"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!"

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!
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...
Awesome! I have made this several times and takken it to different occasions.Everytime I have been asked for the recipe! I have also made it with chicken! Great recipe!
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.
The sauce was fine but the meat never really got as tender as I would liked it to be
