Growing up we had roast beef pretty often. Usually for Sunday dinner whether at home or at my Grandparents house. I loved the smell of a roast beef dinner cooking, and to this day when I smell a roast in the oven, I think back to those days.

As a child though, our roast beef was always well-done, needing loads of gravy for moisture and flavour. There was a time when I just avoided eating beef because I didn’t enjoy the texture or flavour.

My mom always liked to eat her steak medium, and it kind of grossed me out. I thought it was under-cooked and “yucky.” See my dad likes his steak well-done, so that is how I ate mine too.

In my twenties I had a date take me to the Keg. You should have seen the look of horror on his face as I ordered chicken. Yep. Chicken. At a steakhouse.

I just didn’t get the fuss, and didn’t want to eat “raw meat” or dry, flavourless meat. So I ordered chicken. It was good chicken, it really was, but I think I pretty much ruined that relationship by not ordering a steak. Ooops.

Cooking a Beef Roast the Right Way

It wasn’t until I started watching cooking shows like chopped and masterchef that I realised I should probably at least give a medium cooked steak a try. So, a little bit anxious, I ordered a medium cooked steak the next time I was out at a restaurant.

It was delicious.

Juicy and so full of flavour, I immediately thought back to that chicken I ordered and regretted it completely.

It wasn’t long before I realised that I’d been cooking my own roast beef all wrong. I usually cook it in the slow cooker, and yes, it comes out tender and moist but it is also one-note and still over-cooked.

After consultant with a Chef friend, and with a few tweaks of my own, I was able to perfect cooking the perfect roast. It’s just too bad that my husband isn’t in on the beef train, he still likes his well-done. My kids though? They love theirs medium cooked. That is pretty much a win in my books.

The key, I found, was that in order to consistently cook a perfect roast, you absolutely need to invest in a good meat thermometer.

How to Cook a Perfect Sirloin Tip Roast

The secret to this sirloin tip roast recipe is to go low and slow while also carefully watching the internal temperature of the roast.

Using a meat thermometer is key to roasting a perfect cut of beef.  Do not try to wing it and go by the time given in the recipe. These are included as an approximation. It will change based on size, shape and weight of the roast along with from oven to oven.

If you use a meat thermometer you can expect to eat the best sirloin tip roast you have ever eaten.

About the Roast Beef Recipe Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need to cook the best Beef roast of your life:

Sirloin Tip Roast:  I used a Silroin Tip Roast for this recipe because it is a cheap cut that can be hard to cook right. This recipe should also work for any beef roast.

Spices & Seasoning: I use a tons of herbs and seasoning as a crust on my roast, feel free to experiment or just go with plain old salt and pepper. I usually crust my roast and then sear it on and have never had problems with it burning or turning bitter, but you can certainly crust your roast after searing.

Oil: I use extra virgin olive oil but vegetable oil works just as well. The Evoo works well for this recipe because it roasts at a low temp and the searing is pretty quick, it adds a nice depth of flavour to the roast. If you find you have trouble with the crust smoking while searing, use vegetable oil instead.

Do I cover or uncover it in the roasting pan for an hour and twenty minutes?

Leave it uncovered. If you cover it, it will get too hot and will end up well-done quickly.

We made this last night and it was DELICIOUS! By far one of my favorite beef recipes. I took a photo of the sliced roast and shared the recipe on FB. Definitely a keeper!

This recipe was EXCELLENT! The steak was tender for a sirloin roast. My family was IMPRESSED that it was medium rare, delicious, tasty, tender, and juicy. I questioned if I should put the lid on it ? I left off the lid. I used a meat thermometer and checked it, like the recipe said to do. I will share this with my family.

I LOVE this recipe! I have made it 3 or 4 times now. It is a cheap enough cut to have for a regular family dinner (just made it with summer sweet corn and green beans on the side), but it is so tasty and seems fancier than it is, that it’s good for Xmas dinner too (made it last Xmas Eve). I LOVE finding good recipes for meat that I can make year round without an outside grill. Thank you!!
