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.

  4. I have tried this twice using gravy in a jar, adding sliced onions and salt/pepper. The recipe tastes great, but my stew meat is very tough and hard for my children to chew. Last time I even cooked it for less time–4 hours on low. Still tough. I have noticed this on a few other recipes where the meat is smaller pieces (as opposed to a whole roast, for example). Do you think my slow cooker could be getting too hot–is that possible, like how ovens sometimes are off-temp, can slow cookers be that way too? I use a ceramic insert, stainless outside adjustable temp cuisinart slowcooker. Any tips for me?
