Slow Cooker Sirloin Steak Tip Stew for Two



  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 2 garlic cloves (crushed and minced)
  • ¼ teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 8 ounces small red potatoes (skin on cut into about 1-inch pieces)
  • 2 carrots (cut into ½ inch pieces)
  • 1 heaping tablespoon instant tapioca
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 pound sirloin steak tips (cut into 1 ½ inch pieces)
  • 2/3 cup frozen peas (I forgot to put the peas in the dish when I prepared it, and it was still super good, so I will list the peas as optional)


  1. Lightly spray the inside of the slow cooker with cooking spray.
  2. In a small bowl mix together the oil, tomato paste, garlic, and thyme. Microwave for about 1 minute stirring occasionally; pour the mixture into the slow cooker.
  3. Mix in the beef broth, potatoes, carrots, tapioca, soy sauce, ½ teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper.
  4. Mix the meat into the mixture, cover, and cook on low for 6 – 7 hours or until meat is tender. (4 – 5 hours on high)
  5. Using a large spoon scoop any excess fat off the top. Add the peas and let sit for about 5 minutes for peas to get heated through.
  6. Serve hot.
