Slow cooked sirloin tips with mushrooms and onions simmered in red wine. This dish pairs well with mock mashed potatoes for a low carb meal or serve with noodles for a traditional dish!

Pure comfort food in a bowl made with the best ingredients possible!  Today I’m sharing a recipe that is made with 100% grass-fed beef from a subscription mail delivery service called Butcher Box! Seven to ten pounds of  premium meat delivered to my front door!

This isn’t the first time that I’ve come across grass-fed beef delivery service.  My neighbor and I ordered a split-half a couple of years ago, which is between 80-90 pounds of beef!  That is a lot of meat for two families, especially since we don’t have a lot of freezer space, and only eat beef a couple of times a week.

My neighbor placed the order, picked the beef up from a designated spot during a certain timeframe, and then dropped it off at our houses.

Although we both love having grass-fed beef free of antibodies and hormones to make our meals with, we just don’t have the freezer space, so we didn’t place an order again.

Instead, I try to buy organic chicken and grass-fed beef when I go to the grocery store, but have you noticed how limited the selection is if the option is available? There is usually one small area where the beef is stocked and more often then not the only variety left is ground beef.

Butcher Box had me (and you!) in mind when they developed their business plan. Three to five quality meats of different cuts, which includes a premium cut like the sirloin tip roast that I slow cooked is in every box!

Each delivered box is packed with seven to ten pounds of meat, which will give you about 20 servings.  I had no problem nestling the vacuum packed sealed meat between veggies in my freezer. Even my ice cream stayed it its designated spot completely undisturbed!  BONUS!

If you have cooked with grass-fed or organic meats then you know that the difference in taste is noticeable. Even the way the meat looks is different. There’s not a lot of fat embedded in the beef, so what you are buying is all meat!

How many times have you taken lower quality meats out of the package to see flaps of fat tucked under the meat? By the time I cut off those pieces what I thought was 2 pounds turns into 1 1/2 pounds!

I used the 2.2 pounds of Butcher Box sirloin to cook this Sow Cooked Sirloin Tips with Mushrooms. The meat was lean without any fat that needed to be cut away.

This dish is hearty, full of robust flavor and very easy to make!  The only step that took a few moments was cutting up the sirloin roast into bite size pieces and browning them before putting all the ingredients in the slow cooker.

I added Bordeaux wine, but if you don’t have any wine open feel free to add more broth! You’ll love how tender and flavorful the sirloin cooks up. I served this with cauliflower mock mashed potatoes. The duo is so fabulous together. So much so that I tried to hide the last bit for my lunch.  I need better hiding places.  Alan snagged it as he left for work unbeknownst to me!

    I’ve been getting more and more into crockpot recipes, certainly more-so in the winter months. Mondays are my busiest day of the week at work so it is always nice to come home to a “ready” dinner, definitely going to try this one out this week!

    Thanks for posting! Cheers!
