If you do not have a crock pot use a dutch oven. Which is simply a big pot with a tight lid. Keep it on low and check every hour to stir around and make sure it doesn't boil. Please do not leave on the stove overnight.
You will need:
1 pound (450 g) beef tips
2 cans of french onion soup
5 small potatoes
1/2 red pepper
1/2 green pepper
1 small bag of baby carrots
I add two tablespoons of chili sauce. I hear Taurens like a bit of a kick to their stew. It does add some heat so be warned!
Cube the potatoes and the red and green peppers.
I brown the meat with some olive oil first. Just to sear it and seal in the juice of the meat. You can skip this step of you want to toss the meat and potatoes together in the french onion soup.
Add the French Onion soup to the crock pot with one can of water
Next the potatoes and the meat.
After about 4 or 5 hours add the onions and peppers.
Let cook for hours, I mean H-O-U-R-S! Start it in the morning and let it cook all day or start it at night and let it go all night.
The potatoes take the longest. If you seared the meat first and the potatoes are tender. You are good to go.
Serve it up with some fresh bread.
