Beef Tips Veracruzana are a variation of a traditional Mexican dish called Puntas de Filete a la Mexicana. “A la Mexicana” means that it has tomatoes, onion and serrano chiles; although each region in Mexico has their own version.
Our Molli version uses bacon and our Veracruz cooking sauce. And it is our go-to beef recipe when we have no idea what to cook for dinner. And, not only because they are pop in your mouth delicious, but also because they are perfectly seasoned and absolutely the easiest beef dish!
Also, you can vegetables and let them cook with the beef that last 10 minutes to make a rounded, one meal dish. Provecho!
