Slow Cooker Beef Tips are the easiest, most comforting dinner ever! Just 3 ingredients and you have a dinner everyone will love!
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.
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 :)
- 3 pounds stew beef
- 1 can cream of onion soup
- 1 can cream of mushroom soup
- Mix the two soups in the bottom of your crockpot, add the beef and stir.
- Cover and let cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4-6 hours.
- Twenty minutes before eating throw in your cooked peas or cooked carrots or any other cooked veggies.
- Serve over rice, noodles or potatoes.
When you want a warm, comforting, hearty dinner that is the easiest thing ever, make these Slow Cooker Beef Tips and I promise they will end up on your weekly rotation!
I serve this over egg noodles but it is equally delicious over rice and mashed potatoes! Soooo good!! Don’t forget some bread on the side for dipping!
