3 pounds beef tips*, cubed
2 cans condensed Cream of Mushroom soup (or make your own!)
28 ounces beef broth
2 envelopes onion soup mix
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup water, optional
*Beef Tips is a cut that can mean a lot of different things, evidently. I like to buy stew meat that is cut into very small pieces. I have also used round steak and sirloin that I diced myself.
Turn slow cooker on high. Put beef into heated slow cooker and season to taste.
I a medium bowl, whisk the mushroom soup, beef broth and onion soup mix until well blended.
Pour over beef and stir to coat.
Just before serving, if you would like the sauce to be a bit thicker, mix together the water and flour at the bottom of the ingredient list. Add to the slow cooker and stir. Let it come to a low boil. you could also use liquid from the slow cooker in place of the water.
I don't have a picture of the finished product! We eat it over cooked egg noodles but it would be good over pasta or rice as well. Next time I make it, I will take a finished picture and add it here.
