Mia's Slow Cooker Tri-Tip

READY IN: 5hrs 20mins
Recipe by Mias Daddy

Shreaded beef tri-tip. I like this recipe because of the quick prep time. I came up with this as an experiment using my new slow cooker and was very happy with the result. Spicyness can be adjusted to your own taste. As written, this is mild to medium.

My family loves this recipe!! The first time I made it I served it on King's Hawaiian rolls with red cabbage on top. The second time I made tacos with guacamole on the side. There were no leftovers either time. It is a simple and flavorful recipe!
