How to Make Beef Tips in the Slow Cooker

This takes just two cans of soup: cream of mushroom and French onion, a bit of water and beef tips. Add that to the slow cooker. Set it and forget it.

When the beef is tender, they are done.

If you would like a saucy and thick gravy, mix a tablespoon of corn starch or flour with two tablespoons of water. Add that to the beef tip mixture to thicken the gravy. I let this do its magic while I make the mashed potatoes, pasta, or rice and my vegetable side dishes.

Within 30 minutes of coming home, we are enjoying this warm and hearty meal.
