Classic comfort food!
I adapted the recipe for the crockpot by reducing the water to 1 1/2 cups and cooking on low approx 6 hrs. I added 1 clove of minced garlic and used 2 T cornstarch/ 3T water to make the gravy the last 30 minutes then added 1/2 t Kitchen Bouquet for color. Served over rice with a green salad & peas. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

I did not like this as stated, all I tasted was the ketchup in the gravy. Also I suspected I would not need 3 cups water so I only used 2 and that was perfect. Next time I am going to try using beef stock in place of all the water and a little tomato paste in place of the ketchup.

This was really good, old-fashioned comfort food. I added some sliced mushrooms with the onions, and served this over mashed poatoes. The meat turned out very tender.

Love recipes that just kind of sit there and does it's thing with very few ingredients. My husband loved the gravy. Served over gnocchi. :)

Excellent flavor, the whole family enjoyed it. I did add mushrooms with the onions. I served it over egg noodles and my only complaint is that the sauce was not thick enough for our liking. I think it would be a great consistency over mashed potatoes, but it just didn't stick to the noodles. I will double the cornstarch next time - but there will definitely be a next time!

This came out great! I've never made beef tips before. I was nervous about the amount of Worcestershire sauce because it smelled strong at first. I intended to add garlic but I forgot. I did add a few shakes of Italian seasoning. My family enjoyed the flavor of this. I served it with egg noodles. Easy, good recipe!

Simple Goodness!
My husband was yearning for Beef Tips over noodles, so I chose this recipe. He yummied through the entire meal, as did I. It was very tasty and the meat so tender. Simple ingredients, easy preparation, and the final product satisfied our hunger for great, home-cooked comfort food.
As a leftover, we combined the noodles and beef tips for a casserole dinner with salad the following night. It's a truly EASY recipe with a comforting yummy taste. Next time, I'll try it in the crock pot for an all day slow cooked method.

This was a lovely dinner on a chilly night. I added some garlic and a dash of red wine near the end of the cooking time. Thx for sharing your Mom's recipe.
