Crock Pot Tri-Tip
This was another easy dinner (almost embarrassingly easy). Got a crock pot? Got a tri-tip? Got an onion and some wine? .... Guess what?... You got dinner!!!
I literally threw the tir-tip (fat side down) in the crock pot this morning on the way to work.
It was a hit with the family... and I enjoyed a low-maintenance evening... Ahhhhhh, nice.
Tri-tip, 2-3 lbs.
1 yellow onion, sliced chunky
5 garlic cloves, slightly crushed and halved
3/4 C broth (chicken or beef)... preferably organic, low sodium
3/4 C red wine
1 T Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp. black pepper
pinch sea salt (optional)
Place tri-tip in the crock pot. Cover with onion and spices. Pour wine and broth over the top. Cover and cook on low for about 7 hours... Done! :-)
I served this with a side of cauliflower rice. I just shredded the cauliflower in my cuisinart. Season with a little olive oil (1 T), black pepper and chives (or any spices you choose). Put in a bowl, cover with seran wrap, and microwaved for a few minutes on the vegetable setting. Quick and easy, too! I LOVE cauliflower rice.
Hope you enjoy this easy winter time-saver!
