Beef Up Dinner With These Tips

BailiesAs the mother of an active toddler and the wife of a Latham regional sales manager, Rebecca Bailie enjoys making home-cooked meals that only taste like she spent all day in the kitchen.  Easy-to-make, wholesome meals that make feeding large groups easy are standards for her.

That’s why she fixed this recipe for Beef Tips and Noodles when the couple celebrated their son’s first birthday last month.  Rebecca was able to easily feed about 15 extended family members with plenty of time left to make the most important part of the meal – the birthday cake!

Rebecca says this recipe has become one of her family’s favorites.  It’s perfect for entertaining large groups or for a small family dinner at home.  She also likes the flexibility it offers because it can be made on the stove if you decide to make it last minute, or it can be placed in a crock pot in the morning and be ready for supper that night.

The original recipe Beef Tips and Noodles was found on, but Rebecca made some changes to fit her family’s tastes.  Rebecca’s version is listed below, click here for the original recipe.

Beef Tips and Noodles



1-2 lbs of beef stew meat (cubed)
1 pkg. dry onion soup mix
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 pint fresh mushrooms (sliced)
1 can beef broth
1 package egg noodles (cooked according to package directions)



Brown meat in a frying pan. Drain excess grease from meat, and then add onion soup mix, mushroom soup, mushrooms & beef broth. If you’re making it in the crock pot, put all ingredients in crock pot (after browning the meat) and cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours. If making it on the stove, combine all the ingredients. Make sure meat is cooked through, and simmer for whatever time allows. Serve over egg noodles, potatoes or rice.


Yields 6-8 servings
