When I was a kid, I wasn’t a fan of red meat. In fact, I had my first steak when I was 21 years old and to this day I still have never tried a Big Mac. I wasn’t anti-red meat, I just didn’t like it. Or so I thought.
My mom made these crockpot beef tips when I would come home from college and man, oh man, did my entire view of red meat change. This dish is tender, flavorful and suuuuuper easy. Pop it in the crockpot on low on your way out the door for work, or on high for 2 hours.
I like to serve my beef tips over creamy mashed potatoes with steamed green beans and a buttermilk biscuit drizzled with honey on the side.
Let me know if you give it a try!
