wild west beef & smoked gouda grits


  • 1 package (17 ounces) refrigerated fully-cooked beef tips with gravy
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 6 ounces portobello mushrooms, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 3 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup quick-cooking grits
  • 1 cup shredded smoked Gouda cheese
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons butter, softened


1. To prepare Smoked Gouda Grits, bring water to a boil in medium saucepan. Slowly add grits, stirring constantly.

2. Meanwhile heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and onion. Cook 4 to 5 minutes or until onion is tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in beef tips with gravy; continue cooking until heated through, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

3. Serve beef mixture over grits. Garnish with parsley, if desired.
