Stew meat and mushrooms simmers away in a slow cooker all day, and is then finished off with a little flour for thickening. Served atop egg noodles, this Slow Cooker Beef Tips is a reminiscent of my mom’s beef stroganoff. During cooler months, I make this recipe once every week or two because it’s super easy – dump everything in the slow cooker, set it, and go. 


Despite what you see in the photos, my favorite way to serve this is actually over egg noodles. Add a side salad or roasted vegetables and you have a pretty well-rounded, satisfying meal. It’s may not be the prettiest dish, but it is an easy and comforting meal for a cool night.

Recipe Notes:

While I follow the original recipe pretty closely, I do make a few changes: 

  • I increase the amount of mushrooms in the recipe, from 8 oz., to 12-16 oz. (either one large package of presliced mushrooms, or two smaller packages).
  • Before serving, I thicken the sauce with a couple tablespoons of cornstarch. We prefer a thicker sauce that will stick to egg noodles a little better, as that’s our preferred way to serve this dish.
