Sirloin tip roast in the crockpot

I recommend crockpot recipes to the beginner cook because they are so easy. You can enjoy things like turkey wings and even mac and cheese straight from the slow cooker.

Sirloin tip roast in the crockpot or any roast is amazing because who doesn’t love tender slow cooked meat?

To add, the juices from the meat flavor the potatoes, onions and carrots that you add to the crockpot making the recipe even tastier.

The crockpot is versatile enough to cook things to high for 4-6 hours or low for 8-10 hours.You can literally cook while you’re sleeping and wake up to a tender slow cooked sirloin tip roast.

How To Cook Sirloin Tip Roast In The Crockpot

You’ll need these ingredients

  • Sirloin tip roast
  • Potatoes
  • Carrots
  • Onion
  • Beef broth
  • Tomato paste
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Herbs (bay leaf, dried rosemary, dried thyme)
  • Seasonings (salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika)

Simple tips before starting the recipe

  • You do not have to sear the sirloin roast before cooking. I recommend it for more flavor but the roast will still be delicious if you skip this step.
  • Cooking times will vary and when it comes to roast you can expect a temperature to tell you when it is done. For example, each cow is different so each roast is different. Give the roast time for the collagen to break down and the roast become tender. With the crockpot on high this can be from 5-6 hours or low it could take up to 11-12, depending on the size of your sirloin roast as well.
  • Butcher tie or twine isn’t needed here. If the roast comes with the butchers twine you can leave it but you will need to cut it off before you start to shred the meat.

Making the sirloin tip roast in the crockpot

  1. To start, remove the roast from the packaging and pat it dry. You do not need oil here the seasoning will stick just fine. Make a rub out of the seasonings and cover the roast heavy in the seasoning. There will be leftover rub, do not throw this away.
  2. Now, this is optional but in a frying pan on medium high heat add a little oil and sear the outsides of the roast. Do not sear too long or at too high of heat to avoid burning the herbs and seasonings.
  3. In the crockpot, place the roast right in the middle. Around the roast place carrots, sliced onion and the cut up potatoes.Now, place spoonfuls of tomato paste around the sides as well.
  4. Next, fill the crockpot with beef broth slightly above the middle of the roast. Toss in bay leaves, balsamic vinegar, Worcestershire sauce and the leftover seasoning from earlier.
  5. Cover the crockpot and cook on high for 6 hours or low for 10 hours. The final test is with two forks to pull apart the sirloin tip roast. That is when you are done, once the roast is tender.
  6. When the roast is tender give the sauce a good mix in the crockpot before serving and remove the bay leaves. Serve with a classic side and be sure to drizzle the juices across when serving.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Is sirloin tip roast tough?

Sirloin tip roast is a cut similar to chuck roast and brisket. They are all designed to be slow cooked until tender because of the collagen in the meat*. Over time the collagen breaks down and makes the meat super tender. Every cut of beef can not do this. Steaks for example. You could slow cook a steak but it’ll never be tender like sirloin tip roast in the crockpot due to its lack of collagen.

How do I know the roast is done?

When you can easily shred it with two forks. At the 4 hour mark you can piece it with a fork and see small spots breaking down and becoming tender. But, when the roast is ready the entire roast feels this way and you can just pull the strands of meat without an issue.
