This recipe for Best-Ever Slow Cooker Beef Tips and Gravy is comfort food at its best. This recipe starts with homemade gravy rather than canned soup. The secret to this recipe's amazing flavor is searing the meat before adding it to the slow cooker. Dijon mustard and thyme are just a few of the flavors in the delicious homemade gravy. Enjoy a hearty portion of the beef with mashed potatoes, rice, or pasta and get ready for a cozy dinner. When the weather turns colder, you will want to return to this recipe again and again!

I always use prepared mustard unless it specifies mustard powder, as the small amount of added wine / vinegar in the prepared mustard never seems to make much of a difference - if anything it adds a nice bright note to the dish. I love that the brown bits are used in the end result and not discarded. A great boost of that beefy flavor that you have already developed in the browning!

I love that you added the word dried to your spices. It makes it so much easier to know whether you are adding the right amount of spices to the dish. Is your Dijon mustard a dry or wet mustard? I am assuming that it is wet or you would have said otherwise, but I want to clarify before making the recipe.

Absolutely delicious beef dish! The flavors in the gravy are spot on, and the aroma throughout the house will have your Pavlovian responses going full tilt. This is one of those dishes I can make when the kids and their families are coming from out of town but aren't sure when they will arrive. Just turn the cooker to the "warm" setting and you can put the beef on hold for quite a while. I use arrowroot powder to thicken gravies, and it works well in this recipe.
