Crock Pot Beef Tips and Gravy

Crock Pot Beef Tips and Gravy is a simple slow cooker recipe that is made with chuck roast, beef broth, cream of mushroom soup and seasoning.

Prep Time: 15minutes
Cook Time: 8hours
Total Time: 8hours 15minutes
Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ pounds beef chuck roast
  • 1 ½ tablespoons lemon pepper seasoning (you can just use salt and pepper if you prefer)
  • 1 packet dry onion soup mix
  • 10.5 ounce can cream of mushroom soup (lower sodium)
  • 14 ounce can beef broth (low sodium)

To thicken gravy:

  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 3 Tablespoons flour

Instructions

  • In a 5 quart slow cooker, combine dry onion soup mix, cream of mushroom soup and beef broth. Whisk to combine (don’t worry if there are lumps, they will come out as it cooks).
  • Cut beef into about 1-inch cubes (or smaller if you prefer). Sprinkle lemon pepper seasoning on beef.
  • Add meat to crock pot and give it all a good stir.
  • Cover and cook on low for 8 hours. You can serve this up just as it is when it is ready or you can easily thicken up the gravy part.
  • About 20 minutes before serving, in a medium pot, melt two tablespoons of butter. Once it is melted, add in about 3 heaping tablespoons of flour. Whisk it together.
  • Then pour in 2 cups of the beef broth mixture from crock pot into the butter/flour mixture. Whisk it again until smooth, then bring the heat up to high (while whisking briskly the whole time.) It should quickly begin to thicken
  • Once it gets to your desired thickness, take it off the heat and pour it back into then crock pot.
  • Stir well then serve over rice or noodles or all by itself!

Notes

  • Serve over rice, mashed potatoes or egg noodles!
  • Cream of chicken can be substituted for the cream of mushroom.
  • Lower sodium options can be used where applicable.
  • To make on the stovetop: Season the cuts of beef with lemon pepper seasoning. Add a little oil to a large pot. Brown the beef tips in a large pot. Remove them to a plate. Add the cream of mushroom soup, beef broth and onion soup mix to the pot. Whisk together well. Add the beef back to the pot. Cover and cook on low heat for about an hour. Right before they are done, whisk together melted butter and flour. Add this mixture into the pot. Turn the heat up on the pot to medium-high until the mixture thickens. Then serve.
  • To make in the oven: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Season the beef tips with lemon pepper seasoning. In a large oven safe pot or baking dish add the stew meat. In a bowl whisk together the the cream of mushroom soup, beef broth and onion soup mix. Pour this over the beef tips. Cover pot with a lid (or aluminum foil) and cook on the middle shelf for about an hour. If you need to thicken the sauce, follow my directions above for the butter/flour mixture to add to the pot.
  • To thicken the gravy, you can just mix together 3 Tablespoons of cornstarch with 3 Tablespoons water and add this to the slow cooker then turn on high until gravy is thickened. The butter/flour mixture just adds a little more flavor but it’s not absolutely necessary.
