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.

These Easy Slow Cooker Beef Tips recipe is one that my mom used to make when I was little. It’s a total throwback dish, but I’ve updated a little bit. No cream of anything soup involved in this one…instead I use cream cheese to add richness and flavor. I also add tons of cremini mushrooms, which you can totally omit if you’re not a fan.

Now, to thicken this beef tips recipe up a little bit I add a mixture of cornstarch and water. Then let it continue cooking for 30 or so minutes, until it’s thickened up.

When you’re ready to eat, stir in some cream cheese to thicken it a little more and make it rich and creamy. You could also use sour cream in place of the cream cheese.

This slow cooker beef tips recipe is such an easy and classic beef dinner idea. I use top round steak (aka London Broil), but you could also use stew meat, sirloin, or chuck roast.

    We made this today (07-20-2020), and it was really, really good. I was quite surprised. My wife made it, and I didn’t expect it to be so good. This is our first recipe that we’ve tried from your website. We had some London Broil meat, and she looked up recipes. And, I’m so glad that she found it. This is something that we will make again. And, we can use any meat (I think) that we just throw in it, and it will be good. Best suggestion is to serve it with mashed potatoes. We did both egg noodles (had some left-over) and MP (same too). And, the E-N ate up the sauce so we didn’t have much, but the sauce worked exquisitely-well on the MP and didn’t disappear.

    However, next time, I think we’ll add more water & cornstarch at end where we get more gravy. And, this might even be one of our Doggie Meals — but we drop the onions, mushrooms, etc., where they can enjoy it too.

    Sincerely, thank you. Like wife just said, our dogs were both trying to eat this, because the smell permeated the entire house and happiness to me (because I get to eat something good). But, it brought tremendous joy to the Dogsters too.

  2. 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!

    1. 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 ! ?

    1. You could just thicken it up with the corn starch and not add it…or you could add 1/2 cup heavy cream!

    1. 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!

  3. 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…?
