How to make it

  • Turn on the crockpot to High.
  • On your stove, brown the tri-tip in a pan without oil until lightly browned on both sides.
  • Place beef in crockpot.
  • Cover the beef with the canned tomatoes then sprinkle with the taco seasoning.
  • Sprinkle the chopped onions over the seasonings and cover the pot.
  • Cook for at least six hours until tender.
  • When the beef is tender, remove from crockpot and chop, shred or slice. (If the meat isn't tender, return cut beef back into the pot and cook for 30 minutes to an hour longer.)
  • The beef is now ready to be used in your favorite recipes. Use the sauce, too as its full of flavor!
  • *** I cook 2 tri-tips at the same time. I chop up one for burritos or enchiladas and save the other one which can be used like a pot roast or frozen for another meal. This beef is great when sliced and served on rolls for sandwiches.
  • You can also just slice and serve the beef as it is. Serve a few slices over some white rice and spoon some of the sauce over the top of the beef.
  • Also, you can cook this in the oven using a Dutch Oven or casserole dish. Bake at 350 for four hours. I'm sure that you pressure cooker folks out there could do this in your pressure cooker as well. Just don't add any liquids as the canned tomatoes give the meat just enough sauce to cook in.
  • Our Favorite Burritos Recipe...
  • Using large flour tortillas (the huge ones for burritos), heat up your tortilla in a large frying pan until it is warm and a few large bubbles form in the middle of the tortilla.
  • Spread the tortilla with warmed refried beans on one half of the tortilla. Sprinkle with shredded Monterey Jack cheese. Place the hot shredded beef over the cheese. Sprinkle with freshly chopped tomatoes, onions and cilantro. Add a few teaspoons of sour cream and roll up and seal.
  • Serve on a plate next to a small salad with a few tablespoonfuls of bottled salsa on top and some freshly-cooked corn OR a large good scoop of refried beans sprinkled with shredded cheese.
  • And Yessssss, you can make this with chicken! Try using six to eight chicken breasts. You can use the frozen breasts or tenders that come in those large plastic bags or fresh breasts. The cooking time will be about four hours with a crockpot set on high. You can cook this all day on low, too. Happy munching!
