Slow Cooker Tri Tip French Dip Tacos


From now on when I redefine something I am making it healthier, easier and STILL So tasty- these tri tip SLOW COOKER French dip ESK crispy tacos are just that. Most of the work is done while you are doing the damn thing during the day. But when you get home you will shred that tender meat, strain the AU JUS, then dip your tacos in it BIRRIA style, add it to a skillet with some cheese, flip it for that crispy crunchy texture, then make your tacos and dip them in that reduced au jus.
