Top sirloin round tip steak, also referred to as the crescent roast or face round roast, is located on the rear section of the cow. Although it is typically considered a lean cut of beef, it can be tough and fibrous. Slow cooking helps to tenderize even the toughest cuts of meat by breaking down the connective tissues. Because your steak cooks slowly in a crock pot, it also has time to absorb more flavor and moisture.

Add a small amount of a heart-healthy oil such as extra virgin olive oil to a pan and brown the meat on all sides. Although you can omit this step, browning the meat before adding it to the slow cooker adds more flavor to your meal.
