Try this great easy and flavorful slow cooker beef tip recipe. Perfect for those busy holiday meals.
2 lbs beef tips (cubed sirloin)
1 (12-ounce) bag frozen pearl onions (unthawed)
1/4 cup tomato paste
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
8 ounces J&A Hot Garlic Mushrooms
1 1/2 cups beef broth
2 to 4 tablespoons cornstarch
- In a 6- to 7-quart slow cooker, place the beef tips, frozen pearl onions, tomato paste, garlic powder, onion powder, dried thyme, salt and pepper; stir until beef and onions are coated in the tomato paste and seasonings.
- Pour the beef broth over all. Place the lid on the slow cooker and cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 6 to 8 hours.
- When the beef is tender, thicken the liquid with a cornstarch slurry. To do so, place 2 tablespoons cornstarch in a small bowl and ladle 1/4 cup of the hot liquid from the slow cooker into the bowl. Use a small whisk or fork to mix the cornstarch into the liquid until dissolved. Pour the cornstarch slurry into the mixture in the slow cooker and mix until incorporated. Add the J&A Hot Garlic Mushrooms and set slow cooker to high setting, cover, and cook for 30 minutes or until liquid is thickened. (If you prefer even thicker gravy, repeat the cornstarch slurry step.)
- Serve over mashed potatoes, other mashed veggies, or cooked noodles.
