My mom bought a one-pound package of chuck steak on sale and we needed to figure out what to do with it. We weren’t sure how tender it would be so she suggested the slow cooker.
I started out by trimming and cutting up the chuck steak and put it in the slow cooker with the soup, onions, mushrooms, soup and red wine. If you prefer, you can use beef stock instead of red wine.
We freeze wine in ice cube trays so it’s easy to add them to a dish like this. Have a look at Food & Wine for examples.
I cooked on high for three hours, added a little bit of flour for thickening and cooked for another 45 minutes. Let it cool a bit before adding the sour cream since you don’t want to curdle it.
I’ve plated the gravy and beef tips over mashed potatoes with a sprinkling of chopped green onions, rough cracked pepper and red sea salt.
This is really good and I’m going to look forward to having the leftovers tomorrow!
Frequently Asked Questions
This can be any cut of beef, cut into bite sized pieces. You can use tenderloin, sirloin or, as I’ve done here, chuck roast. You could use stew meat that’s already been butchered but then you don’t usually know the cut. It’s better to buy the roast and cut it yourself.
Usually beef tips would be the same thing as stew meat, except that beef tips are pieces of a higher quality, tender cut, such as tenderloin. But, you never really know unless you cut it yourself. The term “beef tips” has become more trendy but it’s basically the same.

Crockpot Beef Tips and Mushroom Gravy
- Electric slow cooker (crockpot)
- 1 pound Chuck Steak, trimmed and cut in bite-sized pieces
- 1/4 cup Onion, chopped
- 21 ounces Cream of Mushroom Soup
- 4 ounces Mushrooms, sliced
- 3/4 cup Red Wine, or beef stock
- 1 teaspoon Pepper
- 1/8 cup All Purpose Flour
- 1/4 cup Water
- 1/2 cup Sour Cream
- Trim fat from steak and cut in bite-sized pieces. Place in slow cooker.
- Chop onion. Add to slow cooker.
- Add soup, mushrooms, wine and pepper to slow cooker. Stir. Cook on high for 3 hours, stirring occasionally.
- In a small bowl, mix flour with water using a fork until all the lumps are removed and a paste is formed. Temper the flour mixture by adding about 3 tablespoons of liquid from the slow cooker a total of three times, mixing well after each time. This heats up the flour paste so it doesn't create lumps when adding too quickly.
- Add tempered flour mixture to slow cooker and stir well. Cook for 45 more minutes.
- Turn off slow cooker and allow to cool for 15 minutes. Stir in sour cream.
- Serve immediately.
