Stewed Beef Tips with Sweet Peppers and Onions
I’m always trying to turn an old favorite recipe into a new favorite recipe by tweaking ingredients. Stewed Beef is always a hit at my house and tonight I took my family’s favorite beef tips in brown gravy and put a little spin on it. I usually cook this meal over the stove and let it simmer on low for hours. Well today’s recipe was cooked not over the stove, but in the Crockpot which made it a fix-it-and-forget-it meal.
I’m used to cooking on the stove and old habits are hard to break. But, lets face it. When you have a busy family life being able to throw a few ingredients in a pot and walk away is a great option. So, I whipped out my crock pot threw in my ingredients and went on with my chores. Three hours later we had tender, delicious, beef with a thick, rich, mouth-watering gravy. My family loved it! They even asked for seconds. I decided to serve over Quinoa instead of rice for a healthier option, but, rice or potatoes would have been great also.
This is a recipe that I will be keeping in my recipe box for a repeat appearance. On busy nights when I’m tired and I don’t’ feel like cooking I can let my crock pot do all the work.
