- Remove from the cast iron pan and place into the bottom of a slow cooker.
- Add diced onions, sliced mushrooms, Worcestershire sauce, minced garlic, soy sauce, beef stew mix, gravy mix, broth, and water to the same skillet.
- Cook over medium heat until the mixture begins to bubble.
- Reduce the heat and simmer the gravy mixture for 10 minutes.
- Carefully pour the gravy and onion mixture into the slow cooker over the top of the sirloin roast.
- Cooking times: Heat on low for four hours.
When cooking is complete, serve tender beef and delicious gravy on mashed or roasted potatoes. If desired, top with fresh herbs (rosemary, parsley, or sliced green onions).
Perfect Crock Pot Roast Tips
Do not trim the fat from the roast pieces before cooking. The fat adds depth of flavor and helps keep the beef roast moist during the slow cooking process.
- Use tongs to remove fat from the slow cooker after the beef is ready.
To thicken gravy: Make a cornstarch slurry if you prefer an even thicker sauce.
Mix a couple of tablespoons of cornstarch with a cup of cold water in a separate bowl before adding it to the slow cooker. This helps to thicken the cooking liquids and create a smooth gravy.

Commonly Asked Slow Cooker Recipe Questions
Should I brown the roast before placing it in the slow cooker?
While it’s not mandatory, browning the roast before slow cooking can enhance the flavor by developing a rich, caramelized crust.
Can I cook the frozen roast in the slow cooker?
It is recommended to thaw the roast before cooking in the slow cooker to ensure even cooking and accurate temperature measurement. Cooking frozen meat might result in unevenly cooked and tough meat.
Cuts of Meat for Slow Cooker Roast:
Often, there are shortages of different cuts of meat available in local stores. Some beef roast options work well and still create juicy pot roast pieces.

Side Dish Ideas for Tip Roast
When it comes to serving the perfect sides with your Crock Pot Sirloin Tip Roast, plenty of side dish ideas will complete your meal.
Green Bean Casserole: While most people only think of this dish as a Thanksgiving classic favorite, this casserole made with fresh green beans and cream of mushroom soup is also the perfect choice for pot roast tips.
Macaroni and Cheese: Indulge in the ultimate comfort food with this creamy and cheesy side dish—the combination of tender pasta and gooey cheese pairs perfectly with fall-apart tender sirloin tip roast.
Biscuits: With all that gravy, it would be a shame not to add some biscuits to sop it up. Frozen ones work great (we love Mrs. Schusters), but if you feel like it, making fresh ones at home is also satisfying.
