I know I don't put nearly enough savory recipes on my blog, but it's something I'm trying to get into a little more.
See, I LOVE baking. Making sweets and treats brings me so much joy - it's my form of creativity and therapy. BUT, I cook a lot too. Like, a lot!
I have three little mouths to feed (who eat a lot despite their size), plus myself and my husband. And I can assure you that we aren't over here eating coconut muffins, sweet potato brownies and tahini cookies all day long 😉
So, it's been my goal to write down more savory Paleo recipes in order to get them on the blog. You know, instead of throwing together a bunch of unmeasured ingredients (like I normally do with cooking).
Hopefully, healthy meal ideas like these slow cooker beef tips are something you all are interested in seeing.

How to Cook Beef Tips in the Slow Cooker
A slow cooker or crockpot will work for this recipe.
First, add the stew meat to the crockpot. Make sure the meat is defrosted or fresh. (I used 1 lb stew meat from Butcher Box, which arrives frozen at my doorstep. I defrosted it in the fridge for a couple days prior to use.)
Next, add the garlic and salt. Either use a garlic press to press the garlic cloves, or use a knife to finely chop them. Then, sprinkle the salt over the meat.
Set the crockpot on high and cook for 3-4 hours. Most of the water should have evaporated by this time. If not, then cook a while longer with the lid off.
After cooking, add the coconut aminos, chopped parsley and sesame seeds. Mix until the meat is well coated.
Either serve immediately, or set the crockpot to warm and serve later.
There are many ways to eat this slow cooker beef recipe. I paired it with a fresh salad of: baby romaine lettuce, carrots, red pepper, chopped leek, broccoli sprouts, walnuts and strawberries.
