I am interested in making delicious, unusual meals and desserts, particularly for special occasions. Quick and easy meals are also great.

Beef Tips - Almost Effortless Cooking


Easy Crockpot Beef Recipe

A crock pot recipe is typically easy to make, and there are numerous choices for great meals. Beef Tips and Paprika Chicken are just two of these easy crock pot recipes, which require almost not effort on your part. Put your ingredients in the crock pot in the morning, then you can forget about cooking for the rest of the day until it is time to serve the meal.

One of the great things about this recipe is the choice of beef can be the sirloin tips, stew beef also works, or you can cut up a pot roast. This can be a great savings in the meat department. The cheaper cuts end up tender and delicious due to the long hours in the crock pot.

Crockpot Paprika Pork


  • 3 to 4 pounds country style pork ribs, boneless
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons Hungarian paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Dash pepper
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion, halved, sliced
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup sour cream


Wash pork and pat dry. Combine flour, paprika, salt, and pepper in a food storage bag. Toss pork in the bag and coat thoroughly.

Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork and onions; brown for about 5 to 6 minutes, turning pork ribs once to brown both sides. Arrange the browned pork and onions in a 5 to 7 quart slow cooker. Pour chicken broth in the hot pan and scrape up browned bits; pour over the pork.

Cover and cook on Low for 6 to 8 hours. Remove pork and keep warm.

Pour juices into a saucepan and place over medium heat. Simmer for 5 to 8 minutes, until reduced by about 1/4 to 1/3. Remove from heat and stir in sour cream; serve the sauce with the pork.

Serves 4 to 6.

Crock Pot Recipes

In Conclusion

Use your crock pot to save time and to enjoy delicious, easy recipes. Put your meal in the crock pot in the morning, then go to work and don’t worry about it.

Serve it over hot buttered noodles or if you don’t care for noodles, try it with rice. It’s hard to go wrong with a recipe this simple. The other perk to these recipes is you can reheat the leftovers for another meal right in the crock pot. Serve a fresh salad or vegetables, and you have a great meal!

    Love beef tips, and this seems like a much easier way to do it than the traditional method. Will have to try's on the list in any event. There's been a lot of cooking hubs lately...

    You'd think there was a contest or something. :)
