Slow Cooker Beef Tips and Gravy

Slow Cooker Beef Tips and Gravy (Crock Pot)

Now that my kids are back to school and I’m back to work I dread dinner time.  We get home, we do homework and then I realize it’s time to eat.  Ugh.  I forgot about dinner.  So this year I’ve decided I’m going to do a lot more slow cooker/crock pot cooking.  I forget about how easy it is to throw everything in there in the morning and when we get home, boom, dinner is ready.

I found this recipe over on All the Cooks and I wanted to give it a try.  I’m always looking for new crock pot recipes.

I love meat and gravy over mashed potatoes.  It’s pure comfort food and perfect during the Fall or Winter.

This recipe is super easy and tasted pretty good.  I don’t think I’d give it 5 stars, though.  It was a tad salty for me but we still gobbled it up.

  1. Wow, that looks delicious. I bet the kids loved it.

  2. My husband loves to order this when we eat out. Now I can make it for him at home…he’s gonna be sooo happy with me. =) Thanks and thanks again.

  3. This looks really good. I’ll have to make this with the beef tips I have!

  4. This is going on the menu now! Looks delish!

  5. Can I use something other than cream of mushroom soup?

    • I’m not sure. I think you can google a substitute (a friend of mine does this since she’s gluten free.)

    • Search “cream of something mix” on Pinterest. You can make your own substitute.

  6. Looks delicious! How many people is this supposed to serve? Thinking of making it for 4 of us, but I am unfamiliar with how much stew meat to use.

    I make this with venison steaks cut into cubes and it’s fantastic!! Great way to use up that deer meat..

  8. This is really delicious! Ive made it with & withou ginger ale, its great both ways. Huge hit at my house!

  9. My gravy looks nothing like yours (not dark brown) and I made it the exact same way. Also mine had turned out “runny” rather than thick like your picture looks. Anyway to fix this?

    • I’m so sorry. I don’t know. I posted exactly what I did so I’m not sure why yours was different.

  10. Hello,

    I was wondering is there a specific kind of ginger ale you use? Gonna make this on Tuesday, looks delish !

  11. beth h. says:

    Made this yesterday and it WAS easy and delicious! ! I will definitely use your recipe again! ! Thanks for sharing.

  12. Michelle Hodgkins says:

    Does the ginger ale make it sweet I don’t like sweet meat or gravy I like savory

    • I didn’t think it was sweet but I guess if you don’t want the sugar you could use diet?

  13. This one’s a keeper! Doubled it for a small crowd and it was a hit. Thanks!

  14. What if I cook this on high would that cut the time in half?

  15. You think it’d turn out ok if I doubled the recipe?

  16. What size of brown gravy packet do I use?

  17. I have a really dumb question as I’m new to crock pot cooking. Are you supposed to make up the soup and gravy mixes before adding, or just add the dry to the crock pot?

  18. Can’t wait to try , in crock pot now !,,

  19. Are Beef Tips a special cut of meat? Can I use a roast cut up into chunks? How big should I make them?
