Sure, I like my recipes to be elegant, but when you’re a busy mom, fast and easy is even more important.Fortunately, in this case, you get all three. Because thisEasy Crockpot Beef Tips With Gravy recipe is a super easy, hearty meal that practically makes itself—but also comes out impressive enough to serve to company. And all you need are a handful of ingredients to make it!
It takes about ten minutes to toss everything into the crock at the start of the day (except the cornstarch). If you’ve got the beef and onion already cut up, then it only takes three minutes. Then it just cooks all by itself for seven hours, and at dinnertime, all you have to do is stir in your cornstarch with a bit of water to thicken up the gravy.
Serve this hot over egg noodles or mashed potatoes, and you’ll have a meal your family and friends will be gushing over!
2 lbs beef stew meat
1 10.75 oz can condensed cream of mushroom soup
1 .88 oz packet brown gravy mix – some packets range to 1 oz, and that’s still ok to use
1 cup beef broth
1 small onion diced ( about 1/3 cup)
1-2 cloves of garlic minced
1 Tablespoon cornstarch mixed with 1 Tablespoon water (you can also use 2TB of flour with 1/4 cup water)
Egg noodles or mashed potatoes prepared.

In a medium bowl, combine cream of mushroom soup, gravy mix, beef broth, onion and garlic. Whisk together. It’s ok if it’s a little lumpy, while it’s cooking in the slow cooker, the lumps will mix in.
Place your stew meat into a 4 quart crockpot. Pour gravy mixture over beef and gently stir to combine. Cook covered on LOW for 7 hours. Once done cooking, remove beef with a slotted spoon and set aside. Stir in cornstarch/water mixture (this will thicken up the gravy.) Replace beef back into crockpot and continue cooking for 5 more minutes while gravy thickens.
Serve over egg noodles or mashed potatoes.
