Granddad's Golden Mushroom Sirloin Beef Tips

Updated August 2019

It was strange to me when my dad started cooking, much later in his life. He loved to cook with wine, which my mother did not, so we had many interesting dinners when he started "experimenting!"  

For the most part he did an amazing job, and many of them I love and prepare to this day. This recipe for his Golden Mushroom Sirloin Beef Tips is one of my family's favorites, and we have it from time to time when I'm in the mood for one of  "dad's dinners!"

My dad originally used sirloin beef tips my parents purchased at a local butcher, but over the years we all started using stew beef instead which is more budget-friendly.


2 lbs stew beef cut into 1-inch pieces
1 medium clove garlic, minced 
2 cans cream of mushroom soup 
1 Tbsp. chopped onion 
3/4 cup sherry 
1/2 cup water

Place all ingredients in a slow cooker and stir until blended. Cover and cook on low 8-10 hours. Serve over rice or egg noodles.

*Cook's note - 
  1. Beef tips can also be baked in a large covered casserole dish or Dutch oven in a 350-degree oven for 2-3 hours.
  2. You can use marsala wine or red wine such as a cabernet sauvignon in place of the sherry.
