  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 lbs sirloin beef tips
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 white onion, diced
  • 8 oz sliced cremini mushrooms
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 beef bouillon cube
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 cup sliced pepperoncinis
  • 1 1/2 cups-2 cups beef stock
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


  1. Season beef with salt and pepper and toss in flour to coat.
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt butter. Add beef in batches and sear on all sides until brown and crusty. Remove to a plate.
  3. Add onions to the skillet and cook briefly, about 2 minutes, scraping up bits from the bottom of the pan.
  4. To Make in the Slow Cooker:
    • Transfer beef and onions to the slow cooker. Add mushrooms, garlic powder, onion powder, dried thyme, rosemary, bouillon cube, Worcestershire sauce, bay leaf, pepperoncinis, and beef stock. Cook on high for 3-4 hours or low for 6-7 hours.
    • Thirty minutes before cooking time is over, whisk cornstarch into 3 tablespoons water and add to slow cooker. Cover and continue cooking for the remaining 30 minutes. Season to taste and enjoy!
  5. To Make in the Instant Pot:
    • Add beef back to Instant Pot (with onions) and add mushrooms, garlic powder, onion powder, dried thyme, rosemary, bouillon cube, Worcestershire sauce, bay leaf, pepperoncinis, and 1 1/2 cups beef stock.
    • Cover and select “Meat/Stew” setting. Cook on high pressure for 35 minutes. Once cooking time is up, let pressure release naturally for 10 minutes before switching the pressure release valve to “venting” to release any remaining pressure.
    • Turn on “Sauté” setting. Stir cornstarch into 3 tables.
