Slow-cooked Beef Tips

Posted on March 19th, 2014 in Food, Stories





After you’ve had a house full of boys all weekend and your in-laws announce their arrival in two days and their delighted anticipation as to a nice hot meal after a day on the road, there is only one solution for a little duckie who has been cooking and cleaning for five days straight on top of homework and two papers.


The slow cooker.


The best thing about beef tips and rice in the slow cooker as they fall apart the second your fork touches them and have a thick gravy perfect for blanketing rice or noodles.  All you have to do is chop up the meat, toss it in and let it simmer.   Considering I’ll be in class when the in-laws arrive, they get dinner before 10 p.m. and I don’t really have to cook.




Stay tuned, Invisible Friends!  A new fun tale on Friday!

    Sounds wonderful. I always toyed with the idea of buying a slow cooker, but have never actually bought one yet. I am even more tempted now.

    I love slow cooked any meat. Slow cooked makes all the difference, but I simply run out of patience to do it enough :(

    Really should it back to doing it more often, especially with beef.
