Slow-Cooked Beef Loin Tri-Tip Roast

Rated as 4.65 out of 5 Stars

"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."
