Slow Cooker Beef Tips Dinner

O.K., I guess it isn’t a secret.  People have been using crock pots for years to slowly cook and tenderize tougher cuts of meat.  I use it for the sheer convenience of being able to put something together before I go to work so that dinner is waiting for us when we all return home from our day’s adventures.

Recently while I was at the grocery store I spotted a package of stewing meat on sale.  I immediately knew that it was destined to find a home in my crock pot and become Slow Cooker Beef Tips.

As you know, we have a bunch of boys.  Between them and work, there really isn’t a whole lot of time left in the day.  That is why it is important for me to use my time wisely and plan our meals ahead.

To take this a step further, when using my crock pot, I try to get everything ready the night before so that in the morning I can just dump all my ingredients in, turn on the crock pot and get on with my day.   For these Slow Cooker Beef Tips, I actually browned my stewing meat with some onions and garlic in a pan on the stove the night before.

Not only did I get a head start on the dish, but it also added a whole another depth of flavor because I browned my meat.  Did I mention that there may or may not have been some red wine used to de-glaze the pan?  Alright, who are we kidding?  Of course there was red wine used.

The next morning this meal went together in a snap.  I took out the meat from the refrigerator, added a few cans of cream of mushroom soup, some beef broth and turned on the crock pot to low.  Upon my return, the house smelled heavenly.  All I needed to do was to stir in a little sour cream and boil some egg noodles.  Within fifteen minutes we were all sitting down enjoying this delicious meal.  Do your family a favor and make these Slow Cooker Beef Tips.  They will thank you for it.  Enjoy.  -Scott

  1. Is overnight refrigeration just a time saver or does it add flavor? See that bed too recipe with rosemary doesn’t require overnight refrigeration

  2. I love making beef in the slow cooker, this sounds so good, I bet my family would love it! And great tip to brown the meat the night before, great way to save time in the morning, especially on busy school days.
