This dinner was a new twist on an old favorite: Boiled Dinner. Made with a tri-tip, accompanied by carrots, onions and potatoes, cooked in the slow cooker for hours to blend the flavors and make it fork tender. It could not be any easier. I hope you Enjoy this delicious meal!
Take the tri-tip from the freezer and place in the slow cooker on low heat. Add the broth and water, a-1 sauce, worcestershire sauce, onions, garlic, pepper, Mrs. Dash, carrots, and place the whole potatoes on top of the meat. The slow cooker should be about 3/4 full of liquid and cover the ingredients. If not, add more water. Let it cook at least 3 hours on low, then raise the heat to 2 hours on high, then back down to low for remaining cook time. It will take 6 hours or a little more to get done. Make sure the meat is fork tender and the vegetables are tender before serving. You can make gravy from the broth or cut the meat in slices and drizzle the broth over the meat and the potatoes and carrots. It makes good open faced sandwiches the next day with mashed potatoes and gravy. Enjoy!
Cook's Tip: I cooked this meat frozen rock hard in the slow cooker. It took 6 1/2 hours to get done. Keep in mind, if you use fresh meat, it should lessen the cooking time. This is a good recipe if you have to be away from the house for a long period of time. You can still come home to a great dinner!
