I love making recipes in my slow cooker. So today I am sharing my slow cooker beef tips recipe. It is a recipe that is so easy to make and tastes so good! I am also sharing tips on how to do a slow cooker spiral ham! Both of these recipes are perfect for fall! So warm and comforting!
I am betting your life is as busy as mine. Work all day, running to/from school for carpool, taking kids to their after school activities, helping with homework and then everyone looks at you and asks “What’s for Dinner?” There are some days I have made a dinner plan and then the afternoon became to busy that I didn’t have time. The choice was make dinner or help my kids with homework. I have to admit that happens a little too much around here.
However, on a day that I prep my slow cooker in the morning the idea of dinner is no longer a problem. I find that I am less stressed and it makes it possible for my family to come together at dinner and enjoy a good meal. It is for sure a lifesave for me on some days!
I love that I can quickly prep our dinner in the morning or afternoon , put it in the slow cooker and in several hours and have a delicious dinner to enjoy. This last Sunday I put these Beef Tips in the slow cooker before church and come home to a delicious meal. Oh it smelled so good! #slowcookermeals
Slow Cooker Beef Tips Recipe
- 2 pounds Beef Tips
- 1 onion, sliced
- 8 oz package of sliced mushrooms
- 2 Tbsp. virgin olive oil
- Seasoning Salt & Pepper
- 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
- 1 can beef consume
- 1 can cream of mushroom soup
- 1 envelope dry onion mix
In the slow cooker place the sliced onions and mushrooms along the bottom. In a skillet heat your olive oil to medium high heat. Season the beef tips with Seasoning Salt and pepper. Brown the beef tips on each side and remove from heat – no need to cook through.
Place the meat on top of the onions/mushrooms. Splash a tablespoon or two of the beef consume into the skillet and scrape off any borwned bits – add this to the slow cooker. I like use beef consume instead of beef broth because it has a deeper richer beef flavor.
In a bowl mix the rest of the beef consume,the mushroom soup, the dry onion mix and the Worcestershire sauce. Once it is all mixed pour into the slow cooker.
Cook on low for 4 hours. Once it is cooked the Beef Tips will be in a nice sauce/gravy that is really tasty.
Serve the beef tips over mashed potatoes, egg noodles or rice. My favorite is mashed potatoes.
I want to thank Hamilton Beach for partnering with me on this post. They sent me a new slow cooker to try out. So this last month I have been trying different recipes in one of their most popular products – the Set ‘n Forget® 6 Qt. Programmable Slow Cooker With Spoon/Lid has some amazing features! It is perfect for the someone who is busy all day (like me) and wants a home cooked meal ready for my family at night. This slow cooker has taken a technology leap forward from the outdated slow cookers and has gratefuly replaced the older/outdated one I received from my wedding (17 years ago)
I was excited to try it out because it has a bunch of new settings and features that I was excited to try out. There are 3 different settings – Manual, Program and Probe. For my Slow Cooker Beef Tips recipe I used the program mode and was able to set a timer. You can set the time and temperature.
It will count down as it cooks and once the time is up it instantly switches to warm.
On another Sunday I warmed up a ham. I placed the ham in the slow cooker and used the Probe program. I inserted the temperature probe – yes this slow cooker has a temperature probe! On the package of ham it said what temperature it should be heated to. I simply put that temperature into the crockpot and once it reached that temperature it immediately switched to warm. Once it was ready I added a honey glaze and served my family a delicious ham for dinner.
I think I am most excited about the temperature probe, such an awesome feature! The ham turned out very moist and delicious.
I am so excited to giveawaya Set ‘n Forget® 6 Qt. Programmable Slow Cooker With Spoon/Lid to one of you!
