Crockpot Tuesday – Beef Sirloin Tip with Mushrooms

Today’s Crockpot Tuesday recipe is an adaption of the Beef Tips recipe at CDKitchen.  Instead of using Beef Sirloin tips, I used a roast that I had bought for Buy One Get One Free.  I was also able to use some of the Tomato Paste and Worcestershire Sauce that I had gotten for Free.  Here’s what you’ll need to make my version of Beef Sirloin Tips

1 1/2 pounds Sirloin Tip Roast (mine was frozen)
1/2 cup flour
1/8 Teaspoon Pepper
1/2 Medium onion
1 package mushrooms – sliced
1 Beef Bouillon Cube
2 heaping teaspoons tomato paste
1 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
1/4 cup water

The first thing I did was to mix the 1/2 cup flour and 1/8 teaspoon pepper.  I just used my measuring cup.

Then I placed my frozen Sirloin Tip Roast in the crockpot and poured the flour over it.  I turned it over several times so each side was coated.

The next step is to slice the onions and mushrooms and place them on top of the roast.

In another measuring cup, I measured out 1/4 cup of water and added the tomato paste and Worcestershire sauce.  I stirred it together until the tomato paste was nearly dissolved.

I poured the mixture over the roast, mushrooms and onions.  Then I added the Beef Bouillon cube. 

I put the lid on the crockpot and turned it on high.  The online recipe called for it to cook 10 to 12 hours on low, but I didn’t have that amount of time since I didn’t start my meal until 1 PM.  I figured I had 5 1/2 hours until dinner so I turned it on high.  5 hours on high equals about 10 hours on low. plus I needed the other 1/2 hour on high to defrost my meat since like most Crockpot Tuesday recipes, my meat was frozen.

However, when I checked it about 4 hours in, I noticed the meat was about done.  I then turned it to low.  So I cooked it for  4 hours on high and 1 1/2 on low.

This is what my meat looked like after the 5 1/2 hours of cooking time.  I took it out so I could thicken up the sauce.  I simply poured some cornstarch mixed with water into my crockpot.  Turned the crockpot back on high and let it cook for about another 20 – 30 minutes.  During this time, I made the noodles and frozen vegetables to serve with it.  I also cut the meat into bite size pieces.

Here is the finished dish.  When the sauce was thickened, I added the meat back into the crockpot to rewarm it and then served it up.

This meal that my husband said was delicious was like most of the Crockpot Tuesday meals also very frugal.  The total cost of the meal that fed six was $5.77 or less then $1 per person.
