This is one of my husband’s favorite meals and it is shamefully easy and incredibly cheap. You see, my “steak tips” over gravy is nothing more than stew meat slow cooked all day in the crock pot. Stew meat is easy to find on clearance. I usually pick up a few trays of it every few weeks and freeze it that day for this meal. Sometimes I do this with a roast as well, cutting it up into smaller pieces similar to how stew meat is cut.

A Slow Cooker is invaluable when it comes to cooking inexpensive cuts of meat. Meat that normally would yield tough results becomes fall apart tender through this method of cooking. The important thing to note is that tough meat needs fat in order to become tender. This is why roasts cooked in water are tougher than those cooked in gravy. You only need one can, even if you are making an entire roast, as it melds with the meat juices as they cook out as well and produce plenty of liquid.

  1. Wow! I am so touched by your story. That brought back so many memories of the summer trips my parents would scrimp and save all year to take us on. I too am grateful my kids are oblivious. I am going to make this recipe tomorrow and tell them stories about my dad. He would have loved this recipe! Thanks Christy!

  2. Yum Yum one of my favorite dinners. I forget about the crock pot so I cook mine in a pressure cooker for 15 min with a can of french onion soup. I will try the brown gravy next time.

    I am glad you enjoyed your trip to Nashville. I am jealous!!!

  3. Oh Christy I know the sound of that horn. My parents had one also and it was the coolest thing back in the day..

  4. This is the first recipe I made from your cookbook! Husband hunts, and we have most of our venison ground, and some made into stew meat. We’ll be having more cut into stew meat going forward because of this recipe. We’ve got a new preacher at church, and of course will be inviting him and his wife home to eat with us one Sunday. I’ve already decided this is on the menu.

    1. OK, so technically, your cookbook recipe is beef broth & the onion soup mix over the meat in the crockpot. Even though it differs, it’s still great. My childhood memory is getting grape slushes at Sonic where you drive up to the little speaker boxes and order … of course they’re still all over the place today. I clearly remember getting little plastic animal figurines that would fit in the palm of your hand along with the slush, and mine was a little mouse. I’m pretty sure this was before Happy Meals, of course now you get a toy with every kid’s meal.

    1. This story brought tears to my eyes! Thank you for sharing it, and this is one of those recipes that I see and think “Now why didn’t I think of that?”. It sounds soo good! I am sure I will be trying it soon! awwwwwwwwwww and I seen my quote from facebook. You’re too sweet! have a great day! Ticha

    2. I have been doing this for quite awhile. To kick it up a notch put a package of dry Lipton Onion soup in the mixture. Have a great day.
