Crockpot Beef Tenderloin

I was feeling lazy last week, so instead of actually cooking up a stew like I planned, I threw the beef tenderloin I bought into my slow cooker. I really love my slow cooker. You just throw it all in, and out comes a delicious meal with meat so tender that it just falls apart. YUM!

Crockpot Beef Tenderloin
Kitchen Canister Original


3 lb beef tenderloin
1 cup beef broth
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 bay leaf
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
about 1 tablespoon of McCormick steak rub
1/8 teaspoon chili powder
1 bunch asparagus, broken into 1 inch pieces
1 cup baby carrots


Rinse beef and place in crockpot. Sprinkle spices over beef, and rub with McCormick spice mix. Pour beef broth and vinegar over mixture. Add vegetables. Cook for 8 hours on low.

Servings: 5

Chef's Notes:

Since this is an original, I don't really have many notes. When the beef was done, I pulled it out and put it aside, fishing out the vegetables with a slotted spoon. I made a gravy out of the broth remaining in the crockpot by emptying it into a small pot and adding 1 tablespoon of corn starch. Cook the gravy on high until it boils, then let stand for a few minutes. To complete the dish, I served with a baked potato.


  1. I love crockpot recipes and this looks delicious!!! Very nice that it's an original recipe!

  2. I bet the beef was extremely tender. Looks delicious!

  3. Beef tenderloin slow cooked in the crock pot. You know that something special is happening-Wow!! I can almost taste it from here.

  4. Tenderloin in a CROCKPOT?? This expensive tender cut is usually seared then roasted to internal temperature 120 degrees F, or cut into filet mignon steaks.
