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

    "My family loved this delicious recipe! We'll be making this all fall and winter. Served with mashed potatoes and caesar salad."

    "We loved this! My husband is unbelievably picky, so when he said it was comfort food at it's best, I knew I'd made a winner! I used a bottom sirloin, so a little cheaper cut and it was perfect. To add a little more flavor to the broth, I did stir in a Tbsp of beef bouillon powder and I had to use quite a bit more cornstarch to thicken the broth to a nice gravy consistency. I made slow cooker Garlic Mashed Potatoes along side this and all I had to do for dinner after work was thicken the juice and heat up a veggie. Perfect!"

    "This recipe was delicious. It was easy to put together and made the whole house smell divine as it cooked. The meat was so tender, I forgot it was sirloin! My roommate hates mushrooms but she raved over this dish. This one goes in the regular rotation."

    "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!"
