Creamy Beef Tips Recipe

I know summer isn’t “officially” over. But it is. Over. For me. Once school starts and I get one chilly day, it’s ON.

We’re only a few days into September and my house is decorated with scarecrows, pumpkins, and I have a fall-scented candle burning. Let’s just ignore the fact that in a few days the temperatures will be back in the high 80s and enjoy the fact that I am inside, under a blanket with my slow cooker going and Pumpkin Dump Cake in the oven.

    Made this for a dinner guest on Monday night. It was wonderfully delicious! I doubled the mushrooms because I love them and I thickened with full Fat plain Greek yogurt. It was a complete success and a keeper for me!

      Okay so I’m a terrible cook and a picky eater. ( I hate vegetables lol) this was AMAZING. Couldn’t even taste the onions or mushrooms. There is only two of us so I cut the recipe in half. Will make it with porkchops very soon. Plus it’s less than $15 to make! Thank you so much ! ?

      Nope! The meat produces enough liquid on its own. If you are using a very lean cut of meat and it appears dry you can certainly add a cup of beef broth, but I never have!

    Hiya Sally..What a treat it was..I made this with mince instead and used a bit of Bechamel as I did not have cream cheese. Loved it to bits. Thanks for such a beautiful blog..I check it everyday…?
