Very tasty! I used a beef tenderloin tip which was left over and not quite thick enough for filet steaks from a whole tenderloin. I also did not use the crockpot. I browned the meat in a dutch oven then simmered the remaining ingredients for about 25 minutes. ( Cover off to allow gravy to thicken). I sprinkled the three Tbsp of flour on top of the meat as it simmered , then stirred it in, to promote gravy thickening. Served it over beef flavored rice pilaf which was topped with roasted sliced almonds. Very special meal!
My family really enjoyed this dish, however I was a little disappointed with it. I thought it could use a little more flavor and I also thought it was too starchy. I think it has a lot of potential though! It was very thick so next time I think I will add a little more beef broth and a little less flour. This time, I dumped all the extra flour mixture in with the beef tips (the flour that didnt't stick to the meat) so next time, I think I may leave that out. Give it a shot, though! Like I said, my family really liked it!
WOW! My Mother-in-law gave us a gift of Omaha steaks and included were some sirlion tips. I went looking for a "good" recipe that did not include alot of processed soups or dry soup or gravy mixes. I wanted flavor - not salt. This was it. The only thing in there was a can of condensed soup - the rest was relatively healthy, good stuff. We loved this. And the aroma while it was cooking! YUM-O! I also went ahead and threw the wine in with all of the other liquid ingredients. I just saved out few tablespoons of the liquid mix to mix with the flour in the end. I should also mention that I cut the amount of beef in half. We only used 2 pounds and kept the sauce ingredients the same. Came out perfect! We served this over brown rice and had a nice green salad with it. Husband gave me the thumbs up! Thanks for posting. This is definitely a keeper.
