Sirloin Tip Roast-A really lean cut of beef that is best cooked low and slow until tender and it falls apart.
Carrots, potatoes, and onion- These vegetables hold up really well in the crockpot over a length of time and they bring lots of flavors into the roast.
Spices- A blend of salt, pepper, thyme, paprika, garlic and onion powder are used for seasoning.
Beef Stock-Made with the bones of the animal and has a much deeper richness than beef broth. I highly suggest All Kitchen Beef Stock if you can find it in your grocery store. Otherwise, any brand of beef stock will do.
Butter, flour and tomato paste- Create a roux to thicken the beef stock at the end of cooking and bring in a bit more flavor.

Substitutions and Variations:
If you can't find a Sirloin Tip Roast, a Chuck Roast is a good substitute. Look for one in the 3 to 4 pound range.
How to Make Sirloin Tip Roast in the Crockpot:
Step 1: Bring a large dutch oven or pot to medium heat on the stovetop. Add in olive oil and allow it to warm up. Place the roast in the dutch oven and sear each large side for 2 minutes. Transfer the roast into the crockpot.
Step 2: Whisk together the salt, pepper, paprika, dried thyme, garlic powder and onion powder. Sprinkle over the roast in the crockpot.
Step 3: Surround the roast in the slow cooker with garlic, carrot, onion, and potatoes. Pour beef stock over the roast. Cook for 8 hours on low, flipping half way through. After 8 hours, turn the heat to high and cook an additional hour or until the internal temperature is between 200 and 205 degrees and the meat is easily pulled apart.
Step 4: Remove the beef to a cutting board and shred into pieces using your hands or two forks. I take the potatoes out because they are really tender at this point and easily fall apart.
Step 5: While the roast and potatoes are out of the crockpot, melt the butter and add into a bowl with flour, tomato paste, and about ½ cup of stock from the roast. Whisk together until no flour is visible and add into the crockpot. Stir to combine.
Step 6: Add the beef and potatoes back into the crockpot and season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve straight from the slow cooker or on a platter.
Step 7: If you're serving on a platter, use a deep one, so you can serve with the stock in the dish or serve extra on the side. Top with fresh parsley and enjoy!
- The easiest way to shred beef is with two forks or just using your hands to pull it apart.
- Cooking a larger roast than 3 lbs? You will need to cook it longer, between 10-11 hours. I don't recommend cooking a larger than 4 lb roast in the crockpot.
- If you want the juices to get thicker like gravy, remove a few ladles of stock and discard before adding the flour, butter and tomato paste roux. Double up the butter and flour to 2 tablespoons each.
No, but I do think you will get an overall better flavor and it will cook for less time.
The internal temperature of the roast should reach between 200 and 205 degrees. This will ensure the roast has been slow cooked until it will easily pull apart and be full of flavor.
Store the leftovers in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
If you have a lot of roast leftover, try serving it over baked potatoes or even eating the beef on a hoagie roll with some provolone cheese. You could also make quesadillas with the leftover meat. So many choices!
