Susan's Sirloin Tip Roast

I think this recipe came with my new Crock Pot when I got married in 1976. I served it for the first fancy meal we had, inviting our pastor and his wife for dinner. It got rave reviews. I hope I have remembered it correctly.


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

Directions Step-By-Step

Sear roast on all sides by placing in a very hot greased iron skillet and turning every couple of minutes.
Place 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.
With 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.
Take 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.
This 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.

I would recommend 8 hours on low power, or at least 4 on high - depending on how done you like the roast.

I have never cooked a sirloin tip roast in the crockpot before. I'm going to try it today with your recipe, using my new 4qt CP. Can you guess as to how long it should cook? My roast is estimated at 3.5-4lbs.

Colleen, do you know if the thickener you mentioned is carbohydrate free? Or at least low carb? I would never have thought to check a medical supply store for thickener. Thanks, ladies, for the tip. Hope you both have a happy Easter!

@ Nancy - I've been great! Still running twice a week, which is the most exciting thing I've done in my life. @Colleen - Hi, Sweetie! We used to use something called "Thicken-It" with my father, and it was at medical supply stores or could be ordered by pharmacies. But I don't know if it was gluten free.
