Slow Cooker Tri-Tip Roast


Super tender and juicy tri-tip roast. Throw it together and let it cook all day. Makes your house smell great; people will think you were cooking for hours! One of my mother's recipes I make as often as possible. Serves great with white rice, just place veggies on top. Your whole family will enjoy this one.

Prep Time:

Total Time:
7 hrs 10 mins
1 3-pound roast


  • 3 (10 ounce) cans condensed cream of mushroom soup

  • 2 (1 ounce) packages dry brown gravy mix

  • 1 (1 ounce) package country gravy mix

  • 1 (1 ounce) package vegetable dip mix (Optional)

  • water as needed

  • 1 (3 pound) beef tri-tip roast

  • 3 yellow onions, coarsely chopped

  • 1 (8 ounce) package baby carrots


  1. Mix cream of mushroom soup with the gravy and dip mixes in a bowl until no clumps remain. Add water slowly until desired consistency is reached: thicker for gravy and thinner for faster cooking.

  2. Place roast in a slow cooker and pour the soup mixture on top. Add onions and baby carrots. Cook on Low until beef is tender, about 7 hours.

Cook's Notes:

Use any flavor dip mix you prefer.

Use any roast; tri-tip is just always the most tender.

Also, you can do the same without a slow cooker. Place in the oven at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 4 hours.
