Goan roast is delicious, it’s usually cooked in the pressure cooker, but today I am using my slow cooker to cook a lovely piece of Tri tip. Tri-tip is a cut of beef from the bottom sirloin subprimal cut. It’s a triangular muscle, which is where it gets its name, and it’s known for its rich flavor. It’s popular in the United States, especially in California, where it’s often grilled or roasted. Tri-tip is sometimes called a Santa Maria steak, named after the California town where it became popular.

A slow cooker cooks food slowly over a long period of time at a relatively low temperature. This gentle cooking method helps tenderize tough cuts of meat, allows flavors to meld together, and can be very convenient for busy schedules.

The slow cooker consists of a pot, usually made of ceramic or porcelain, that is surrounded by a heating element. The pot is placed inside a housing that contains the heating element and controls. The cooker is designed to cook food at a low and steady temperature, typically between 170°F and 280°F (77°C and 138°C), over several hours.

Slow cookers are great for preparing dishes like stews, soups, chili, pot roast, and more. They are often used to cook tough cuts of meat, such as beef chuck or pork shoulder, which become tender and flavorful after long, slow cooking. The slow cooker’s gentle heat also helps retain moisture in the food, resulting in dishes that are juicy and succulent.
