Rained In Recipe

Eli loves fresh carrots from farmers market!

I absolutely love rainy days! Usually we lounge around all day and watch movies, play games, cook comfort foods and best of all cuddle under the blankies!! We took out the biggest tri tip to defrost last night in hopes that it wouldn't rain and Luis could BBQ it, his tri tip is my all time favorite!! However since it did rain I just threw it in the crockpot to enjoy a yummy pot roast like dinner. 
My husband trimmed most of the fat from the tri tip, I like some for extra flavor! I rub the whole thing really good with Susie Q, set it in the crockpot and splash about 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire Sauce ( I just eyeball it). I cut up 3 potatoes, 3 carrots, 1/2 onion and 3 garlic cloves and throw those just spread out over the tri tip. Lastly I add the beef broth just to coat the meat and veggies. I set the timer for 5 hours on high and let the yummy smell take over the house! You may add whatever other veggies you want or have on hand but these are pretty much the ones that taste the best. On occasion I've also added celery. Also you may try whatever favorite seasoning you have on hand, just try not to over salt since the Worcestershire sauce and beef broth has some salt as well. Then enjoy! 
My family loves the crockpot meals I make. I dont usually take credit though because I just throw in what I think might taste good and let the crockpot do the work. I really love my crockpot though it allows me to cook while keeping busy with other stuff as well!
Hope you enjoy this recipe and tell me what you think or how you may change it!
