Southwestern Crock Pot Tri Tip Slow Cooker
A spicy and flavorful southwestern tri-tip recipe to spice up the dinner table.
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
3 lb. tri-tip roast
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried cilantro (optional)
3/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 + 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 + 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
2 dashes ground cayenne pepper
1/2 cup gluten free beef broth (See [gluten free products list for brands|https://glutenfreerecipebox.com/gluten-free-products-list-page-2/)
1 Tablespoon chipotle salsa sauce ( Bufalo brand) (or gluten free hot sauce and sugar/stevia, to taste)
1 teaspoon gluten free Worcestershire Sauce (Lea & Perrins)
Salt, to taste
1/2 cup additional gluten-free beef broth
2 teaspoons potato starch (or cornstarch)
Trim the tri-tip roast of excess fat.
Preheat olive oil in a heavy 12-inch skillet and sear meat over medium-high heat until brown on all sides.
Transfer roast to the crockpot/slow cooker.
Sprinkle both sides of the roast lightly with each seasoning (oregano, cliantro, cumin, garlic powder, and onion powder). (Go extra light on the cayenne pepper or omit).
Add 1/2 cup broth, chipotle sauce, and Worcestershire sauce and stir.
Cover and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours
Once the meat is fork tender, transfer it to a cutting board and slice against the grain. Leave the crockpot on high to keep the broth piping hot for thickening.
Add 1/2 cup broth to the crockpot to create additional gravy, if desired.
Combine the starch and water and slowly pour into the broth and stir until thick.
Add sliced tri-tip back in pot and lower heat to "Keep Warm" until ready to serve.
