My goal with easy recipes like this one for Crockpot Beef Tips & Gravy is to create a simple supper full of flavor without a lot of work involved.
BEEF TIPS OR STEAK TIPS
Some folks call it Steak Tips and Rice because the meat is typically sirloin cut into chunks.
I always heard this dish called beef tips. My Dad loved Beef Tips & Rice and my Mom would cook it for him from scratch the old fashioned way.
You know how you batter the beef tips in flour then brown them on all sides then drain, then make the gravy, then add the beef tips back in and simmer forever. Yes it is good but it is also time consuming and messy. This easy recipe for Crockpot Beef Tips & Gravy is just as good without all the fuss.
All you need for this simple meal is one or two cans of beef gravy depending on how many beef tips you plan to cook. We want the beef tips to be completely covered with gravy in the Crockpot so I always use two cans. Plus my fellas like plenty of gravy on their rice too.
As always, I rinse meat under cool water and drain in a colander before cooking.
Some of the pieces of meat are larger than others, I cut them into smaller chunks to stretch the dish when the need arises.
Season the beef tips with salt and pepper and then place them into the Crockpot. Sprinkle with one packet of Beefy Onion dry soup mix. Pour the gravy over them and stir.
Turn the Crockpot on to low and cook for 6 to 8 hours. The beef tips will be fork tender and delicious!
I am using a smaller Crockpot like this one.
LET’S TALK FLAVOR
So I have had at least one person say they didn’t feel like the beef tips had any real flavor so let’s talk about where the flavor comes from in this recipe.
Salt and Pepper, to taste for this recipe. I am typically light handed with the salt because of high blood pressure. There is salt already added to both the beef gravy and the beefy soup mix.
Sometimes a little more pepper may be in order if your crew likes a little ‘bite’ to the flavor.
Add any dry seasoning you like! Come tell me about it! Everyone would like to know what you did different including me!
When cooking in the Crockpot, there is a moisture factor as liquid does not evaporate. These beef tips are literally slow cooking IN beef gravy which is a beef flavor.
Serve Beef Tips and Gravy with:
- Egg Noodles
- Mashed Potatoes (here’s my Made from Scratch recipe)
Some folks would insist on having a pan of biscuits just because there is gravy involved. That will be good too!
Rice is a kitchen staple which helps stretch the grocery budget while being yummy and filling at the same time, especially with gravy on top. Don’t throw out the leftover rice, it’s perfectly good to reheat and serve again tomorrow. Keep scrolling past this recipe for a list of weeknight meal ideas using rice.
