Beef Tips in the Crock Pot

That's just a big pile of comfort food right there!  The great thing is, the beef tips were prepared in the crock-pot.  Just throw everything in and forget about it!  My favorite way to prepare dinner ;-)  The other great thing is they were flavorful, tender, and were approved by 2 out 3 picky children.  (and we all know Mr. Three's vote doesn't count since he will only eat about 4 things in the universe.)
Speaking of 4 things, that's all the ingredients you need to make this!


(Crock Pot) Beef Tips in Mushroom Sauce 


recipe source: LaaLoosh 

Ingredients:
2 pounds lean chuck – cut in 1-2 inch pieces (I used beef stew meat in pic)
1 can 98% fat free cream of mushroom soup
1 pkg. onion soup mix
1 can Diet Sprite or 7up *or Sierra Mist
*You could also add any veggies you want. 
Put meat in crock pot. Pour soup & onion soup mix over meat. Add Diet Sprite/7up/Sierra Mist. Cook in crock pot all day on low (or high for at least 4 hours). Turn off and let sit for 30 minutes before serving. {If you want thicker gravy, you could remove meat, place gravy in a skillet with a little cornstarch and heat until thickened. I didn't do this.)
I served the beef tips with mashed potatoes (instant...they were not good!) and cornbread...which was delish, and some not-pictured green beans, canned (I was in a hurry that night!).

  3. Looks terrific...I love anything that can be made with a crock pot. Does the sprite serve as a tenderizer? Visiting from "On the Menu Monday" and am your newest follower! Please visit me at Still Woods Farmhouse sometime!

    1. Thanks for visiting! I'm not sure what the purpose of the soda is, but it was nice and tender.
