A 2.24-pound beauty of a roast. I had read other recipes for cooking a roast in slow cooker, none of which sounded like my goal recipe. So here it is a new take on a slow cooking roast recipe. The roast is a 2.24-pound beef loin tri-tip seasoned roast. This one had very little fat.

This was simple & delicious! I used garlic powder instead of fresh garlic, & I didn't have Adobo spice, but it was perfect without it. I also added carrots and potatoes. The roast made its own gravy and it wasn't greasy. I didn't thicken the gravy, or add extra salt. The bouillon was enough. (I used "Better than Bouillon," which comes in a jar). I will definitely make this again. Read More

I used the McCormick Brazilian Steakhouse marinade packs (2) for my 3.5lb roast a day in advance. I followed the recipe and found that even though I had a huge roast, my crockpot slow cooker set on high for 4 hours was way too long. At about the 3 hour mark I checked up on it and it was already way overcooked. I would recommend perhaps cooking it on LOW for 3-4 hours. Other than people being disappointed with the rarity of the meat (It was all well done), the flavor was fantastic and the recipe was fun and easy to follow. I would definitely try this again, but I would adjust the cooking temp and times. Read More

This was good. I used a 2.5 pound roast and it only needed 3 hours to reach a medium internal temperature. I also used a bit more adobe seasoning than requested, rubbing the whole roast before browning. It came out tender and juicy. Thank you MYBADA for your recipe Read More

So simple, so easy, so perfection. For those that find themselves without beef bullion (because I didn't have any either): I used garlic salt sprinkled over the whole roast before searing. After I saute'd the onions I de-glazed the pan with 1 cup of water. I made sure to pour the liquid into the bottom of the slow-cooker but still pile the onions on top of the roast. The resulting gravy/broth from the roast was like Au Jus! It would make an amazing onion cream gravy if you want to take to the next level. The broth is pretty salty so be careful. The roast was seasoned perfectly. Read More

This was delicious! Tri-tip is my favorite cut of beef for roasts and stews. I too added baby red potatoes and carrots (with roast on top) so I doubled the water and bouillon. Adobe seasoning made a nice flavorful broth. Thanks for a wonderful recipe! Read More

This was my first time making tri tip in the slow cooker. I usually broil in the oven however I found my new favorite way to make it. This recipe is simple and delicious. The meat was so tender and packed with flavor. I substituted beef broth in place of the water for more flavor and it turned out great! Hubby was very happy! Read More

I used a rump roast(close enough):It was very good. Following directions exactly for 2.5 lb roast. The meat was med well which is the way everyone here likes it. I strained some of the broth to make gravy. I sliced the beef and kept it warm in small amt of broth and onions in the slow cooker until it was time to eat. Read More
