Yield :

  • 5 servings | Serving Size: 1 cup beef tips and broth and ¾ cup brown rice |

Ingredients :

  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • 8 oz baby Bella mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lb sirloin steak, cut in strips, excess fat trimmed
  • Salt & pepper
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ cup dry red wine + splash for deglazing
  • 2-½ cups fat free beef broth
  • 2 tbsp corn starch + ¼ cup cold water, whisked together

Preparation :

  • Place the onions and mushrooms into the bottom of a 4.5 quart slow cooker.

     

  • Then, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Generously season the steak strips with salt and pepper and add them to the hot skillet, and sear the meat on all sides, about 3 minutes; do not cook through.
  • Place the meat into the slow cooker on top of the vegetables.

     

  • Splash a couple tablespoons of red wine into the hot skillet and scrape the bottom to remove any browned meat bits. Add these to the crock pot.

     

  • Season the beef with pepper a second time and add the Worcestershire sauce, red wine, and beef broth. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.

     

  • Uncover and slowly whisk in the cornstarch and water mixture. Cover and cook on high for another 45 minutes or until the gravy has thickened.

     

  • Serve the beef tips over brown rice (shown), buttered egg noodles, or mashed potatoes.
