Beef Tenderloin Tips with Brown Rice and Asparagus

Beef  Tenderloin Tips with Brown Rice and Asparagus

This beef dish is so tender it almost melts in your mouth. It is full of garlic, shallots and mushrooms in a flavorful sauce. When it comes to choosing protein-rich foods, beef is a nutritious, wholesome choice with the taste you love. After all, a life full of favorites is a flavorful life. Be sure to try the Interactive Butcher Counter as a resource for choosing and preparing beef. Look for the cuts with the green logo for the healthiest options.


I started the rice cooking before I started the beef because the brown rice has a long cooking time. Because brown rice takes about a hour to cook I usually make at least double of what I need. I then freeze the remaining rice in a couple of bags so I can use them for a healthier weeknight meal.

Beef Tenderloin Tips with Brown Rice and Asparagus

I used beef tenderloin to make this dish because you can make this dish in about 1 hour. You start off sauteing the mushrooms and then the shallots with the garlic. I take each of the ingredients out after they are finished cooking. Next I added the beef in several batches to get it nicely browned. Then you are going to add all the remaining ingredients along with the beef, shallots, garlic and mushrooms to the pan and pop it in the oven for 20 minutes. Next you are going to thicken all of that lovely stock, let it cook for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat to stir in the low fat sour cream. You don’t want to let it boil again as it can curdle.
