- Sirloin tip roast - also known as round tip roast. It's a lean but flavorful cut that's relatively inexpensive.
- Olive oil - helps adhere the spice rub to the meat and adds juiciness to the extra lean cut.
- Salt and black pepper - bring out the flavors of the meat and seasonings.
- Parsley - its fresh, herby taste brightens up the deep savory flavor of the roast.
- Dried thyme - adds a peppery-sweet earthiness that complements the taste of beef perfectly. Dried thyme has a more concentrated flavor than fresh, so if you're using fresh thyme, use 3 times the amount.
- Minced garlic - for fragrant garlicky notes.
How To Cook Sirloin Tip Roast
1. Season the roast: Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Rub the sirloin tip roast with olive oil, then season it all over with parsley, dried thyme, minced garlic, salt, and pepper.
2. Roast the beef: Set the seasoned beef roast on a baking sheet and roast it for 45-50 minutes or medium rare. You can use a meat thermometer to test the internal temperature; it should reach 135°F at the thickest part.
3. Tent: Once it's done, take the sirloin roast out of the oven and tent it with aluminum foil, crimping the sides of the foil to the baking sheet. This will keep the roast warm and juicy. Let it sit for 10 minutes, then remove the foil. Slice, serve, and enjoy!
Tips To Make The Best Recipe
- Always let the beef come to room temperature before starting. This is the key to getting the roast evenly and perfectly cooked throughout.
- Before roasting, you can optionally sear the seasoned beef on the stovetop. Do a few minutes on each side to form a nicely browned crust. If you're going to do this step, shave a few minutes off the final roasting time.
- Take the roast out of the oven a few degrees before your desired doneness; it'll continue to cook slightly after you tent the meat. Aim for 135°F (57°C) for medium-rare or up to 145°F (62°C) for medium.
- When carving your sirloin roast, slice it against the grain and at an angle for the most tender bite.
- Reserve the pan drippings and cook them in a saucepan with roux to make a delicious gravy, or simmer them with wine for an elegant red wine jus.
In the fridge: Transfer whole or sliced sirloin tip roast into an airtight container. Store it in the coldest part of your refrigerator for 3-4 days.
In the freezer: Cut the sirloin tip roast into slices and store them in a freezer-safe airtight container or a freezer bag with the extra air squeezed out. They'll stay good in the freezer for up to 3 months.
Reheating: Bring the leftover roast beef to room temperature and place it on a baking sheet or roasting pan. Add a tablespoon or two of beef broth and cover it loosely with foil. Bake in an oven preheated to 250°F (120°C) until warmed through. Slices can be ready in around 10 minutes, while a whole roast can take over an hour.
