This might be considered pub or diner food, but we had lunch recently at a local roadfood-type of restaurant near Lynchburg and ordered one of their lunch specials for that day: Beef tips with gravy over rice. It was served in a bowl, and the beef was chunks of roast beef that had been cooked long and slowly so that you could cut it with your fork and it nearly melted in your mouth. And the gravy was a thick, brown and rich tasting almost "sauce." It brought back memories of having roast beef many years ago that tasted like this. Can anyone suggest what cut, or cuts, of beef are their favorite for making old fashioned roast beef. And for what the seasonings might be in the gravy to impart that savory, saucy taste?
P.S. The restaurant was "The Koffee Kup Restaurant" on Timberlake Rd (U.S. Rt.460-business) near Lynchburg, VA.
