Root Beer Tri Tip (crock pot)

I use Root Beer A LOT (check out all my other root beer recipes) in cooking because I love the flavor that it adds. Sweet with a hint of spice, it’s perfect for cooking meat.

Using a crock pot makes this tri tip fall apart beautifully and it is the perfect mid-week meal. Start it up in the morning and by dinner you’re good to go.

2-1/2 lbs tri tip
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
dash of cayenne
1 can root beer

Mix all the dry ingredients together and rub it on the tri tip. Place in the crock pot.

Pour in the root beer. Set the crock pot on low for 6-8 hours.

Slice or pull apart the trip tip and serve!

    I’m not a huge fan of root beer but I very much like the looks of the finished dish, and that the dish is easy to make in a crockpot.

    I have a need to have something smell good in the house next week, and I’m thinking this is it! There’s a hunk of meat in the freezer just asking for a spa day in the ol’ Crock Pot Of Fun. Thanks for the recipe :)

    (I do child care in out home and have an interview. Nothing sells it like home cookin’!)

    With colder weather on the horizon, I’m thinking I can convince my husband that we need to make this next week. As a bonus, I think we have a bottle of craft root beer leftover from when my teetotaler dad visited late last year. Yum!

    I made this tonight and was super disappointed… Only cooked on low for 5 hours (not the recommended 6-8) and wished I had checked on it sooner, because it was a over-cooked log. Maybe had I checked on it sooner the flavors would have been better but it was just bland and tough. Oh well, you win some you loose some!

    Just made this because I LOVE root beer…it is AMAZING. Added chicken broth, carrots, celery, potatoes, and onions. House smells amazing and my belly is happy! :)
