What are meat tips?
The term meat tips is used in a variety of ways. The technical definition includes a cut of meat that is taken from the tip of a beef tenderloin. It is a tender cut of beef that contains a good proportion of fat that makes the meat extremely tasty.
However, many people also refer to meat tips as stew meat. Although they are not the same cuts of meat at all.
The meat of the stew is actually cut from several sections of the cow. They are the leftover meat sections after cutting the larger roasts and steaks.
It can actually be confusing as several grocery stores label a package of stew meat as meat tips. However, stew meat is hard and requires a longer cooking time than real meat tips.
Low, slow cooking method
True beef tips that are cut from the tip of a sirloin take only a few minutes to cook. Simply throw the Steak Tips into a hot grill or cast iron pan and they’ll be ready to eat in no time.
However, this is not the case with stew meat. Because the meat of the stew is taken from hard sections of a cow, they require a longer and slower cooking time.
Although you can make meat and noodle tips on the stove, this will require about 90 minutes for the meat to break down and become tender. And for most of us, this would have to be done on the weekend when we have time to spend in the kitchen.
Instead, there are other, more efficient ways to cook meat without having to keep a close eye on the stove. Placing the meat in the slow cooker is a great example.
In fact, as much as you want to cook meat over high heat, it is best to let it simmer for 7-8 hours. This low cooking temperature will give the fibers in the meat enough time to break down and become juicy and tender.
However, if you have a pressure cooker, you can also make Instant Pot Beef Tips and Noodles in a fraction of the time. The pressure cooking process will break down the meat perfectly and dinner can be ready to eat in about an hour.

- packet brown sauce mix, low sodium

- tablespoons flour
- 1/4 cup serving water

In a medium bowl, whisk the sauce mixture, meat broth and Worcestershire sauce until lumps are visible. Then add the onion, garlic and mushroom soup cream and bata until well combined. Set the sauce mixture aside.

Then heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet placed over medium-high heat. Add the flour-covered beef to the pan and let it brown on all sides.
Although this optional step adds more flavor to meat and noodle tips, it’s not crucial. If you have extra time to complete this step, great! If not, that’s fine too.

from the stew (and any drips if you browned the meat in the pan) in the slow cooker. Then pour the sauce mixture over the meat tips and stir carefully to cover.
Cover the clay pot and cook the meat tips in LOW for 7 to 8 hours. If you have a programmable clay pot, set it up for 7 hours and let the pot switch to the Keep warm until you get home setting.
