1/2 cup all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon salt 1/8 teaspoon pepper 4 pounds beef sirloin tips 1/2 cup chopped green onions 1/2 pound sliced fresh mushrooms 1 can (10.5 ounce size) condensed beef broth 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce 2 teaspoons tomato paste or ketchup 1/4 cup dry red wine or water 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour buttered noodles, for accompaniment
Combine 1/2 cup flour with the salt and pepper and toss with beef cubes to coat thoroughly. Place in crock-pot. Add green onions and drained mushrooms.
Combine with beef broth, Worcestershire sauce and tomato paste or ketchup. Pour over beef and vegetables; stir well. Cover and cook on LOW setting for 7 to 12 hours. One hour before serving, turn to HIGH setting. Make a smooth paste of red wine and 3 tablespoons flour; stir into crock-pot, mixing well. Cover and cook until thickened. Serve over hot buttered noodles.
This recipe goes together quickly, and tends to itself in the crockpot, without a fuss. Serve it with rice or another grain if you'd rather, for a change.

Absolutely wonderful. Decided to make this on a whim without the mushrooms and Worcester sauce ( I didn't have them). I added additional beef cubes. Either way this was very very good.

While the beef simmers in the crockpot, it absorbs the flavors of the beef broth, Worcestershire sauce and tomato products. The red wine, mushrooms, and green onions complete the flavor package. Served with a light salad.

I have trouble cooking beef for some reason as it always turns out tough. This recipe turned out great. The beef tips were very tender. The sauce is very good.

I browned the beef tips in oil first (after coating with flour) just as personal preference I like to brown my meats before adding to the slow cooker. The recipe turned out very good.

I can't believe how good this turned out! The beef was so tender and it had a lot of flavor in the sauce.

florida55 January 4, 2010 COMMENT: Why does top of receipe (by clock) says ready in 5 hrs, bottem says cook 7-12 hrs? Would like to try receipe,but this is confusing!!
CDKitchen Staff Reply: It says > 5 hours which means "greater than" five hours. Always follow the specific cooktime listed in the recipe.

I had 2 lbs of beef sirloin tips, so I made the recipe with the full amount of all other ingredients since I like a lot of sauce and vegetables. Didn't have condensed beef broth so used regular beef broth and it was fine. Cooked 5 hours on low, then last 1 hour on high (after adding flour and wine). Served on egg noodles, and it would have been about right for 6 people.

Suggest doubling up on all liquids to obtain proper amount of gravy. West Bend crock pot cooks much faster than others so 4 hours on low is more than enough time. If over cooked, meat tends to liquify. Very good recipe but still feels like something missing.

Excellent, easy and delicious recipe. Just what I was looking for! I had no beef broth, so I substituted 1 cup of warm water, which I used to "rinse out" the dish I seasoned and floured the beef in, just to get all of the seasonings and flour into the crock. Because of differences in cooking temps among slow cookers, I highly recommend checking the beef after about four or five hours, to gauge how much longer you need. Mine was done in 7 hours, and I could have probably turned it off a little sooner, as the smaller pieces of beef were almost too tender. But the flavor was great!
