Amish Lazy Day Roast Recipe: This Tender 5-Ingredient Beef Tips Recipe Makes Its Own Gravy

We cannot imagine the Amish ever being lazy. But if they are – according to many Amish cookbooks – they make this lazy day roast recipe. With just five ingredients and a gravy that makes itself, you could pull this one off even on a busy day. 

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 1 1/2 hours
Total Time: 1 hour and 35 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 1 1/2 pounds round steak, cut into cubes
  • 2 slices bread, crumbled
  • 1/4 cup sliced celery
  • 1 tablespoon minute tapioca
  • 1 onion, sliced

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Combine all the ingredients and pour into a buttered casserole dish. Season with salt and pepper. 
  2. Cover the ingredients with boiling water. 
  3. Bake in a preheated 300-degree F oven for about 1 1/2 hours.

The Amish lazy day roast looks yummy but doesn’t say how much boiling water to use.
Can someone please let me know. Thanks
Donna John
Christina DaCruz None of the Amish cookbooks specify how much water. You just need enough to cover and give it enough liquid to make a gravy. So I'd say not more than 1 cup. You can always add more, if needed, during cooking time or at the end.
