Since I had a sirloin tip roast that certainly wouldn't need 22 hours in the slow cooker, I only cooked it about 7-1/2 hours and it was done perfectly. I set the roast on a bed of cremini mushrooms, used beefy onion soup mix, since that's what I had in the pantry, only 2 T. of soy sauce to avoid this being too salty, a bay leaf, and just a mere cup of water. The house smelled wonderful and the roast was delicious and flavorful with a rich au jus. We're looking forward to having the leftovers as French Dip sandwiches!


This was really good. I made a few changes though. I used low sodium soy sauce and dry onion mushroom soup mix and it was not salty at all. The beef does not need to be in the slow cook for 22 hours. That is way too long. I put mine on high in the slow cooker and it was done in about 4-5 hours and was really tender and juicy.


My husband made this, so you know it is darn easy! Cooked on low 8 hours the first day, put in the fridge overnight, lifted off the fat in the morning (my trick!) and then put it back on low for 8 more hours with quartered red potatoes, carrots and onions added in. Very juicy and flavorful. We always use low sodium soy.
