Saucy Beef Tips in Crock Pot

Saucy Beef Tips and Sticky Rice:                          

I used our home raised beef - sirloin.  Cut your meat into chunks for browning.

I made a mixture of flour, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper.  Dust the chunks of meat in the flour mixture.  Fry the meat.  I used both oil and butter.

You only want to brown the meat - not cook it.  Don't toss out the extra flour - once meat is removed, use that for the rue.  Just dump the extra flour mixture and brown it up a bit. 

Once the flour is browned, I added a jar of my home canned tomatoes.  Stir up the bottom of the pan to get all the drippings.  I also added 2 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce and 2 Tbs. beef base along with 2 Cups of water.  This will depend on how much juice is in your tomatoes.  Cut up a sweet union and put in crock pot.  Dump all of the meat and gravy in the crock pot and cook on low for 8 hrs. or medium/high for 4 hrs.  Or, until the meat is done - it will be very tender. 

Serve over rice, noodles or mashed potatoes. 

Blessings from Wisconsin.

I'm drooling here. I'd even eat that for breakfast over rice! You cook like I do, everything out of the home processed pantry and freezer. Good eats and a glory-weekend to you.
Oh, and I love, Love, LOVE your Suffolk. My Dad used to raise them way back when My kids were babes. Loved seeing your bright-eyed ewe or is it a ram.
