How To Make This Delicious Sirloin Beef Tips Recipe!

When you begin to make this slow cooker recipe, make sure to spray your slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray.

Then, in a medium mixing bowl, mix together the flour, salt, garlic powder, and ground pepper.

Using this spice mixture, dredge the meat tips through the flour being sure to coat all the sides of each piece.

Now, in a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat and then brown the tips for a couple of minutes and then place them into the slow cooker. You are not trying to cook them all the way through at this point.

Next, dump the onions and mushrooms on top of the browned sirloin in the slow cooker.

In a small mixing bowl, mix together the broth, Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, red wine vinegar, and water.

Once that is done, pour the mixture over top of the meat in the slow cooker.

Finish this portion off by sprinkling a little Italian seasoning over top and turning the slow cooker on low for 7-8 hours.

After the meat is done cooking, mix together the cornstarch with water in a separate bowl.

Strain the meat out of the slow cooker and hold it in a small bowl while you are making the gravy.

Pour the cornstarch mix into the juices at the bottom of the slow cooker and mix everything together well with a whisk.

Once the gravy has formed, add the sirloin tips back into the slow cooker and turn it on high for another 10 minutes to allow the gravy to thicken.

Now, just serve with your favorite sides and dig in. (We suggest some delicious mashed potatoes!)

This slow cooker beef is a family favorite and a great recipe to use when you have an uncooked chuck roast in the freezer. This easy recipe will provide you with the kind of meat that is fork tender. The rich flavor from the beef stock will be mouth tender and the best part is the rich flavor at the end of a long day.

One of the best instant pot beef tips that I can give to you, is to store the leftovers in an airtight container. You’re likely to have a busy day in the future, when you don’t want to go to your local grocery stores, and this delicious recipe will be waiting for you.

You can reheat it in your slow cooker on medium high heat until it is cooked through. The cook time will depend on a smaller or larger roast. The only thing you need to do is cook it for enough time that it is hotter than room temperature. You can check the internal temperature with a meat thermometer.

After simmering in your slow cooker all day, the beef tips literally fall apart when you touch them! Serve over mashed potatoes for a perfect and hearty meal.

Prep Time 10 minutes mins

Cook Time 8 hours hrs

Total Time 8 hours hrs 10 minutes mins



  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3 pounds beef tips or stew meat cubed
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion diced
  • 1 cup fresh mushrooms
  • 10.5 ounces beef broth condensed
  • 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons water
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 2 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 Tablespoons cold water


  • Spray slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray.

  • In a medium bowl, mix together flour, salt, garlic powder, and pepper. Dredge meat tips in the flour mixture.

  • Heat olive oil in large skillet over medium-high heat, then brown tips for a couple of minutes (you aren't cooking them all the way through, just browning the edges). Place beef tips in slow cooker.

  • Dump onions and mushrooms on top of meat in slow cooker.

  • Mix broth, Worcestershire, ketchup, red wine vinegar, water in a bowl. Pour on top of meat in slow cooker.

  • Sprinkle Italian seasoning on top of everything and cook on low for 7-8 hours.

  • After meat is finished cooking, mix cornstarch together with water in a separate bowl. Using a strainer, remove beef tips from slow cooker and place in a separate bowl. Pour cornstarch mixture into remaining liquid in the crock pot and mix well. Add the beef tips back into the slow cooker and cook on high for about 10 minutes or until the liquid starts to thicken and turns into a gravy.

  • Serve over hot mashed potatoes.


*You can purchase a sirloin roast and cut it into 1-2″ pieces if you store does not carry the tips already. You can also substitute beef stew cubes, which you can find in in the meat department of most grocery stores.

If you are short on time, you can skip the 3rd step where you brown the meat in a skillet before adding it to the slow cooker. Browning the meat will help to lock in the moisture, giving you extra tender and juicy meat, but it will still taste great even if you don’t brown it.

  1. Sarah @ Seriously Lovely says:

    Wow, this sounds really delicious!

  2. heidi says:

    Hi there! This sounds like something my husband would love! Help me out, though- what are sirloin roast tips? I have never seen that in any of the meat sections of grocery stores in my area. Since we don't seem to have that, any suggestions on a substitution?Thanks!

  3. Melanie says:

    This sounds so easy and delicious. My boys love eating beef, so this sort of thing goes over really well in our house. And what could be easier than cooking it up in the crock pot?!?

  4. Camille (SixSistersStuff) says:

    Heidi- so sorry about that! You can actually just buy a sirloin roast and cut it into 1-2" pieces and it will work perfectly. :) Another thing that you can do is buy beef stew cubes (they usually have them all cut into pieces for beef stew in the meat section of the grocery store) and it will work!

  5. Patti says:

    I will be taking a meal in to my neighbor's family on Sunday and thought this would be delicious, but they are a gluten free family. Do you think substituting GF flour would be possible? Thanks!

  6. Cyd says:

    It should be fine. The recipe only calls for 1/2 cup.

  7. Tiffany says:

    Is it really 2665 calories per serving?!?!? It looks sooo good. Please tell me this was a typo....

  8. Cyd says:

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We sent it on to our technical support to check it out.

  9. Amanda says:

    Hi, I'm in the process of making this right now for supper tonight, can't wait to see if it tastes as good as it looks.

  10. Lesta Sims says:

    Made this and it is great! I cheated though...I had cube steak thawed out and had to use it, so I cut it into 1" pieces and used it. Hubby loved it! If it was that good using cube steak, I can only imagine how good it is with roast tips! ;) This recipe is a keeper! But then again, what recipe on this site isn't!? Thanks again!

  11. JACK ALWARD says:

    Thanks very much that was a 10 star meal. and very east to follow recipe . I will be back soon . Again thanks.

  12. Laurie says:

    What size whole sirloin roast would you recommend using. And what kind of mushrooms work the best in this?

  13. Cyd says:

    You need 3 to 4 pounds of sirloin tips, so if using a roast you would want it to be about that same weight. Any sliced mushrooms in the produce section will work great.

  14. Yvette says:

    I need to make this for a crowed of 20 ppl how would measurements change? Or just double everything? I know beef broth what is condensed beef broth I never seen that?

  15. Cyd says:

    Just double everything for feeding a larger crowd. You may need to use more than one slow cooker if it's more than 2/3 full after doubling. Campbell's makes a condensed beef broth. But here is how you can substitute regular beef broth - About Condensed beef brothBeef broth which has been reduced down so it is stronger than regular strength broth. Campbell's makes condensed chicken and beef broth and it can be found in the soup isle of most grocery stores. Substitute for Condensed beef brothFor 1 cup of condensed broth, simmer 1 1/2 cups regular strength broth and reduce to 1 cup.So you would need to adjust accordingly to your measurements if you are doubling the recipe.

  16. Clara says:

    I made this recipe today, I follow all the steps and did a reduction in the beef both since my store don't carry it, I loved the taste, but it was very soggy, the last step when I'm supposed to add the corn starch, the meet had no water or juice to drain it was dry! What did I do wrong?

  17. Cyd says:

    Hi Clara, not sure what you could have done wrong. There should be plenty of liquid with the whole can of beef broth added along with other liquids.

  18. Krystle says:

    I'm planning on making this for my family tomorrow. We have early church and was wondering of it would work to dip the meat In flour and brown it the night before and then place everything else in the crock pot in the morning?

  19. Cyd says:

    That should work just fine.

  20. marie says:

    U put a recipe on fb for pull apart pumpkin breakfast bread but recipe did not show up is there anyway u can repost recipe please??

  21. Paula says:

    Hi I don't like using a crock pot can I cook this in the oven or on stove top?

  22. Cyd says:

    Hi Paula, you should be fine cooking this in the oven. You'll want a nice pot with a lid.

  23. Cyd says:

    Here is the link on our website -

  24. Cyd says:

    Any cuts of beef will work well. We often buy the stew meat and after cooking all day in the slow cooker, it is super moist.

  25. Connie says:

    What about the red wine vinegar? What could I substitute for it?

  26. Cyd says:

    Hi Connie, I did some searching and reading on the internet. Where this recipe only calls for 2 Tablespoons of Red Wine Vinegar you should be fine substituting. Here is what I found for you..... Substituting vinegar does not alter the taste of the dish substantially. However, this is true only if the recipe demands a little use of vinegar. Balsamic vinegar, white wine vinegar, apple cider vinegar, rice vinegar can all be substituted for red wine vinegar. Read more at Buzzle:

  27. Pat says:

    My husband isn't crazy about onions. Any ideas for what else to add? And can I make it without the last step with the cornstarch? Thanks!

  28. Cyd says:

    You could totally leave out the onions if you don't like them. You could also add in an envelope of onion soup mix for flavor. The cornstarch and water at the end thickens up the liquid to make a gravy. You could skip that last step if you don't want your liquid to be thick.

  29. Kat says:

    Can you cook on high to speed up cook time? If so how many hours?

  30. Kim says:

    Have you eever done this without browning the meat first?

  31. Cyd says:

    We often make this without browning the beef tips first. They cook all day in the slow cooker, so they will be cooked through.

  32. Alex says:

    Can I make without the mushrooms? Or used something in its place... my boys don’t like mushrooms. Thanks!

  33. Cyd says:

    You can just leave the mushrooms out all together if the family doesn't like them.

  34. lori says:

    My cooking skills are average at best, however I am capable of making good meals. Is this dish have a good chance of turning out good for the average cook?

  35. Cyd says:

    Hi Lori. I made this last Sunday for dinner. It really is so easy to make and the slow cooker basically does all the work. I didn't even do step #3 in the instructions. I put the floured meat tips directly into the slow cooker. (So I didn't use any olive oil since I didn't brown the tips.) Let it cook all day on low and it was amazing. You should be fine making this recipe! Let us know if you have any other questions.

  36. Betty says:

    Next time I am leaving out the vinegar. It just doesn't taste right in a dish like this. It was just okay.

  37. Cyd says:

    Hi Betty. You could easily leave out the vinegar. Have a great week.

  38. sandra workman says:

    Could I prep this and put it all together as a freezer meal?

  39. Momma Cyd says:

    Yes, this recipe would work as a freezer meal.

  40. Lineti says:

  41. Sue from MA says:

    We loved this recipe in the instant pot. It was delicious!!

    Slow Cooker Beef Sirloin Tips and Gravy Recipe (16)

  42. M L says:

    There is no instruction for when to add the condensed broth. I imagine it is with the ketchup mix.

  43. MelissaP says:

    You mentioned Instapot directions in the video. Would you mind sharing where they are? I’m assuming everything the same except instead of slow cooking, pressure cook a certain timeframe? Or slow cook partial and finish off pressure cooking?

  44. Momma Cyd says:

    Scroll all the way down to the instructions and ingredients and it's in step #5.

  45. Sharon Harrington says:

    The recipe never mentions when to add the condensed beef broth.

  46. Momma Cyd says:

    In step #5 in the recipe card it says to add the broth. Hope this helps.

  47. Laurie P says:

    Hi! I am planning to make this tomorrow!!I got pre sliced angus sirloin tip this type of meat good for this recipe?Thank you!Laurie

  48. Laurie P says:

    Update: I made this with the sirloin tip cut of meat and it was absolutely delicious - in case anyone else is wondering!!Laurie

  49. Momma Cyd says:

    So sorry I am a little late to the game! Yes it should work great, and you already let us know that it turned out amazing!!!

  50. Deb Lawrence says:

    Could I prepare everything (but the noodles of course) and freeze it to cook it in the crock pot 5 days later? We’re going on vacation and would like the mess at home before we go.

  51. Momma Cyd says:

    Yes, this makes a great freezer meal.

  52. Chris H says:

    Can you cook on high to speed up cook time? If so how many hours?

  53. Momma Cyd says:

    Low and slow is always best for moist and tender meat. But if you need to do in on high temp, it would take about 3-4 hours.

  54. Vinny says:

    I don't see the step that adds the beef broth. When is it added?

  55. Momma Cyd says:

    Scroll down to the recipe card and it's in step #5.

  56. Karen says:

    Hi, how long would you cook this if using an instant pot? Believe I heard you say a half hour on your Facebook video?

  57. Lori N says:

    Just put this in the crockpot for dinner but realized too late that I used regular beef broth instead of condensed. Oh well. I’ll remember that for next time. Hoping it will be good.

  58. Melissa says:

    If I were going to bake this in the oven (with stew meat), how long should I bake it, and at what temperature?

  59. Momma Cyd says:

    The temperature of the slow cooker depends on the model. The slow cooker has a temperature of 190 - 200 degrees F. while on the low setting.The temperature ranging between 200-205 degrees Fahrenheit is the optimum cooking temperature on your slow cooker. So your oven would need to be at that temp and follow the instructions as directed in the recipe. You would want to use a good pan too.

  60. Momof5 says:

    My family devoured this. This was honestly the best tasting "pot roast" recipe I've tried.

    Slow Cooker Beef Sirloin Tips and Gravy Recipe (17)

  61. Momma Cyd says:

    Yay! So glad to hear that the family liked the Beef Tips and Gravy!

  62. Stephanie says:

    Hi. Can’t wait to try this recipe on my new instant pot. Can I skip the browning for the IP? Or will it taste better if I brown the meet? Other than that I follow the same steps as the recipe above? What’s a substitue for seasoned salt? Oh and for 1.5 pounds of meat everything else should be divided in 2 but the time? Thank you

  63. Momma Cyd says:

    We have the recipe for the instant pot -
