Crockpot Beef Tips Recipe

 

 Beef tips are a richly-flavored entree that goes perfectly with mashed potatoes, rice or buttered noodles. When made with sirloin steak, they are called “sirloin tips.” Duh! However, I much prefer them made with chuck roast rather than sirloin, and here’s why. Sirloin is a lean cut of meat. It […]

 Spaghetti sauce (or tomato gravy to my Italian friends) is a staple in most households. Rather than watching over the pot for a long, slow-cooked version on the stove, it’s just as easy to toss it all in the crockpot. You won’t need to worry about stirring or boilovers, and […]

Easy Cowboy Chili Recipe

 

 Chili purists will argue that adding beans is a definite no-no, and I actually prefer mine sans beans. However, adding beans not only helps stretch the meat, it also adds vegetable protein and fiber to the dish. Although I’ve used kidney and pinto beans here, feel free to use your […]

Barley Beef Stew Recipe

 

 This beef stew recipe is a throwback to my youth. I remember falling in love with barley as a kid. I used to pick pick those chewy little nuggets out of my canned beef vegetable soup and savor each one individually. Barley was not a popular grain in my area […]
