According to the USDA, an average of 60 lbs. of beef is eaten by every American each year. Beef is easily prepared in the oven, on the grill or in a crock pot. Crock pots make for fast preparation of a beef round sirloin tip roast. This roast is less tender than top sirloin or loin roast, but the long, slow cooking in a crock pot tenderizes this cut of beef.

Step 1

Lightly brown the beef round sirloin tip roast in a medium hot skillet after trimming any fat from the roast. Brown all sides by turning the roast.

Step 2

Place the browned roast in the crock pot. Turn crock pot on the "low" setting.


Step 3

Chop the onion into 1/2-inch pieces. Arrange onions pieces around the roast in the crock pot.

Step 4

Add the onion soup mix to 1 cup of warm water. Stir together until dissolved and pour over the roast in the crock pot.


Step 5

Cover the crock pot and cook the sirloin tip roast seven to eight hours on low heat. Remove the roast and place on a platter for 15 minutes before slicing. Slice and serve on a platter with the cooked onion pieces. Serve the onion soup juice in a gravy boast with the roast.


A can of sliced mushrooms can be added with the onions if desired.
