beef tips and nOOdles

AuthorHeather WallaceCategoryDifficultyBeginner

The ultimate comfort food for me is my grandmother's beef tips and noodles.

Try out my updated version of her recipe that is slow cooked for 8 hours and is like wrapping yourself in a warm blanket.

Searing the beef and slow cooking it for several hours in a red wine and beef broth gives a beautiful depth of flavor that will make you go back for a second bowl.

I use my Fagor multi cooker for this recipe but you can alter to use in an Instant Pot, or any slow cooker. If your slow cooker doesn't have a browning or simmer function you can sear the roast in a skillet before adding to your slow cooker. No need to run out and purchase a multi cooker if you don't have one (although I really like mine). Use what you have in your kitchen already. Any slow cooker will work...the key to this recipe is the 8 hours of cooking on low to make the meat fork tender and fall apart when you shred it.
