Crockpot Beef Tips in Gravy
The recipe I found was just what I needed. It used ingredients I had (mostly...will get to that in a minute). And though the recipe I found was actually for the oven, I decided I would attempt it in the crockpot. I am glad I did. It was delicious. The gravy was just right, and the meat was tender.
I will definitely make it again. Grocery Challenge or not.
2 lbs beef tenderloin tips (or in my case stew meat)
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 packet brown gravy mix (I actually did not have one and didn't have time to get one but I found a WONDERFUL substitute using ingredients I had at home...I will be making a large batch of it for future use)
1 packet Lipton dry onion mix (I used the onion with mushroom)
1 4 oz mushrooms (I omitted this one since I used the onion with mushrooms soup)
1 cup water
Place the meat in the crockpot. Mix all of the other ingredients and pour over the meat.
Cook on low for 6-8 hours. (Mine was MORE than ready after about 6)
Yes, that is all you do.
We ate ours over rice (mainly because I didn't have time to make mashed potatoes).
