As a busy mom, I love my slow cooker meals! Beef tips remind me of a childhood favorite. I cook them with mushrooms and red wine, then serve over brown rice, noodles or mashed potatoes. —Amy Lents, Grand Forks, North Dakota

"Comfort food at its best! The meat was incredibly tender, and I even used a tougher cut than the sirloin. I used chuck steak. The slow cooker and delicious sauce worked their magic and transformed it into a melt-in-your mouth dish that I will definitely make again and again. Kid approved too!"

"The mushrooms and sauce with the beef tips are PERFECT! It was very good and easy to make! I did find that my sauce was a little runny but I made it again on the stove-top and added a touch more starch to thicken. Goes perfect with garlic mashed potatoes!"

"I am not a fan of beef roast or tips so to be honest, I did not care for this. However, the people I made this for, raved about it. I didn't have a single leftover."
