Ingredients

Beefless tips

Stew

  • 1 medium onion (chopped)
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms (baby bella or white button)
  • 2 tablespoon corn starch
  • 2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 3 medium carrots (chopped)
  • ½ cup frozen peas
  • 4 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 2 large potatoes (peeled and chopped)
  • 2 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 2 vegan beef bouillon cubes
  • 2 medium bay leaves
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 8 cups water

Instructions

Marinate the beefless tips

  • First, put your beefless tips in the fridge so they thaw out if they were frozen. Cut them in half after they thaw. Put them in tupper ware and cover with the beef marinade. Let this marinate ideally over night, or at least 20 minutes.

Stove top directions

  • In a large soup pot, heat 3 tablespoons of oil on medium heat. Once pot is hot, cook the beef tips. Turn them every few minutes so they get browned on each side. Take the beef tips out and set aside. We're adding these in at the end so they won't get mushy.
  • Add a little more oil to the soup pan and saute the onions for 2 minutes. Add the mushrooms and saute until lightly browned ~ 3-5 minutes

  • Add the water, bouillon cubes, bay leaves, potatoes, garlic and peas and bring to a steady simmer. Simmer for 20 minutes or until vegetables are tender.

Instant pot directions

Slow cooker

  • Add all of the ingredients, except the Gardein be'f tips to a slow cooker. Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours.
  • Once you're ready to serve, sauté the Gardein tips in some oil until crispy. Add them to the soup and serve.

Notes

If you don't have a bottle of meat marinade, you can make your own with 3 TBL soy sauce, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp smoked paprika, 1 TBL maple syrup, 1 tsp black pepper.
This stew tastes AMAZING the next day as leftovers.
Don't fret if you can't find the beefless tips, this stew is still good without them.
To make this gluten free, add more mushrooms to sub for the beefless tips (as they're made with seitan which is the protein in wheat) use corn starch instead of flour and Tamari instead of soy sauce.
