Beef Tips in Mushroom Sauce Crock Pot Recipe

2 pounds lean chuck – cut in 1 – 3/4 inch pieces
1 can 98% fat free cream of mushroom soup
1 pkg. onion soup mix
1 can Diet Sprite or 7up

*Feel free to bulk this up with any zero point vegetables that you choose!

Put meat in crock pot. Pour soup & onion soup mix over meat. Add Diet Sprite/7up. Cook in crock pot all day on low (or high for at least 4 hours). Turn off and let sit for 30 minutes before serving.

Makes 8 servings.
Each serving = 6 Weight Watchers Points


  1. This is the most garbage recipe I have ever seen. If you want to “watch your weight” then you should eat real, whole foods. Any recipe that calls for chemical packets and a CAN OF SODA is not good for you. Gross.

  2. I followed the recipe exactly as written, except I added chopped zucchini, mushrooms and carrots to the crock pot, and cooked it on low for 8 hours. When I tasted it, it was extremely bland, so I added salt and a second packet of the onion soup mix, and that made it pretty tasty. My husband loved it, and my dinner guests enjoyed it as well. The broth looked nothing like the pic, and did not thicken like I expected it to after I turned off the heat. If I made it again, I would probably add a little cornstarch to thicken the sauce.

  3. I took this recipe and made it edible.
    I don’t use diet anything either because it all tastes awful.
    Use a flavorless meat tendorizor before cooking then **brown the beef!!** Add a little butter to a pan and brown all sides of the cut meat, while its Browning sprinkle some of the powdered soup on top and mix it around when done browning put in a baking dish( juices too) that has a cover add the remaining onion soup mix powder 1 can of the cream of mushroom mix together add just enough of the soda to cover the meat. I’ve used sprite,7 up and ginger ale all work. Cover and place in 325 degree oven for atleast 2-3 hours check around 2 hours meet should be almost perfect by then!

    Use half red wine and half seltzer or club soda…cheers!

  5. Can you make this with regular soda? I am allergic to all artificial sweeteners.

    • Sure, I think the recipe only calls for Diet Soda because it’s Weight Watchers friendly.

  6. To thicken the sauce I used potato flakes and it made a nice gravy! Only took about 3 hours on high, so watch your time.

    I make my roast very similar to this….but i use diet coke and it make a bid difference….it doesnt have a sauce like the picture tho but i add carrots and potatoes and slow cook for 6-8 hours depending on the size of it…I leave mine as a whole roast tho

    Just made this today using stew meat – added carrots and sliced mushrooms. It’s tasty. I also didn’t use the Sprite – just water. Definitely needs to cook eight hrs. I turned mine off after five hours, and the meat isn’t as tender as I expected.

  9. I made this with venison tonite, and it was WONDERFUL. I followed the recipe pretty much to the letter, cooked on low from about 7 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. I did whisk in some cornstarch to thicken it right before serving. Served over rice with a side of broccoli. Looked just like the photo!

    Instead of the crock pot I would try this in a covered roaster in the oven, 4 hrs at 275. Fine to replace diet soda with water (I’m not a fan of artifical sweeteners, anyway). It won’t be so watery and will hold together better than meat cooked in the slow cooker usually ends up.

  11. I am going to try this but without the sugary soda. Will add either club soda or water. Sounds wonderful, maybe over egg noodles? Yummmy

  12. I made this 2 days ago and doubled the recipe and my family can’t stop eating it. Even I like it and I am not crazy about meat with sauce on it but it is really good.

  13. Just had this for dinner over rice. I loved it, but nothing like the picture! Even my son ate it and he hates “meat” lol

  14. I made this today and had to throw it out and order pizza. It was awful – so many things wrong with this. First of all, it doesn’t say how long to cook it on low. It just says “all day” so I did 8 hrs on low. The meat fell apart into a million tiny pieces and basically became a bunch of slop that looked just like dog food. The meat also had NO taste. The sauce tasted ok, but the meat itself was gross. Threw the entire thing into the garbage can.

      • I agree..the sauce looks NOTHING like the picture! but what I have tasted so far it seems yummy. I think meat falling apart is a good thing..isn’t it?

    • Mrs. Smith Reply

      I cooked it on low for 5 1/2 hours. I omited the soda cause I didn’t have any. And added more seasoning. The meat didn’t fall apart. It was very tender and tasted delicious with mashed potatoes.

    Hi. I have been looking for a good beef tip recipe and this sounds wonderful, however my husband is allergic to mushrooms. Is there another type of sauce I could use and it be equally as good?

    • Any “cream of” soup should work.. cream of chicken, cream of onion, cream of celery maybe..

      • Wondering if it wasn’t meant to say golden mushroom soup instead? That is what it looks like in the pic. To me, the cream of mushroom looks gross anyway.

  16. I have a question? why diet sprite/7up? what is its purpose?

    • Mrs. Smith Reply

      I didn’t use the soda cause I had none. Tasted fine with out it. I was wondering too what the purpose was.

      • Margaret Kinasz Reply

        The soda acts as a tenderizer. I prefer using root beer, adds a slightly spicy flavor that is not too sweet.

        The soda is a tenderizer. I prefer root beer with beef or pork, it adds a slight spicyness and, surprisingly, it is not too sweet.

    Not into “points”.  How many calories, how much saturated fat, how much sodium???

  18. can this recipe be made on a stove-top or in the oven, instead? I'd like a quicker way of doing it without having to wait the 4 hrs cooking time in a slow cooker. Thanks!

  19. made this tonight for dinner along with corn on the cob and mashed potatoes and homemade biscuits and it was soooo good! i cooked this for 9 hours and it was amazing!!!! i added mushrooms too

  20. cheryl Squire Reply

    I made this recipe and added frozen peas, diced red and green peppers and onions. It came out delicious…like pepper steak!!

  21. I make this a lot, and always add a bag of baby carrots. I use super trim stew meat instead. I also use water instead of soda. Its great when served over brown rice.

    1pound of beef tips is usually 14pts (depends on exact weight), the cream of mushroom soup is 3 pts, the onion soup mix is 0pts.

  22. I hate it when it tells you how many servings it serves, how many points it is per serving, but it doesnt tell you how much a serving is. Does anyone know?

    • The serving size will vary depending on the size of your chopped veggies and beef. The most accurate way to determine it, is to divide the whole dish into 8 equal servings.
