I love it
Delish! If I may, Stew Meat is third class mystery meat. At the least, a roast or tenderloin cut up adds heaps and layers of flavor and you don’t get that organ meat bite.
This was amazing! so simple. My family loved it. Was asked to make again.
I sauteed the mushrooms and onions in the pan after the beef. Than deglazed the pan with 1 cup red wine and reduced the beef broth to 2 cups. Added alot of flavor
This recipe turned out fantastic! I made this exactly as written and I would not change a thing! The seasoning was spot on. I served it over noodles with green beans, carrots and homemade biscuits! So good! Everyone loved it! ♥️😋👍🏼

How do you make it thicker 3 Tablespoons didn’t do it ?
HMM! It may depend where you live but adding another tablespoon may help or letting it sit longer.
Could you freeze the leftovers? Not sure because of the mushrooms.
Yes, this is a great freezer meal.
Very tasty recipe, I didn’t have the Worcestershire sauce so I left it out, came out excellent!
I just came across your recipe & it looks very similar to the one I just “created”, with a few exceptions. I threw in cream of mushroom soup, (love the flavor, can’t tolerate the texture), onions,
onion soup mix, onion gravy, garlic, thyme, salt, pepper, tomato paste, white wine (didn’t have red), Worcester sauce & plum jam -(found it in the pantry and thought, “Why not?”, lol). Wish I had found your site BEFORE I began cooking it! Have bookmarked & saved! Thanks so much for sharing your recipes! ??
Recipe was very bland. I added extra garlic, herbs de province, pepper ,salt, etc but still was bland. Will add hearty burgandy wine, carrots and pearl onions next time I make it.
The wine certainly can’t hurt.
I’m a close follower of the Justin Wilson philosophy that one should “taste” the wine every few minutes to insure it remains of finest quality during the cooking process.
I recommend having a back up bottle on hand, in case of an emergency.
I agree, you most definitely need the back-up bottle for emergency!!
I’ve cut up onions red ( half of a left over one I used for salsa tonight) and yellow – garlic- carrots – celery- mushrooms – or…first thing In the morning ..heading to my favorite butcher …to buy . A chuck blade steak or two …I can cut it up in bigger chunks and the fat in the steak makes it juicy after cooking for hours….. I’ll post tomorrow night..see what my hubby and do think ..thank you
My family are not mushroom eaters at all. What can be a substitute for them in any dish.
You can just leave them out for this recipe. If you would like to substitute you can try carrots, onions or bell peppers but it will be a little more crunchy instead of a tender texture.
This was excellent. I didn’t add the mushrooms.
If don’t have dry onion soup can use other replace
Stir together onion flakes, beef bouillon granules, onion powder, parsley flakes, celery seed, paprika, and black pepper in a bowl.
Is there another cut of beef you could recommend? My husband has a “thing” about stewing beef.
No problem. I totally understand. You can use any type of steak that he prefers. Simply cut into chunks.
Whether it’s this recipe, beef stew, chili, stroganoff or other, I tend to cube round steak.
We are the same way about stew met. I use either a Chuck roast or sirloin steak cut up.
I used tenderloin cut into pieces, delicious!
The instructions don’t include the Worcestershire sauce; don’t forget to add it to the crockpot.
Could this be made in the Instant Pot? Sounds yummy!
I made ours in our instapot, turned out great, a little more watery than I expected. Maybe more cornstarch?
How long did you cook it?
11 min pressure? I worry that’s to long for the mushrooms…
I browned the meat, added the broth, worcechestershire, and onion powder, pressure cookies for 35 mins. Then added the mushrooms and sautéed for 5 mins. Then added cornstarch. It was perfect!
Just a quick question….what kind of mushrooms are used in this recipe??
I use raw mushrooms and cut them up. You can use a can of mushrooms but their flavoring and texture is a lot different and usually smaller.
What kind of fresh or raw mushrooms?? White or portabellas??
They look to be your standard button mushrooms in the picture, but any mushroom will do for a recipe as simple as beef tips.
I can only assume that the worcheshire sauce goes in with the other ingredients. I added it then…making it tonight so in about 30 minutes I will see if I get a thumbs up from my kiddo or not to make again…
Yes she forgot that ingredient in her instructions. Not a big deal.
Great recipe. I did leave out the dry onion soup – just way to much sodium for me. But I added more diced onions and 1 tablespoon Mrs. Dash Original Seasoning.. With that change it was fantastic.
