Reviews for Slow Cooker Beef Tips
"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!"
"Easy to make and very tender."
"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!"
"My family loved this! When my grown daughter left for the evening, she "stole" the leftovers for her lunch at work the next day! Simple and easy and delicious!! Will make often."
"This was good and easy. Everyone liked it. Thanks"
"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."
