Recipe: Beef Tips in Crockpot

If you’ve read the last several blog posts, you’ll know that DH and I are both struggling mightily to stay on that low carb bandwagon.  We usually do pretty good about 4 days a week, and not quite as good the other 3.  Lunches typically remain good with salads and breakfasts are as good as they’re going to get (I just can’t give up my Fiber One bar), so it is the dinners that are really hurting.  We’ve been turning to fast food or ordering in or eating out more than we should.  So, finding quick, easy low carb dinners is a key for us.

This meal is pretty good – we ended up eating it over a serving of brown rice, which is probably more appropriate for people in Phase 2 of the South Beach Diet.  You could certainly just eat the beef on its own if you were on Phase 1.

Original recipe can be found here – the recipe below is simply for 4 servings instead of 8.

Ingredients

1 lb. lean stew meat (we used meat for stir fry)
1 envelope Lipton onion soup mix
1 (10.5 oz.) can of 98% fat free cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup red wine (or beef broth)
1 (8 oz.) can sliced mushrooms, drained

Directions

Mix all ingredients in crockpot and cook on low 6-8 hours.  Serve over brown rice or noodles if desired.

Ease: Perfect for any night of the week

Whole-Family Appeal: 2.75 of 3 thumbs up (DS didn’t like the sliced mushrooms.  I’m not a huge fan of them either, but the sauce was so stinking good that I was able to eat most of them!)

Wouldeatitagain Factor: Yes!  We had it over brown rice, but we might just try on its own sometime, maybe with a side of green beans.
