Last weekend, I had a Tri Tip roast that I had to cook. I had planned to BBQ but it rained (poured actually) all day, so that wasn't happening. I was going to put it in the crockpot, but forgot. At 4:00 I figured I'd better decide what to do with it and started to search my pantry and fridge and came up with beef broth, onion soup mix, carrots and potatoes.
One of my favorite restaurants is Wood Ranch Grill in Yorba Linda, CA. They have amazing tri-tip soup. I searched for the recipe and couldn't find one, so I made one up. (Sorry, I totally forgot to take a photo of this one!)
Tri Tip Soup
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 lbs trimmed Tri Tip, cut into small chunks
2 cans beef broth
1 package Onion Soup Mix
3 cups water
2 cups potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
2-3 cup raw vegetable (carrots, green beans, mushrooms, etc)
2 Tbsp Minced Garlic
1 tsp Liquid Smoke
1. Heat olive oil in a 5-6 quart pot; add Tri Tip and brown on all sides. Drain.
2. To the meat, add beef broth, water and onion soup mix. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for about an hour, covered.
3. Add vegetables, garlic, and Liquid Smoke. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for about 30 minutes, or until vegetables are tender. Season with salt and pepper if desired.
4. Serve and enjoy!
