Good, but missing something

I made this one on Monday night and found it to be very easy. However, it was missing something the taste was okay on the bland side, I'm not much of a salt user, so if anyone has any ideas on how to spice up the tase I'd love to hear it!

Can't be more easy

This was super easy. My kids really liked it. The recipe is a keeper. I used merlot and added extra garlic. Thanks

Simple, Quick and a Keeper

This is a great recipe.!Will probably use a sirloin steak instead next time to cut down cooking time for tenderness in the meat. I used a merlot instead of a cabernet and it really made a nice deep taste along with the french roast coffe that I use. The only thing I would suggest is doubling the sauce if you like more.

Excellent Weekday Meal

My family loved this! I did not have noodles so I made mashed potatoes instead and it went well with the salad I made. I was not impressed about putting coffee in it though, and will use beef broth instead the next time I make it. Otherwise, it is a keeper!

Beef tips and Noodles

This was an easy dish. I added a little Adolf's meat tenderizer while meat was browning. Next time I'll add a little more seasoning salt also, but we loved this dish. My husband ate 1/2 the pot. I think I'll try mashed potatoes with it next time....
