This recipe for steak tips with peppered mushroom gravy was a so easy to put together and it was a great after work, fall, comfort kind of meal. I love that a serving of this including pasta and beef was only 344 calories. Ted and I really love pasta and we do enjoy beef meals. The combination of these two things with the gravy was incredible. The aroma while it was cooking, filled the house with yum!
