good, but the cauliflower mash is my go-to with other meals when I want a “starchy” substitute for a side dish! I compare all cauliflower mash recipes to this one! I even made it for Sunday Dinner for the whole family including in-laws and everyone loved it (yes, the entire family was dragged into my Whole 30 world!) I double the recipe and eat the meat on salads for the rest of the week. Thank you Mac!!

  • This is always in my whole30 meal plan and also when I’m not doing a whole30. I’ve tried it with two cuts of beef and they both worked perfectly in the instant pot. Also with the IP it’s pretty much a 30 minute recipe also!

This was his favorite thing I made. He requests it regularly. Make this for your family it will be a crowed pleaser. Thank you Mac for all you do to help bring good food to the family table quickly and easily.

  • I made this for my first time (in crockpot) it was super easy! I added some herbs de provence and cooked on high for 4.5hrs. In the last 35 mins I added onion and it took 1/2 tsp of xanthan gum for a stew consistency. I used frozen cauliflower but did not use blender, so mine was not a smooth as mashed potatoes. But my 8 & 10 yr old liked it regardless! Thanks for the yummy and easy recipe 🙂

  • SO yummy and easy!!! This has become a family favorite and made its way into our dinner rotations! Thank you for such a nutritious and delicious recipe that is easy to make!

  • Omg I made this and it was SO GOOD. I was so excited, except I had one major oops. I forgot to add the water to my xeantheun gum mixture. I was so concerned with my meat and gravy becoming thick and tender I let it simmer for WAY too long while making the cauli rice (which was a total success btw so not all was lost!!). And when I opened the cover, my gravy had completely burnt off and was stuck the pan lol. I was stuck with burnt meat and cauli rice but it was my fault. Can’t wait to try this out again 🙂
    Thank you!

  • i can’t find any tapioca flour or arrowroot flour in any of my local grocery store can i sub almond flour? that’s all i can find.

    Reply
    • Almond flour will not work the same as tapioca or arrowroot. You can use xanthan gum but that’s really the only other sub.
