Sirloin Tip Roast in the Slow Cooker

A Sirloin Tip Roast is a cut of meat that is perfect for the slow cooker. It is a lean cut of meat. It can lack flavor and moisture because it has a low fat content. That is what makes it perfect for the slow cooker. This is a easy recipe for a busy day. A family favorite. :)

You”ll need:

2 – 3 lb sirloin tip roast

1 1/2 lb small red or yellow potatoes cut into pieces

1 lb baby carrots

1 large onion cut into pieces

garlic powder

freshly ground pepper

Cut potatoes into bite size pieces, put in bottom of slow cooker

 Carrots go on top of potatoes

place cut up onion on top of carrots

sprinkle 1 tsp garlic powder on top of vegetables, place roast on top

sprinkle with garlic powder and  fresh ground pepper

Cook roast on high for 2 hours, then reduce heat to low for 4 -6 hours. (Some cuts will take longer) .Or if you won’t be home just cook on low for 8 hours. Or until fork tender.

The roast comes out fork tender and full of flavor, the carrots and potatoes are so tender and delicious. You can add more potatoes and carrots if you have a larger family:)

    Looks delicious! The hubs has been put on a low sodium diet so that means no more onion soup pot roast! Nice simple recipe that I can’t wait to try. Thanks!

    1. Diane

      I have actually been cutting back on our sodium. I love salt so much. The flavor this has will amaze you. Thanks for stopping by :)

  2. Cindy

    That looks so good! Thanks for sharing!

    Oh my goodness, that Sirloin Tip Roast with those wonderful veggies looks so good. I can almost smell the house as that is cooking away in the Slow Cooker. This is a great recipe.
    Hope you have a wonderful week end and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
    Come Back Soon!

  5. Debbie

    Looks like the roast is on sale this week at Kroger. Your roast recipe will be another thing I want to cook in my NEW HAMILTON BEACH SLOW COOKER I got in the mail today from a friend. :o) The food looks so yummy!!!! xxx

  6. Cristie Ann

    I was looking for a SIMPLE slow cooked roast and veggies recipe that I could use with the ingredients I already have here at home. THIS IS PERFECT, THANK YOU FOR SHARING!!!

  7. mark mcelvania

    i like the way your recipe is laid out with the pictures and easy instructions ty.

    1. Diane

      Thank you. I love pictures and detailed instructions myself. Thanks so much for dropping by.

  8. Rita

    Just put everything together in the slow cooker. 1st time not using any water…..is this okay? Thanks it looks perfect! :)

    1. Diane

      I find that you don’t need any water. The juices from the roast will add plenty of liquid. Let us know how it turns out:)

  9. jen

    My roast came tied up in cooking twine. Should I remove the twine before placing in slow cooker?

    1. Diane

      I don’t remove the twine until after it’s cooked.

  10. james

    WOW! I’m brand new to slow cooking / crock pot cooking and blown away with the ease and quality of this dish! I made some Jasmine rice as a bed for dish. Amazing!

  11. pat

    how long would a 2.487 kilogram sirloin tip roast in the slow cooker take, and can i still cook it with the vegetables as you did.

    thank you

    1. Diane

      That’s about 5 1/2 pounds. You can cook the roast 2 hours on high then turn it to low for another 6 hours. You can certainly add the vegetables. Good luck!

  12. Claire

    What if I am not home to turn the slow cooker from hi to low? Can I just cook the roast on low if I sear it before I put it in the crock pot?

    1. Diane

      Yes, I would cook it on low for 8 hours.

  13. Martha

    Trying your recipe today for Sunday dinner with Jasmine rice.
    Thank you.

    1. Martha

      Tried and my meat came out tough. Found secret to tenderness. I browned my meat on all sides and then placed roast in crock pot and cook on low for 8 hrs.

  14. shelpike

    I am not a good cook so it was a pleasant surprise to hear everyone say how good dinner was tonight! Thank you for sharing :)

  15. Jim

    Ok I cooked it up, but I cheated and rubbed a little salt, pepper and dried rosemary into the meat before cooking. It smells and looks awsome.. I will let you know how it turns out after supper. Thanks for sharing the recipe.. Oh yeah I added some chopped parsnip and celery to the veggies..

  16. Jim

    It was delicious!

    thanks again!

  17. Karin Bermingham

    Alright I’m trying your recipe right now. Looks great, I love simple & easy, & I’m sure it’ll be delish. Love the pics/instructions – if this tastes as yummy as it looks I look forward to trying more. Thanks !

  18. Dyanna

    I am trying this tonight – is there anyway to print your recipes – I need to enlarge the print to read properly.

  19. Lisa

    You don’t mention any liquid. I assume the meat and the steam create the moisture?

    1. Diane

      I have never added any liquid and there is always plenty when it’s finished because of all the moisture created in the slow cooker.

  20. Noreen

    This is going in the crockpot as soon as I leave you a note. Thanks for the easy, peasy recipe! Usually I add liquid but this time I’m going to follow your lead. If it turns out like yours in the pic, I will be thrilled (as will my hubby). Thanks.

    1. Diane

      Thanks for commenting, and I hope your hubby loves it as much as mine does :)

  21. Jessica

    Do I need to sear the meat first? Or can I just put it in crockpot?

    1. Diane

      I don’t sear my meat. I just put it in the crock pot :)

  22. MsWormwood

    Thank you for this. In Florida heat the slow cooker is best option. The market had a sale on sirloin tip. It came out wonderfully tender, and the Aged Parent ate more than three bites.

  23. Judy

    Thanks for a simple, yummy recipes! Always looking for slow cooker meals – make it and leave it, then eat it!!
    Being that I don’t cook, this I can do.

  24. Bill F.

    I have your recipe in the crock pot right now. I added an envelope of Publix’s onion soup mix, because I’ve made it before with a Boston butt roast and the mix, and I like the onion soup flavor. I am cooking it on high for four hours, or more, because I started it later in the day. I’ll let you know how it turns out. I’m sure it’ll be delicious!

    1. Diane

      Thanks Bill. I can’t wait to hear how delicious it turned out :)

  25. michelle

    Do you have to add any liquid to your crock pot for this meal?

    1. Diane

      No I never add liquid

  26. Larry

    I am newly retired and have never cooked in my life. My wife did it all. But I decided that since she still works I should try it. This recipe turned out great. The meat was tender and the veggies were flavorful. Thank you for such an easy recipe. By the way, the wife liked it too.

  27. Jean-Yves

    Would the roast have to be thawed out first?

    1. Diane

      I usually thaw my meat before cooking.

  28. Bob Z

    Is this the same as pot roast?

  29. Anna K

    Do you think if i use regular carrots insted of baby carrots (dont have any at the house at the moment) would that make a bid difference in taste?

    1. Diane

      The big carrots would be just fine :)

    2. Diane

      The larger carrots would be just fine :)

  30. Leslie

    Hi Diane,
    I’m sooo making this right now! Sounds de-lish! My problem is I don’t know how to make gravy! Normally I do a pork roast with basically the same ingredients as above however my hubbys family always add liquid. How do you suggest I do gravy? Thank you sooo much for any advice!
    Leslie

    1. Diane

      Hi Leslie,
      You can some liquid if you like. I usually have plenty with the roast drippings. If you want to thicken up the drippings into gravy I usually use corn starch with a little cold water to thicken up drippings. Hope that helps :)

  31. cynthia

    If I use a 1.5kg roast, will I need to cook it for half the time? The recipe looks easy and so delicious. Thank you.

  32. cynthia

    Aha! I just reread the ingredients and realized that you listed it in pounds, not kg, so my roast is the exact size as the one you call for. Sorry! Also, some recipes say to brown, others don’t, do you find that it makes a difference?

    1. Diane

      Lol! I never brown mine. But you can if you want to. :)

  33. julianne

    Hi there: I am a vegetarian but I am making this recipe for my dad and my 14-month-old son. How do I know when the roast is done? Even as a non-meat-eater, I will say, it smells pretty good having been cooking all day! I put it in at about 11 a.m. and then turned it to low around 1:30. It’s 4:30 now. Anyway, other than your time guidelines, is there a way to test the meat for doneness? And if it is done before my dad gets here, what do you advise I do, so it doesn’t get “over done”? Thanks!

  34. anna

    Can I substitute sweet potatoes for the potatoes?

    1. Diane

      Yes you can substitute sweet potatoes. That sounds delicious :)

  35. Laura

    I am trying to figure out how many pounds of tri tip beef I need to feed 9 people? I plan to do it in the crock pot. My store only has roasts between 2 and 2 1/2 lbs. Is it ok to cook (2) roasts together in the crock pot?

    1. Diane

      When figuring how much for each person I use this rule…1/2 pounds per person boneless…3/4 pound per person bone-in. If your slow cooker is large enough you could cook both roasts.

  36. Adrian

    Trying this for the first time today….looking forward to the outcome…

  37. Amos

    Now that’s a slow cooker roast recipe that works. Especially without all the MSG and things that make you cringe when you read a soup mix or can label. So any roast recipe (most) that has soup or soup mix as the “key” ingredient I stop reading and reject. The sirloin tip roast was worth the less than $2 price difference between it and a similar chuck roast while still being economical and this was a great way to fix it. Whole foods, simple seasoning, simple prep, and very tender. I did marinate the roast overnight in some milk. I also added sliced baby portabella mushrooms and a large bay leaf. The veggies were perfect and the roast so tender. Made enough “juice” that we’ll have the rest of the roast cut/shredded up in the remaining veggies for a hearty beef & veggie soup with no liquid added tomorrow. Let’s just say my wife was a very satisfied kitteh (as she puts it) with happy noises and a contented smile. Btw, I did run mine on high for 3 hours then to low for 2-3 hours as I also was a slacker getting it started.

  38. Kim Oldfield

    recipe calls for sirloin tip roast will the outcome be the same if using top sirloin roast?

    1. Diane

      Yes a top sirloin would work just as well :)
