If you’re looking for an easy, filling and comforting meal the whole family will enjoy, look no further than this Crock Pot Beef Tips and Gravy. A longtime southern favorite, this meal is full of tender, fall apart chunks of beef, coated in a thick gravy, and served over rice. I like to throw some peas on the side or a small side salad to round out the meal. Crock Pot Beef Tips and Gravy is also delicious served over egg noodles or mashed potatoes.
This recipe is totally simple. There’s no need to precook anything and about 5 minutes of prep time is all you need. I like a super thick gravy so I do spend a few minutes at the end thickening the gravy. I
follow Brandy’s (The Country Cook ) method of thickening gravy for Crock Pot Beef Tips. She makes a roux using 2 tablespoons of butter and 3 heaping tablespoons of flour. Then 2 cups of the liquid from the crock pot is added. It makes a super thick and tasty gravy. You can always add extra cooking liquid if you want a thinner gravy.
We don’t eat a ton of red meat, but this is one of my favorite beef recipes. It makes a hearty meal and doesn’t break the bank. I usually make it when chuck roast goes on sale. You can use other types of meat too- anything labeled beef tips or stew meat and round steak works as well.
