Ingredients

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 pounds cubed beef stew meat
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce (I used 1/2 this amount as I was worried about saltiness)
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce (I used 1/2 this amount as I was worried about saltiness)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 (.75 ounce) packet dry brown gravy mix
  • 1 cup water

Directions

  1. In a large skillet heat oil over high heat. Saute the onion until almost translucent.
  2. Add the stew meat and cook on high heat until meat is browned on all sides; about 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Pour 2 cups water, soy sauce, and Worcestershire sauce into the skillet. Stir in garlic powder, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
  4. Meanwhile combine the gravy mix with 1 cup water. Mix thoroughly and stir into the meat mixture. Bring to a boil stirring frequently until slightly thickened.

Very good! A definite 'do again'!

Slow Cooker Beef Tips

It's helpful to have all the ingredients 'on the ready' as you prepare your dish

  • 1 lb beef stew meat
  • ½ c all purpose flour
  • Couple pinches salt
  • Pinch of pepper
  • ½ onion, diced
  • 2 tsp garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp Kitchen bouquet
  • 1 – 14 oz can beef broth
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ – ½ c cream cheese
  • Wide egg noodles

Combine flour, salt and pepper in a Ziploc bag.  Add meat to flour mixture and toss until all pieces of meat are well coated.

Coating the stew meat in the flour mixture is made easy but putting all in a plastic bag to coat the meat. Clean up is super easy!

Line crock pot with crock pot liner* (see tips section) and add flour coated stew meat.  (Throw remaining flour mixture and Ziploc bag away).  Add the remaining ingredients except for the noodles and cook on LOW for 6-8 hours.  About 10 minutes before serving add cream cheese to crock pot and stir until dissolved.

Beef tips in the slow cooker cooking away!

Boil a pot of ‘salted’ water and add pasta when water is boiling.  Cook pasta until it is al dente (until it still has a little bite to it…not mushy).  Serve beef tips over pasta.

I like to use minced garlic from a jar found in grocery store near the produce normally. You can use fresh garlic if you like.

Dinners ready! Yum!
