How To Slow Cook Beef Tips
While most of the cooking IS done in the slow cooker, this crockpot beef tips recipe starts in a skillet. I used a chuck roast for this recipe that was cut into bite-sized pieces. I started the cooking process in the skillet so that I could be sure the beef tips were well seasoned and that they were browned just a touch so that seasoning would better adhere to the meat. That seasoning was salt and pepper, but I used two teaspoons of cracked black pepper so that the flavor would be bold and strong. Onions and garlic were also thrown in the mix to help flavor the beef.
The sauce or “gravy” is made with beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, and red wine. The red wine does a wonderfully rich and woodsy flavor, however, if you do not want to use the wine, a couple of tablespoons of balsamic vinegar can be used instead.
As far as the process god, once the meat, garlic, and onions have browned, they go into the crockpot along with the liquid and that is it!
Crockpot Beef Tips Served with Noodles
I chose to serve these beef tips with egg noodles. Because egg noodles have an elongated corkscrew shape that holds the wine infused sauce in every curve. However, noodles aren’t the only way to soak it all up! Mashed potatoes and polenta are equally fine options!
Beef Fact and Cooking Tips
- Beef is an important part of a healthy diet for kids. Research shows that enjoying lean beef daily can help lower cholesterol levels.
- Preparing healthy meals ahead of time can help avoid eating unhealthy foods on days you’re short on time. A 3-ounce serving of beef provides more than 10 essential nutrients and half the daily recommended value of protein for less than 150 calories.
- Ohio beef farmers are committed to providing excellent care for their animals, protecting the environment for future generations and producing safe, healthy beef. U.S. beef farmers have improved sustainability by fivepercent in the past six years to help feed a growing world population.
- When using a slow cooker, set the heat to low as often as possible. A slow, gentle heat really brings out the flavors.
- Don’t over-crowd the cooker! A slow cooker works best when it’s between ½ and 2/3 full of ingredients.
- Preheat the slow cooker. Rather than adding all of the ingredients and then turning on the heat, give your cooker an extra 20 minutes to warm up.
