DIRECTIONS

1.

Brown the beef cubes in a steam-jacketed or braising pan that has been sprayed with pan release spray. Stir the beef frequently.

2.

Continue to brown the beef cubes for about 30 minutes, or until all pieces are browned.

3.

Mix the beef base with 1 cup of water. Add it to meat mixture.

4.

Add the onions, peppers, black pepper, and worcestershire sauce. Stir the mixture well and simmer for about 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until meat is tender.

5.

Combine the flour and 1 quart + 2 cups of water to make a smooth paste. Slowly stir this into beef mixture to make a gravy. Cook until the mixture is thickened.

This recipe yields 1½ gallons. Place in steamtable pans for service. Serve immediately, or cover and place in warmer until ready for service. If aluminum foil is used as a cover, cut holes in aluminum foil until ready for service.

CCP:  Heat to 155 degrees F or higher for 15 seconds at the completion of the cooking process.

6.

Bring 2 gallons of water to a rolling boil.

7.

Slowly add PASTA to boiling water.  Cook pasta for 9-11 minutes, or until al dente (cooked just long enough to be firm and not too soft). 

Pasta amounts are based on USDA Food Buying Guide. Overcooking or hot holding pasta for long periods of time will increase the volume and the yield.

Pasta may also be cooked in a steamer or combi oven. Different steamers and combi ovens vary in time and settings, so check with the manufacturer for correct instructions. 

8.

Drain the pasta, then place it in half-size steamtable pans (12" x 10 "x 4"). Cover it and place in warmer until ready for service. If aluminum foil is used as a cover, cut holes in aluminum foil until ready for service.

Hot holding pasta for long periods of time will increase the volume and the yield.

9.

Portion ½ cup of noodles with 4 ounce spoodle or #8 scoop and using a 4 ounce spoodle or a #8 scoop, serve ½ cup beef tips mixture over  noodles per serving. Each portion provides 2 oz. eq. meat/meat alternate, 1 oz. eq. enriched grain, and 1/8 cup other vegetable.

CCP: Hold and maintain the product at a minimum of 135 degrees F or higher. Check temperature every 30 minutes. Leftovers should be covered, labeled and dated. Quick chill within 2 hours to 70 degrees F or lower and from 70 to 41 degrees F within an additional 2 hours.
