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.
