Crock Pot BBQ Tri-Tip Sandwiches

This is one of our favorite meals. It's so incredibly easy, and it comes out so tender and tasty.

Ingredients (serves 4-5)

2 pound tri-tip roast
1 (12 oz)bottle of BBQ sauce-I buy the cheapest brand
hamburger buns

Trim the fat from the outside of the roast and cut into four large sections.
Place the four sections in the crock pot and empty the whole bottle of BBQ sauce on top of the meat sections.
Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours.
When the tri-tip has finished cooking cut each section into thin slices, and pile the slices on a hamburger bun.

I served our sandwiches with Lime Tostitos and a green salad. Yum!

What exactly is Tri-Tip Roast? Is there another name for it here in the South? We love barbeque and I would love to make this.

I cannot WAIT to try this!

Hey Southern Gal,
I just did a little search on the tri-tip cut. Evidently it has several other names and is more popular on the west coast. Ya'll don't know what your missing!
(Did I spell ya'll right?)
Here are the other names I found:
-Triangular/triangle roast
-Bottom sirloin butt
-Corner cut
-Culotte steak
Hope that helps.

That looks deee-lishious! Perfect for a cold, rainy day, too. Thx for sharing!

I make this all the time, sometimes I even use pork. I add onions to the mix. We serve on a toasted bun with some Velveeta and a pickle.

Looks good. I have a pork roast in the crock pot right now. I tried putting peach jam on top...I am not a cook (o: we will see how that comes out.

I just happen to have some tri-tip and was thinking of slapping them on the barby, but I think you changed my mind. Now I know what is for dinner tomorrow, just have to decide on tonight.
Found you doing my favorite thing...Blog surfing through Kim @ Today's creative blog. She says I have to go read some of your stories so I had better get to reading.

Trudi said...

Your girls are darling, beautiful. If I did not know better I'd tell you they look just like you. Congratulations.

Cristi said...

You rock! That is awesome! I love the simplicity of it.
I have a recipe for BBQ that is a little more involved, but the result is worth it. I'll e-mail it to you. It involves a co-cola and that is a special treat at our house (for ME)so I love it!

And because I love you, y'all is y-apostrophe-a-l-l (as shown above). That's straight from Alabama, so you know it's legit.

mmm, love tri tip! Sounds delish!

Karen said...

Hey Chrissie - I am in VA and found tri-tip in my local Costco (do you have Costco out there - I bet you do!) Anyway - I couldn't find it at the local grocery but Costco does have it. Thought I would let you know for your reader who wasn't sure about what it was.
Making some tonight! So excited!

This is such a yummy and easy meal. We do a variation of this at our house by throwing in a pork loin along with a can of black beans and jar of salsa. When it's cooked to pull-apart tenderness, we serve pulled pork tacos! So yummy and super easy. Plus, we almost always have leftovers.
