This needs lots of Giardinera. The cut of meat wasn't quite right either. My hubby says this is a make again, but I was disappointed. Just didn't taste like Chicago style. Guess I should have looked for a Chitown recipe.
Update: much better the second time around. I quadrupled the garlic. Also used a smaller cut of meat - 3lbs. So maybe for this large a cut use a extra onion soup packet. To make as written was sort of bland to me.
So delicious! I also used the mild banana peppers and juice instead of vinegar. I have made this with beer and also with Marsala wine. LOVE IT with the wine best! So easy and works great for casual get togethers!
This has become one of our family's most requested meals. Thank you for sharing!
Wow this was Great & so easy! Not necessarily Italian but The whole family was saying this is a repeater. I'll be hauling the crockpot down to river so I can make this for the crowd. My changes were: 3lb Chuck Roast, 2 cans of Campbell's Beef Consomme in place of broth & water, did use a can of beer, & threw in extra crushed garlic. Definitely splurge on some bakery quality rolls : )
Although the flavor of the finished product was not what I was expecting, I must say I liked it anyway. Not sure if Beef Tip Sirloin Roast is the same thing as "Tri Tip", but I could only find Tri-Tip in the store. Seemed to work well, but it took the full 6-7 hours to tenderize that meat. When I make it again, I will skip the 1 c. of water. Crock pot cooking generates enough liquid that that can be eliminated. I added some pepperocinis + some of the juice because I knew I'd like that extra kick. I would also throw in more garlic next time and some fresh ground pepper. Quite yummy overall and so easy to whip together.
