Susan's Sirloin Tip Roast
Featured Pinch Tips Video
- 3-4 pound sirloin tip roast
- (get one that fits your crock pot very closely)
- white onion, sliced thin
- 2 clove
- garlic, smashed and sliced
- coarse ground black pepper
- cup water
1Sear roast on all sides by placing in a very hot greased iron skillet and turning every couple of minutes.
2Place roast in crock pot on low. Pour the water around the roast. Sprinkle with pepper and a little salt if desired. Place the garlic and onions over top of the roast. Cover crock pot and cook on low 6 hours.
3With a meat thermometer, check the thickest part of the roast for doneness. I cook until it reaches 160 degrees. When done, remove roast from crock pot with 2 large spatulas or spoons and place on serving platter.
4Take meat juices and onions from crock pot and place in sauce pan. Dissolve 1/4 cup flour in 1/2 cup water and add to drippings. Boil as for gravy until thick. Add more water if necessary to achieve desired consistency.
5This roast should slice - it does for me. The cooking time is approximate depending on the size of your roast and how the crock pot cooks. I used the medium size crock pot - about 3 quarts capacity.
