After going through several recipes on this, I winged it to great success. This does not need to be overcomplicated.
~2lbs sirloin tip
3-4 bacon slices
1/4 cup flour
1 tsp. ground sea salt
1/2 tsp. marjoram
1/2 tsp. thyme
1/2 tsp. ground pepper
2 large cloves garlic, minced well
1 beef bouillon cube, crushed, or 1 packet beef ramen flavoring
1 cup burgandy wine
wide egg noodles
In large iron skillet, cook bacon until well-crisped (brittle). Remove bacon to small plate. Roll beef tips in flour and brown on all sides in bacon grease. Break up reserve bacon into smallish pieces, and combine with beef and remaining ingredients (not noodles!) in slow cooker. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Serve over cooked noodles, goes well with a side of steamed veggies and good loaf bread.
Serves 4. Prep time: ~20 minutes. Cook time 6-8 hours.
