The One They Call The Vision That Bears The Gift

This week’s Tasty Tuesday post features a simple dish that’s packed with flavor.  The sauce is rich and creamy, and the beef was so tender it just fell apart in our mouths.  It’s total comfort food.  

I found the recipe on Pinterest while searching for ways to use the beef tips Eric and I recently purchased at Costco.  I really wanted something that didn’t use cream of mushroom soup (I hate mushrooms and find the cream of mushroom soup a little too salty at times), so this was perfect.  It does still use cream of chicken soup, but it wasn’t overwhelmingly salty.

I can’t take credit for this one, though.  I sent Eric the recipe, and he took care of the rest!


It was difficult to get a good picture just because it doesn’t look overly appetizing.  Trust me when I say it tastes awesome, though!  Personal photo.

Crock Pot Beef Tips and Noodles

Recipe taken from

Adapted very slightly by Eric!

Ingredient List:

  • 2 lbs beef tips
  • 1 10.5 oz. can 98% fat free cream of chicken soup
  • 1 8 oz. container sour cream 
  • 1 packet Lipton onion soup mix
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 package egg noodles


1.) Place beef tips in crock pot.  

2.) In a separate bowl, mix soup, sour cream, and onion soup mix together.  

3.) Pour mixture over beef tips.

4.) Cook on low for around 2 hours.  Add garlic salt and black pepper and stir to coat evenly.

5.) Cook on low for an additional 4 to 6 hours.  (Total cook time should be 6-8 hours.)

6.) Near the end of cook time, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.  Cook egg noodles according to package directions.

7.) Enjoy!  Eric paired this meal with some peas, but I’m sure it would taste great with most vegetables.
