No Peek Beef Tips & Gravy

If you're looking for an easy beef tips and gravy recipe, look no further! ... This No Peek Beef Tips recipe is tender, delicious and makes it's own Gravy! 
Last week was back to school week at our house, so my kiddo's as well as I are trying to adjust from summer to school mode again. Getting everyone up early has been the biggest challenge!! No more sleeping in and nobody gets that. My oldest is starting high school, my youngest is starting kindergarten and my daughter will be in the third grade.

The hardest part has been trying to get my youngest son going in the morning...... Bless his heart he still doesn't understand that he has to go to school and that it isn't a choice! To add fuel to the fire, I started babysitting a 5 month old baby girl, so its been an adjustment for all of us. I have to admit it that it sure has been nice having a baby in the house again.  

I've definitely been pressed for time, but we will get it all figured out. It's only the first week right? Getting back into a dinner routine and planning a menu has been my biggest challenge. So to kick off the first week of back-to-school, I am sharing a quick and easy meal that my family loves. 

If you're looking for an easy beef tips and gravy recipe, look no further! This No Peek Beef Tip recipe is super simple and quite delicious. The meat turns out so tender every time plus, it makes its own gravy so, it doesn't get any better than that. Serve with rice, mashed potatoes or pasta. This recipe is prepared in one pan, so clean up is a snap!   

I like to use chuck roast or chuck eye, but you could also us stew meat. Sirloin steak can tend to be dry so I usually don't use it. This recipes cooks low and slow at 300 degrees for 3 hours. After all of the ingredients are added to the baking dish tightly cover the pan with aluminum foil and ...... DON'T PEEK, because all the steam will escape, and you need that to help keep the meat nice and tender. 

This recipe is perfect if you have guests for dinner, because you don't have to spend a ton of time in the kitchen. Once your guests walk through the door they will be overcome with the aroma of these delicious beef tips baking in the oven. Anytime I make this meal everyone always asks for the recipe. :) Let's get started on the step-by-step recipe. 

To start, add the cubed meat to a 9 x 13 inch pan. In a separate bowl add dry onion soup mix, cream soup, dry gravy mix and 1 1/2 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 . Remember no peeking. 

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.

Yum!! The meat turns out very tender and the gravy is the perfect consistency.

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.

Is there anything I can substitute the canned soup with I don't have any.

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!
Kay said…
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!
Unknown said…
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.

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 has been on one of my Pinterest boards for a loooong time and I finally just made it tonight. What a hit!! Husband and kids were suitable impressed. Made just as posted and was not too salty as others have found it. Thanks!!

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!
Unknown 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 :)

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.

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!
Unknown 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

wbeck said…
Can this be made in the Instant Pot? I have made it for several years in the crockpot, but am looking to try it out in my Instant Pot. I would love cooking directions to do so!

We had this wonderful recipe for the first time for dinner tonight. We shared it with our daughter and son-in-law. All four of us LOVED it!
I followed your recipe and it was delicious. It is so nice to find a recipe that is so easy and tastes so good when you eat it. I will be trying many more of your recipes. Thank you!

If I double this can I still use a 9 x 13 will take about 4 lbs. of meat to feed the crew I have coming!
Unknown said…
I've used cream of chicken soup because that's all I had and it turned out fantastic.
Tina Butler said…
Yes the mushrooms are drained if using canned. The recipe calls for fresh, but canned should be fine.
Roxanne Justiz said…
I love that I can make this in a crock pot. Thank you for the simple to follow instructions. I appreciate the pictures as a new cook. These things make my life much easier, lol! I look forward to trying this recipe as I love beef tips. I decided to try cooking at home since eating out is so expensive now. Your recipes are a blessing! Thanks for sharing. Shalom

I found your No Peek Beef Tips recipe a couple weeks ago. I made it for me & my husband & we loved it so I made it at my daughter's house & it was a hit there as well. But tonight I altered it & it was over the moon! I substituted the stew beef with cube steaks. It was so tender that the meat fell apart with a fork and melted in your mouth. I served it with egg noodles & French style green beans. Just awesome!! Thanks for a great recipe!!
Tina Butler said…
I need to try it with Cube Steak, I never know how to cook it so thank you for the tip. I am glad you liked the recipe.
