Slow Cooker Beef Tips and Gravy
Little did I know so many cRockin’ gems were hidden in this book! But of all the recipes we tried, I do believe Miss Add liked this recipe for Slow Cooker Beef Tips and Gravy the best! (I think she may have licked the plate clean!)
Sizzle before you Crock
You start by putting your flour and seasonings in a large ziplock bag and tossing your meat in it to coat. You then brown your meat in the oil in a skillet OR if you have a stove top safe slow cooker, (psst… I am giving one away with a copy of this great cookbook) just place the stove top safe crock on the burner, brown your beef and then pop back in your slow cooker unit. Easy peasy- one pot meal!
While your meat is browning, mix up the remaining ingredients. Place your meat in the slow cooker (if not already there 😉 ) and pour sauce over top. Cook on low for 8-10 hours.
The result? Tender, flavorful Slow Cooker Beef Tips and Gravy just begging for a bed of mashed potatoes. (Psst… my girlfriends and I all have decided that those yummy mashed potatoes by Bob Evans in the refrigerated section at the grocery store are perfect for meals like this.)
