Beef Tips with Quinoa
Gluten Free Living – 2021
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.
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!
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 savory one-dish dinner is easy to throw together and also terrific for company. I initially made this recipe in 2016 and thought I would republish it since it was so delicious the first time around.

BEEF TIPS WITH QUINOA
(My own concoction)
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.
Beef Tips with Quinoa is spectacular. Why don’t you give this easy, slow cooker recipe a try?
The quinoa/rice blend expands a lot while cooking so you may have to add additional beef broth or water to get the recipe to your desired texture.
Beef Tips With Quinoa is such an easy meal to prepare since it’s made in the slow cooker.
