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.

  1. Sounds yummy, would love to try it!
    Can I used French onion soup mix? I’m currently in Sweden and I can’t find regular onion soup mix but I found the other one. If so, how much should I use? Their packaging here is different so I would need a rough idea of how much (ounces or grams).
    Thank you
