Crock Pot Beef Tips
Today's recipe is for Crock Pot Beef Tips. I am cooking this as we speak although I haven't tried it yet. It is smelling SO good....so here is the recipe:
Stew meat (I'm probably using 2.5 lbs or so)
1 envelope onion soup (I am using Mrs. Grass's)
1 can golden mushroom soup
1/2 cup red wine
1 can mushrooms (I'm omitting this but would rather use fresh than canned)
Mix all together in crock pot and cook all day on low. Serve over rice or noodles.
Now, here are the changes I made. I seasoned the meat with salt, pepper and garlic powder and browned them in oil first to bring out the flavor of the meat. I also used the red wine to deglaze the pan before adding it to the crockpot. I also doubled the soup & wine but not the soup mix because I had seasoned the meat when I browned it. Also, I didn't start this until 1:00 pm so I am cooking it on high for about 6.5 hours. I will update this post later this evening to let you know how it went!
Update: It was very tasty!!! Everyone agreed that this recipe was a keeper. Next time, I will season the meat just a bit less and I will use 3 cans Golden Mushroom soup and 2 cups wine, and stick with one package of the onion soup mix (I think more than 1 pkg would be overpowering). I used 2 cans soup and 2 cups of red wine, but there was hardly any leftover!!
