No Peek Beef Tips {Amazingly Tender}

It's been a crazy at our house this past week. It was the first week of school, so were all kind of adjusting to everything again. Getting everyone up early!! No more sleeping in and no one understands that. I have one starting High School one starting Kindergarten and my daughter who is in the middle starts third grade.

The hardest adjustment is getting my youngest one going he still really doesn't get the fact that he has to go to school, he still thinks its a choice LOL. Plus I started watching a 6 month old so its been a big adjustment for everyone. It is nice to have a baby in the house again. Time has been pressed this week, but we will get it all figured out. It's only the first week right? I think all in all it went really well.

I wanted to make a something quick and simple for dinner. My No Peek Beef Tips was the perfect meal. I could just toss everything together and the oven will do the rest. This recipe really is easy and quite tasty. 
The meat turns out so tender every time plus, it makes its own gravy it doesn't get any better than that. I like to serve a nice colorful vegetable and fresh bread or rolls along side. Clean up is a snap since it uses just one pan. I used a chuck roast but it really is versatile on your meat choice.

You can use stew meat, chuck eye or a cheaper cut. It cooks slowly at 300 degrees for 3 hours so the meat will get really tender so a cheaper cut is fine. I hope you enjoy the beef tips as much as I do it's one of my favorite meals. This is the perfect if you have guests for dinner that way you don't have to spend the whole time in the kitchen preparing the meal. Lets get started. The full recipe is at the bottom of this post.

Add cubed meat to a 9 x 13 inch pan. In a separate bowl add dry onion soup mix, Cream of mushroom soup, dry gravy mix and 1 cup water. Using a whisk mix until blended.

Pour over the meat add mushrooms and stir to coat. (I did not use mushrooms my DH asked me not to) darn it mushrooms are the best part. Stir to coat all the meat. Cover with foil tightly and bake at 300 degrees for 2 1/2 - 3 Hours do not remove foil until done. 

This is where it earned it's name NO PEEK! Be very careful when removing the foil the steam is very hot and will escape fast. Let cool a bit and serve over rice or noodles.

Very Yummo!!! The meat turns out very tender and the gravy is the perfect consistency. I served mine with fresh french bread and broccoli with cheese sauce.

I made this last week only I used my crockpot. they turned out really good, I cooked them on high for 3 of hours and then turned them down to low for about 1 just until the rice was cooked, really really yummy. I added the water instead of the soda too. My hubby is a very picky eater and he love this recipe thank you for posting.

Threw everything in the crock pot before I left for work this morning and came home to the house smelling amazing! I doubled the recipe and it was SO, SO, SO good! Will definitely be making this again, two thumbs up!

Definitely a bit tardy to the party, but I found this recipe on Pinterest and made it last night. Delish! Not a bit of leftovers to be had. Will definitely be keeping this one in my arsenal!

Made this tonight and it is definitely a keeper. The meat was tender, lot of flavor. Served it over rice and added extra can of mushrooms. One question is there a way to cut down the salty taste? will make again for sure.

Linda said... #

My family LOVES this recipe, and I have shared it with others many times! My daughter just had oral surgery yesterday - today is the first day that she is permitted to eat "real" food. She actually asked for this for dinner tonight! Thanks for sharing this recipe.

I found this recipe on Pinterest and had to tell you it was extremely good and so easy to pop in the oven Sunday morning. I was afraid it would be salty but it wasn't, it is so beefy and rich. I didn't add the soft drink (can't remember what it kind). Served it over mashed potatoes. Tastes like you slaved. Make extra - it won't last.

This is very yummy indeed and has been one of our favorites for a year or so. I add sliced yellow onions, green bell peppers and fresh mushrooms and it is extra tasty! Thanks for sharing!! Oh we love it with a baked potato!

Tracey Leland said... #

I have made this twice and my family love it.. I gave this recipe to my daughter ( who does not cook) She made it for her husband yesterday for valentines day. She couldn't believe how easy it was. Her husband absolutely loved it. He told her to make it all the time. I may just make a cook out of her yet, with your help! Thank you!!

Oh my gosh! Needed an alternate recipe for my stew meat today, since I forgot to start a stew in the slow cooker this morning. Found this on Pinterest, but didn't have the dry onion soup or brown gravy mix on hand. I substituted a packet of au jus mix and a packet of ranch dip mix for those two ingredients and it turned out DELICIOUS! Thumbs-up from the whole family and my husband had a huge helping of seconds, which is the sign of true kitchen success for me :)
Noticed that some of the commenters found it to be salty, but that was not the case with these substitutions. Next time I plan to use the ingredients that were called for, but I have a feeling we will make our version again too. Soooo yummy. Meat and gravy were perfect with egg noodles.
Thank you for the recipe :)

Thanks for this awesome recipe. It is so easy and delicious. I've made it several times. I always double everything for my big family. Everyone loves it! Also it makes the house smell fantastic!!! WINNER

I did a google search for beef tips and your website came up!! I wanted to find a recipe that was quick and easy and delish. The coolest thing about your No Peek beef tips is that all of the ingredients are ones that I always have laying around in my pantry. So I saved myself a trip to the super market!! Anyway the beef tips are bubbling in the oven now, cant wait to taste them. Thank you for your easy no fuss recipe!

Tracy said... #

I have made this recipe, about 5 times now and every time it gets better and better. I've had tried a few times to tweak it where it wasn't so salty. I have also turned your recipe into a stew using the same ingredients, plus a few veggies in a crock pot and it was fantastic. my son and I love this dish.

Diana said... #

Hi! I just want to let you know this is one of my family's favorites! I'm going to surf around your site and see what else I can find :) Hope you are doing well.

Angel S said... #

How about if I use 4 lbs of meat? How long in the oven?? Please help it's in the oven now. I doubled the recipe

Has anyone tried it with venison? Does it cook the same?

Jessica said... #

Those concerned about it being too salty - I found that too, then I started purchasing everything (soup/gravy) as the low sodium versions, and that was the trick! One of our favourites, I always have to double it!

Latisha Sanders said... #

My whole family loves these beef tips and gravy. I always double the recipe for extra gravy and put it over rice with cornbread, makes great leftovers too. My mother-in-law even complimented me on this. Can't beat that.Also makes the house smell delicious. WINNER!!! Thanks
