Beef Tenderloin Tips in Red Wine Sauce
In my neck of the woods, you will most likely find this classic dish on Supper Club menus. This tasty dish goes by several different names; beef tips, company beef and tenderloin tips in wine. Serve beef tenderloin tips in red wine sauce over hot buttered, extra-wide, home-style noodles for that classic Supper Club ‘Northwoods House Specialty.’ This is one of my favorite ways to prepare beef tenderloin and I prepare it often.
Left-overs are fantastic!
When beef tenderloin is on sale in your area, pick up a package or two. This recipe can be easily doubled with the same delicious results. The left-overs are not only fantastic, you can easily make a complete ‘second’ meal with them. Simply mix together any left-over buttered noodles, with any left-over beef tenderloin tips. Add a splash of red wine if needed and bake at 350 degrees until hot and bubbly. Serve with a vegetable of choice.
Das Essenhaus Egg Noodles
Our favorite way to serve beef tenderloin tips in red wine sauce is over noodles. Preferably extra wide, homestyle egg noodles. There are so many wonderful brands on the market to choose from. You can certainly take the time to make homemade noodles, which would take this recipe from an A to an A+. We like to use Das Essenhaus Noodles. Essenhaus is located in Middlebury IN.
If your ever in the area, stop by Essenhaus and enjoy a delicious meal or something sweet from the bakery. Essenhaus Noodles are not only super delicious, they can stand up or hold their own when served with this hearty beef/wine dish. It would be a real culinary disaster to serve this dish over noodles that fall apart or get mushy under this delicious wine sauce. Tsk Tsk
You can find Das Essenhaus Noodles at most supermarkets or specialty food stores.
