Slow Cooker Sirloin Tip Roast
- 3-4 pounds of sirloin tip roast
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 large onion, sliced
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 cup beef broth
- 1 cup red wine (optional)
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped (or 1 teaspoon dried)
- 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped (or 1 teaspoon dried)
- 2 bay leaves
- 4-5 medium carrots, cut into 2-inch pieces
- 3-4 medium potatoes, cut into quarters
- Season the sirloin tip roast with salt and pepper on all sides.
- Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the roast and sear on all sides until browned. This will help to lock in the juices and give your roast a beautiful color.
- Place the sliced onions at the bottom of the slow cooker.
- Transfer the browned roast to the slow cooker on top of the onions.
- In the same skillet, add minced garlic and cook for about 1 minute, until fragrant. Add the beef broth, red wine (if using), and Worcestershire sauce, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Bring to a simmer.
- Pour this liquid mixture over the roast in the slow cooker.
- Sprinkle the roast with the chopped rosemary, thyme, and add the bay leaves.
- Arrange the carrots and potatoes around the roast.
- Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours, or on high for 4-5 hours, until the roast is tender and the vegetables are cooked.
- Once the roast is done, remove it from the slow cooker and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing. This will allow the juices to redistribute throughout the roast.
- Serve the roast with the cooked vegetables and some of the cooking liquid as a gravy, if desired.
