This is a great Italian main dish. It goes great served over hot cooked vermicelli noodles, with garlic bread and robust red wine. It's beef tips, pasta & pink sauce. That's it!

  • Add water to beef and let simmer over low heat until meat is tender. Drain off skillet liquid and reserve. Return onion/mushroom mixture to skillet; stir in Alfredo sauce and spaghetti sauce. Return 1/4 to 1/2 cup of the reserved liquid to the skillet (do not add too much, as this will make the sauce too watery). Stir all together and serve.

This was a really good meal. I made it on a Saturday night good because it takes a little time to cook. I made a from scratch alfredo sauce. I also used vodka instead of marsala wine because vodka was what I had. It turned out really good. Vermicelli was a little fine for the beef I would suggest linguine or fetuchine. I also would suggest simmering the meat for about 45 minutes I only did it for 15-20 minutes and it wasn't that tender. Good though and the kids liked the pink sauce.

This recipe was ok. I liked the alfredo and spaghetti sauce mixture but I didn't enjoy it with the beef tips. I also found the directions to be rather time consuming when it really didn't need to be so complicated.

What a creative mix for the sauce! A CREAMY spaghetti wine sauce mixed with BEEF. I would change the part of the recipe stating to add wine and spices THEN the meat; I think browning the beef gives off more flavor than "braising" which will happen if you add liquid (the wine) first. It took my beef tips about 1-1/2 hours simmering to tenderize which is probably typical. Different and tasty but not something we would make often. I made it low carb with "Bella Vista" low carb (YUM) spaghetti sauce and homemade heavy-cream alfredo and served with just a nice spring mix salad.

Excellent dish. I substituted sprinkling the wine in the dish for pouring it in a glass. I also replaced the beef tips with finger tips. Otherwise superb! Dominick

I slow cooked my beef in the everything except the alfredo and spaghetti sauce. This makes the beef really tender. I add the alfredo and spaghetti the last half hour. My family enjoyed this it was a great change for the same ol same ol with beef tips...

The sauce was fine but the meat never really got as tender as I would liked it to be

Great taste.. Great way to get rid of some left over Masala wine. (That stuff is nasty) It wasn't pink though! It says its pink! THAT was dissapointing because my 4 year old loves everything pink.. and I did it to treat her. Nothing spectactular.. just a complicated variation of spaghetti.
