Healthy Beef Tips Over Rice

July 5, 2013Teresa

2013 – Gluten Free Living

Healthy Beef Tips Over Rice is such a scrumptious beef entree. One of the great things about this recipe is that it’s made in the crockpot. I have to admit I love cooking in my crockpot. This is especially the case during hot Texas summers when I prefer not using the ovens quite so much. Crockpot recipes are so easy, and you don’t have to stand over a hot stove stirring and stirring! Healthy Beef Tips Over Rice is a tasty, savory recipe made in the crockpot that’s quick, easy, economical, and most of all HEALTHY!

I soak brown whole grain rice almost as long as the main recipe has to cook in the crockpot so all the bad enzymes are removed from the grain and the good enzymes are activated to make digestion easier. Healthy Beef Tips Over Rice is made with gluten free flour, too, so it is gluten free and dairy free for those who are looking for those kinds of recipes.

A few weeks ago I was looking for ways to use up some beef stew meat and steaks in my freezer. I came across several Beef Tips recipes. But without exception, every single one used canned soups or gravy mix or both! Canned soups and instant gravy mixes are filled with MSG and so many other tumor and cancer-causing fillers.

I’ve really been trying to avoid them as much as possible and eat cleaner, healthier foods–usually from unprocessed foods, or at least without all the excess junk. It’s hard because so many of my older recipes are made with these ingredients. I still make those recipes on occasion. But more and more, I’m trying to provide healthier options for our family. This recipe is one of those healthier options.

Because I was unable to find any healthy version for Beef Tips I decided to come up with my own version. I have to admit this beef entree turned out exceptionally well. So well, in fact, that I will probably make Healthy Beef Tips Over Rice my standard recipe for Beef Tips from now on.

I made my own sauce using MSG-free beef broth and Tamari soy sauce which was incredibly tasty, and the sauce was thickened by dredging the beef in the gluten free flour. This recipe only took about 3 1/2 hours in the crockpot. Actually, it was probably done in 3 hours on high, so it cooks relatively quickly for crockpot cooking.

If you’re looking for a healthy version of Beef Tips, than look no farther than Healthy Beef Tips Over Rice. The mushrooms, onions, leeks, and garlic provide wonderful flavors and texture to this great main dish entree. Enjoy this guilt-free version of beef tips with your family this weekend!

Healthy Beef Tips Over Rice is a truly healthy option for dinner for those trying to eat clean or eat more of a paleo diet. The sauce in the beef tips was terrific. I didn’t use anything fancy–just salt, pepper, Tamari and beef broth–but the flavors were amazing.

    How many calories per serving?

      Hi, Kay, I really don’t know how many calories per serving. You’d have to plug in the ingredients to one of those calorie counters online to get that information. Sorry. Have a great week.

    Looks great. I think I’d like this over potatoes as well – one of my guilty pleasures! Speaking of which, you could try potato flour instead of rice flour which may cut the grainyness of the gravy.

    Thanks for the recipe!
