Slow Cooker Beef Tips are my go to slow cooker dinner.  I love using my slow cooker but I do not like it when I open it up at the end of the day and find my beef has turned into mush lol.  That is why I always use stew beef in all my slow cooker recipes, it gets super tender and holds it’s shape.

This is a recipe that my family has been making forever and for good reason too!  It is so simple, inexpensive and bursts with flavor!

Three ingredients is all you need to make the most tender, delicious, flavorful beef tips ever, right from the slow cooker!  These are fancy enough to serve to guests and yet are the ultimate comfort food for snuggling on the sofa while the snow falls outside.

Now I always get a bunch of questions about this recipe, people can’t believe it is really only 3 ingredients and there must be something I am missing!  But I am not, this is a true 3 ingredient recipe that has out of this world flavor.

Also I get that some people don’t like onion flavor, I am one of those people that hates mushrooms but I still use cream of mushroom soup in this recipe.  It cooks down to his incredible flavor and tastes nothing like mushrooms, you just get this deep savory flavor.

It truly is a magic recipe, the first time I made it myself I could not believe this is all it took to make those heavenly beef tips my grandma would serve over mountains of buttered egg noodles, but 8 hours later I was sold!

Even my super picky eaters love this dish and I know yours will too!

Can I substitute the soups?

You can, however, I cannot vouch for what it would taste like, you are more than welcome to use 2 cans of cream of mushroom or 2 cans of cream of onion or even try cream of celery.

Can I add vegetables?

Of course!  This makes a perfect base for beef stew, you can just throw in some carrots and peas and you have the best beef stew ever!  Sometimes I throw in a can of drained carrots right at the end if I want to add some veggies.

Freezer Meal?

Sure!  You can mix it all together and pop into a freezer bag but opening up the 2 cans of soup is just as easy :)

    1. I can usually find it at Wal-mart but it is a weird one to find. You can use 2 cans of cream of chicken and one envelope of onion soup mix :)

    2. Have made this dish for 20 years. I use 1 can each of campbells cream of mushroom, golden mushroom, and french onion soup. Add beef stew meat, cook on low all day(min. 6 hrs) serve over egg noodles or potatos

  1. I have been doing this for years!! Only, I use cream of celery and cream of mushroom or chicken soup. It turns out delicious no matter what soup I use. I serve over rice or mashed potatoes with a vegetable. Really easy and a filling meal.

  2. I just found this recipe of yours and it looks terrific! I don’t think I want to wait til Fall comes again to make this one. I’m adding it to my list of pinterest recipes to make in the very near future. :)

  3. Just wanted to let you know that I tried this out this evening (with a few modifications) and it was a hit!! I served it with egg noodles and it was really, really good. Thank you for the idea to work with! It was simple and delicious!

    1. Awww, Im so glad you guys liked it!! I love to hear from people who have made my recipes!! I love it over egg noodles too!!!

    1. Nope! The beef kinda gives off it’s own juice and is all mixes together perfectly :)

      1. If it is browned you get all those brown juices from the pan. Throw in a little zip of broth or water and clean the pan and add it to the crock.

  4. Found your recipe via “Alls Free Slow Cooker Recipes”. Thanks for sharing this one. I, like others have said, have made similar recipes but with roasts or steaks. This is my first with stew beef. I would like to suggest trying Beefy Mushroom (which is put out by Campbells) or Golden Mushroom in stead of the regular Cream of Mushroom. I believe it might give the dish a richer beef flavor. Also if folks are having a hard time finding “cream of onion” soup, not sure how well it would work, but maybe Campbell’s French Onion soup might work ….. if nothing else strain the onions from the soup and use just them. Thanks for letting me provide some suggestions. Again Parrish, thanks for posting this dish.

  5. Don’t know where you guys are from, but in the mtns. of NC, you can find the cream of onion soup in all of the grocery stores here, and Wal-Mart, too

    1. You can use 2 cream of onion or a cream of chicken. I do not like mushrooms at all and I cannot taste them in this recipe :)

    1. It does have a mellow onion flavor. You could sub the cream of onion for all cream of mushroom, or cream of celery or cream of chicken :)

    1. That is up to you! However much veggies you like! Harder ones like fresh carrots might require a little extra cooking time but canned ones and frozen veggie just need to heat through a bite :)

  6. French onion soup, a little red wine…onion soup mix….yummmmm potatoes, carrots……….hard bread …
