We do not eat a lot of red meat in our house, and Mr.Picky refuses to eat roast. These beef tips are the closest things to roast or stew I will be ever to cook again. This is a crock pot recipe, and needs no attention (no-peeking). The meat is so tender, and the sauce is pretty amazing. I either serve these over mashed potatoes (when Mr.Picky is not home) or egg noodles.
No-Peeking Beef Tips:
- 2 lbs. stew meat
- 1 (10 3/4 oz.) can of mushroom soup
- 1 envelope of onion soup mix
- 12 can of lemon-lime soda or stock of your choice
Place stew meat in the bottom of slow cooker, and then sprinkle with onion soup mix.
Mix mushroom soup and soda together and spoon on top of meat.
Close the lid and cook on high for 4 hrs. or about 6-7 on low. Do not lift the lid or stir until done.
*I have added some sautéed mushrooms at the end, and even some sour cream to make it into a stroganoff.
*I did not have any soda the last time I made these and used some vegetable stock, turned out a little different but just as good. Probably could use club soda as well and cut that sugar out.
* Substitute cream of celery or cream of chicken for the mushroom soup.
This recipe came out of my favorite slow cooker recipe book Fix-It and Forget-It Big Cookbook by Phyllis Pellman Good.
