Was looking for help making beef tips in a roaster for 100 people. Was planning on using stew meat, brown gravy mix, cream of mushroom soup, and onion soup mix. Any help is greatly appreciated.

You need 2 roasters. 32- 38 pounds boneless stew meat.

Here is a basic recipe that will save you a bunch of money on the soup mixes:

Basic army style braised beef buffet style for 100

2 roasters

BEEF, DICED, LEAN, RAW 38 lbs

WATER 6 1/2 qts

ONIONS, FRESH, SLICED 6 lbs 1 gal 1 1/3 quarts after slicing

PEPPER, BLACK, GROUND 1/4 cup

THYME, GROUND 1/4 cup

GARLIC POWDER 4 teaspoons

BAY LEAF, WHOLE,DRIED 8 each

SALT 7 tbsp

WATER,COLD 8 cups- if you wanted to head it in a mushroom soup direction, you could use milk and add 1 #10 can drained mushroom pieces and stems

FLOUR,WHEAT,GENERAL PURPOSE 7 1/2 cups

I add:

1/2 cup paprika (sweet) to head it in the goulash direction

For most savory results, you can saute the veggies and brown the meat before proceeding, but not everyone does.

Place beef, water, onions, pepper, thyme, garlic powder, bay leaves and salt in roasters at preheated 350. Bring to a boil (takes about 40 minutes- keep stirring); reduce heat to 300; cover; simmer about 2 hours or until tender. Skim off excess fat. Remove bay leaves.

Combine flour and water to make smooth mixture; stir into beef mixture. Blend well. Return to boil (increase heat back to 350). Reduce heat; cook 10 minutes or until thickened. CCP: Internal temperature must reach 145 F. or higher for 15 seconds. Turn roasters to 180 to hold. Hold for service with meat measured at at 140 F. or higher.
