Crockpot beef tips noodles

1lb stew meat
1 Pack of Lipton onion soup mix
1 Pack of brown gravy mix
1 can of cream of mushroom (10.5 oz can)
1 small can of mushrooms
1 cans worth of beef broth (I dumped the broth into the cream of the mushroom can)

Next time I would use 2lbs of meat but with the same measurements

Crockpot Beef Tips and Noodles


  • 2 lbs stew meat
  • 1 pack of Lipton onion soup mix
  • 1 pack of brown gravy mix
  • 1 can of cream of mushroom soup (10.5 oz can)
  • 1 small can of mushrooms, drained
  • 1 can of beef broth (use the cream of mushroom can for measurement)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 lb egg noodles, cooked according to package instructions
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish, optional)


  1. Prepare the Crockpot:
    • In a large crockpot, combine the stew meat, Lipton onion soup mix, brown gravy mix, cream of mushroom soup, drained mushrooms, and beef broth. Stir to combine all the ingredients.
  2. Season and Mix:
    • Season the mixture with salt and pepper to taste. Stir well to ensure that the seasoning is evenly distributed.
  3. Cook on Low:
    • Cover the crockpot with the lid and cook the mixture on low heat for 8 hours. Cooking on low heat allows the flavors to meld together and the meat to become tender.
  4. Prepare the Noodles:
    • About 30 minutes before the beef tips are done cooking, prepare the egg noodles according to the package instructions. Drain and set aside.
  5. Serve:
    • Once the beef tips are cooked and tender, taste the mixture and adjust the seasoning if necessary. Serve the beef tips and gravy over the cooked egg noodles.
  6. Garnish (Optional):
    • Garnish the dish with chopped fresh parsley for a burst of color and added freshness.

Q1: Can I use a different type of meat for this recipe? A1: Yes, you can use a different type of meat, such as beef sirloin or chuck, in place of stew meat. Just make sure to cut the meat into bite-sized pieces for the best results.

Q2: Can I use homemade gravy instead of the brown gravy mix? A2: Absolutely! You can use homemade gravy if you prefer. You can make it by combining beef broth, flour, and seasonings to create a thick and flavorful gravy.
