Slow Cooker Beef Tips And Gravy


Beef tips and gravy. Such a classic, it’s a recipe we have been coming back to time and again – there’s something sentimental and comforting about it that we just can’t get enough of. That being said, when we first started out making this dish we really went all out; made it entirely on the stove top, stirring and simmering for hours, with a homemade gravy to boot that required time and attention to make sure it turned out well. Now that dish did turn out deliciously, but it was just too time-consuming to make more than a couple times a year, which meant less time eating one of our favorite meals…which brings us to this ridiculously tasty – and easy! – slow cooker beef tips and gravy.

Thanks to our trusty slow cooker and a little shortcut we took while we were prepping our ingredients, this recipe is now a total breeze! So what’s that little shortcut, you ask? Instead of making a gravy from scratch, which can sometimes be both a headache and a calorie-bomb, we used McCormick® Simply Better Beef Gravy to help flavor and thicken this dish. And we were so glad we did, because the flavor we ended up with was incredible. This new McCormick gravy has no added MSG, no artificial flavors and is made with McCormick herbs and spices.

Searing the beef tips ahead of time helps lock in flavor (excellent), then adding in the Simply Better gravy with the beef broth means even more flavor (double excellent)! The residual flour we coated the beef in before searing it acts as a natural thickener, so once you let the slow cooker work its magic, you’ve got a thick, hearty gravy sauce that coats the beef perfectly and is juuust right for drizzling over mashed potatoes. It doesn’t get better than this, folks – check it out!
