Beef Tips with Quinoa

Gluten Free Living – 2016

Beef Tips with Quinoa is a delightful crockpot recipe that’s not only healthy, but delicious as well. It’s a clean-eating entree that includes beef round steak, bell peppers, onions, leeks, carrots, celery and peas along with a rice and quinoa blend. It’s seasoned to perfection and so easy to make. The ease of tossing everything in the crockpot makes it a wonderful family recipe that’s great for weeknights when you’re super busy.

This is one of those fun recipes that was created on the spur of the moment. I saw a deal on round steaks at the grocery store one day. Then I found a rice/quinoa blend that I wanted to try with it. I added lots of veggies and it turned out absolutely fantastic.  I prepared a meal back in November for friends who had just moved into a new home. I also sent along about half of a batch of Beef Tips with Quinoa so they would have an extra meal. They all loved this entree, including the teenagers!

If you’re looking for a sumptuous beef entree that you can make in the slow cooker, then give Beef Tips with Quinoa a try. You’ll find that this will be one of those recipes that will go on your regular rotation. It’s that good!

Recipe Notes

NOTE: Avoid the temptation to add more rice and quinoa. While the recipe will be soupy when you add it to the crockpot, once the rice and quinoa cook they expand and will fill up the crockpot! You may even find it necessary to add additional beef broth or water to thin slightly.

NOTE: If reheating this, you will probably have to add additional beef broth or water as the quinoa and rice will absorb all the liquid in the recipe.

I made this entree thick, but if you prefer it more soup-like, you can add additional beef broth or water. The longer the entree sits, the more liquid is absorbed by the rice and quinoa. If you refrigerate the recipe, you will have to add additional broth or water.
