bbq beef tri-tip with coleslaw

last night i made some slow-cooked bbq beef tri-tip with some coleslaw!

bbq beef tri-tip
rub spices onto beef:

  • onion powder
  • garlic powder
  • mustard powder
  • cayenne powder
  • paprika powder
  • chili powder
pour on some apple cider vinegar
place in slow cooker on low for 8 hours

bbq sauce
i made "Son of Grok" paleo bbq sauce:
because im tired of wanting bbq and all the store-bought sauces are loaded with sugar!

  • 1 6oz can tomato paste (preferable organic)
  • 1 to 1.5 cups of beef stock (I made my own but if you buy, you want it without salt)
  • 3 Cloves Garlic
  • .5 of an onion
  • 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder

this recipe is a good base but i like a lot of kick to my sauce so i added lots of cayenne, smoked paprika and chili chipotle powder :) 


  • cabbage
  • shredded carrots
  • apple cider vinegar
  • dijon mustard
  • mayo - i gave in and used store-bought :( 
  • pepper
  • salt

mostly paleo meal except for a few ingredients ... mayo has soy in it and the beef broth in the bbq sauce had sugar, caramel coloring and other BS in it - wtf whole foods??? ... looks like i gotta make my own beef broth ...

overall, very tasty meal! :)
