SLOW COOKER BEEF TIPS RECIPE
I bet my family has beef tips at least once per month. It is one of my go-t0 favorites, and not only is it delicious, but it also only takes a handful of ingredients. If I am not making Crock Pot beef tips I will use my pressure cooker for Instant Pot Beef Tips.
A good beef tips recipe is all about the seasoning. I love to use Dale’s steak seasoning with beef tips and with my roasts. Not only is it delicious, but the flavors are not overpowering and make everything taste mouthwateringly delicious.

HOW TO MAKE SLOW COOKER BEEF TIPS
This recipe is so easy and it’s a perfect beginner recipe. My college student loves to make these and impress her friends with this delicious meal. It tastes as if you’ve slaved over a stove, and in reality, you spent just a few moments adding the ingredients to your slow cooker.
WHAT KIND OF SEASONING SHOULD I USE FOR BEEF TIPS
About 90% of the time I will use Dale’s Seasoning. If you’re unable to purchase it locally and want something similar, I would use Worcestershire sauce, garlic and onion powder, black pepper, and a little oregano to my taste.
I also have a substitution for the cream of mushroom soup in the recipe card below.
HOW LONG DO I COOK SLOW COOKER BEEF TIPS IN THE CROCK POT
I recommend cooking the beef tips on low for 8 hours, or on high for 4 hours. If you sear the beef tips in a skillet before placing them in the slow cooker, you can shorten that time. For instance, I will sear in the flavors with my skillet and brown the beef tips before placing them into the Crock Pot. I then cook them on high for 3 hours before serving. If I want them to cook all day after searing them, I will place them in the Crock Pot on low for 6 hours.
HOW DO I STORE SLOW COOKER BEEF TIPS
You can store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. You can also freeze these beef tips in an airtight container for up to a month.
