Beef tips and gravy is an easy crock pot recipe. This recipe for beef tips and gravy is delicious over mashed potatoes, pasta or rice.  Of course, we love these beef tips and gravy over mashed potatoes because my family loves potatoes any way you fix them.  This is a delicious recipe you can serve guests or make it on a weeknight for an easy weeknight meal when you get home from a busy day.  We love this gravy and I have to make a lot along with the beef tips.  You might also like Crock Pot Chicken and Noodles.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 1/2 pounds stew meat or sirloin tips
  • 1 medium onion cut in rings
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons olive oil or cooking oil
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 10.5 ounce cans beef broth
  • 1 package onion soup mix
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch optional

Instructions
 

  • Heat oil in skillet and brown onions. Remove onions and put in crock pot. In a bowl whisk together the flour, salt, garlic powder and black pepper. Dredge the meat in the flour mixture and cook in skillet where you browned the onions until browned.
  • Add meat to crock pot. If you have flour left in the bowl from dredging the meat leave it in the bowl and add the 2 cans of beef broth, 1 package of onion soup mix, 1/2 cup water, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce and whisk all together. Pour over meat and onions in the crock pot
  • Cook on low for 6 to 7 hours or high for 4 to 5 hours. If you want the gravy to be thicker, remove a 1/2 cup gravy and whisk in 1 tablespoon cornstarch and add back to the crock pot. Cook on high for 10 to 15 minutes longer. Makes about 8 servings.

    When you say 1 package of onion soup mix, do you mean 1 of the 2 packages in the box, or one box of onion soup mix?

  2. Rebecca Ledee says:

    Can you add egg noodles to the slow cooker with the beef tips? I’ve made it several times and everyone loved it.

    1. Yes, but they cook in about 10 minutes so add them after the beef tips are done and watch them very closely. Thanks!

      1. Rebecca Ledee says:

        I will. Thank you so much for your help

  3. Beatrice M Hunter says:

    Having your recipes in my inbox has taught me so much about how to recover my Mama’s cooking again. The instructions and the outcome are so very easy and delicious. My family thanks you and I thank you so very much. Fantastic.5 stars

    1. Thank you SO MUCH for this very kind comment! It absolutely made our day!! We’re thrilled you enjoy our recipes and you find them easy to follow and delicious. THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      I’ve never froze this dish but I don’t see why it wouldn’t freeze fine. Thanks!

  4. So easy to make and DELICIOUS! A definite keeper. I used boxes of beef broth – one was unsalted and one was 50% less sodium. Had great flavor !5 stars

  5. Was very tasty and my husband and picky daughter loved it! Next time I will double the onion slices, double the meat, and do something to make the gravy thicker. I made this in a 6 quart crockpot so had to add more liquid than your recipe called for. Was wonderful over egg noodles!4 stars

  6. Love this recipe!! Family devours it. I add mushrooms (canned or fresh) then at the end I put in egg noodles. I just made it and the house smells so good.5 stars

  7. Donna Moss says:

    I have made this recipe twice, both times with venison,(deer) and it melted in your mouth! Was absolutely delicious! Thank you so much for sharing with us!5 stars

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      That sounds so good! We’re so happy it was a hit for you!

  8. Made this yesterday for dinner. It was an absolute hit! So good, will make this again for sure. Thank you for a fabulous recipe, truly it is a keeper. My sister has also asked that I give her a copy of this, great family meal!5 stars

  9. Diane Jaqua says:

    Can you use ground beef instead of beef tips my husband does not like beef tips or sirloin tips. Thank you

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      You can always try it, but I would cook the ground beef before adding it to the crock pot.

  10. Can you make this ahead and freeze before crock potting it? Or can you freeze after cooking?

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      I have never tried doing either, but it may work just fine.

  11. We are going into winter over here in Australia. This looks and sounds perfect for a slow cooker style meal. Thank you for your recipes. I love them. Not a Southerner, but from NYS. I do love to have some American meals on the menu.5 stars

    1. Ok, what can I say that hasn’t been said? My mom lives with us and rarely likes anything I make…. seriously and I think I’m a decent cook. Well… she went on and on and on ambit hour good this was. She even said, next time we have company you need to make this. I agreed. My husband liked it too but Mom really loved it. Thanks for the great recipe.5 stars

    2. You will love this. I think the Soy Sauce and Worcestershire Sauce makes all the difference from the other beef tip recipes. It certainly is a favorite in our home.5 stars

  12. K. Collier says:

    Do you think it would be ok to leave out the soy sauce? I wanna make this but hubby hates soy sauce.

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      I’ve only made it as the recipe is written but you can certainly try it!

  13. Stephanie Bowerso says:

    Can this be made in the insta pot?

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      I’m sure it can, we don’t have one so I can’t tell you how to do it.

  14. Thank you so much for this recipe! I made it on Sunday and it was delicious and my family loved it. I did exactly as your recipe said which made the gravy perfect so there was no need to add cornstarch. New recipe added in rotation5 stars

  15. Judy Weintraub says:

    Just wondering what I could substitute for flour as my family is on the Keto diet! Everything else is perfect for keto except the flour!!! Lease advise.

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      I can’t advise because I’ve never made it without the flour. Good luck!

  16. Mark R. Naegel says:

    Appetizing and delicious as well!!! Thanks, Sheila!!!5 stars

  17. Sunny Patterson says:

    I made this for Sunday dinner! I doubled the recipe, but changed nothing! It was a hit!! Amaze balls !!! Thank you for such a wonderful recipe!5 stars

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      So glad it was such a hit!

  18. Making it now and can’t WAIT to try it. Especially after the reviews. I’ll post again after we eat it all down!!!

  19. This is amazing! I did use the no salt broth and for the meat, I used deer. I also doubled it for my family. Was absolutely loved by all! Thanks for sharing, definitely adding to my rotation!5 stars

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      Sounds delicious! Thank you for the kind comment. We’re thrilled you enjoyed it!

  20. What else is pictured with this meal? Looks like something with corn in it?

  21. Would this recipe be just as successful, taking the same steps, but using a beef roast?

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      Yes, I would think that would work fine!

  22. Thank you so much for a wonderful recipe!5 stars

  23. : This was super easy, and very tasty! I would add more meat though and don’t cut your meat up too small. This makes a lot of gravy and I was left with way more gravy than meat. So I would use at least 2 pounds of stew meat. I served this over mashed potatoes and with a side of green beans. This made a wonderful easy weeknight dinner with wonderful flavor!5 stars

  24. I’m not sure if this is a stupid question but do you have to brown the onions and meat before you put it in the crockpot or can you just put it all in fresh? I cooked both the onions and meat but was just wondering for quicker time. Thanks!

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      Yes, you can do it without browning first, Sarah

    2. Browning the onions and meat first really punches up the flavor though.

  25. One of the best recipes I have tried. I did add one can of
    Beef consume and OMG delicious and I served it over rice this time.5 stars

  26. Christy Goza says:

    Great recipe! Pinned to my favorite list now.5 stars

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      So glad you enjoyed it!
