Ingredients:

(4 servings)

For roast:

  • 1 chunk 5lbs sirloin tip roast
  • 1 stick of melted butter
  • 4 cloves of fresh garlic 
  •  ½ tsp oregano
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper
  • ½ tsp fresh thyme
  • 1¼ tbsp paprika
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp of black pepper
  • ½ tbsp salt

For sauce:

  • 1 cup dairy sour cream
  • ½ cup prepared horseradish
  • 2 tbsp of milk
  • 1 tbsp snipped fresh chives
  • 1/8 tsp ground white pepper

Instructions

The sirloin tip is unique since it looks different from any other cut of beef or pork. Some might call it a strip steak or fillet. But basically, it’s a cut of meat from the beef cattle’s sirloin section. 

Since the sirloin tip is tough to cook, you have to look out for the temperature not to dry it out. But even more important is letting it sit for about 15 minutes once it’s out of the oven. It allows juices to set, which makes your roast moist and tender. 

However, if you like a good crust on your meat, sear it before cooking for a perfect brown coating. And indeed, to complete your roast, you need an equally delicious sauce.

Step 1: 

Mix all the spices in a bowl and add one stick of melted butter to make a paste. Please give it a nice stir and set it aside. 

Step 2: 

Place your sirloin roast in a baking tray and tie it up with a butcher’s twine. Rub the spice paste on the pot roast evenly with your hands. 

Step 3: 

Allow the roast to sit at room temperature for about 6-8 hours. It helps to marinate your beef cut, so it cooks evenly. 

Step 4: 

In the meantime, combine all the sauce ingredients in a small sauce bowl, cover, and refrigerate. 

Step 5: 

Once the required time passes, preheat an oven to 350°F and cook your Sirloin Tip Roast for about 1-1 ½ hours.

Step 6 : 

Remove the roast from the oven and cut off the twine. Then let it sit for about 10-15 minutes before slicing it into slices and serving it with the sauce.

Ingredient Substitution

The sirloin tip roast has a unique taste when appropriately cooked. However, it is not the only thing that matters hear. The seasoning and sauce do the trick

Although Barefoot Contessa offers you her unique seasoning combination, you can experiment with adding your personal touch to the roast

1. Red Pepper Flakes 

Same as cayenne, red pepper flakes offer heat to your dish. However, you need to know that red pepper flakes are made of different red chiles that have been dehydrated and crushed. So you might need to reduce other peppers for this recipe. 

Generally, you can use 1-1.5 times the amount of red pepper flakes for cayenne. 

2. Basil 

You can use fresh or dried basil to substitute oregano for your perfect Sirloin Tip Roast. But remember that basil has a distinctively Italian vibe. If you’re not ready for this, increase the amount of thyme required for the seasoning and leave oregano out.

3. Ginger

Horseradish is not that common in one’s pantry. If you have none on hand, use ginger. It somehow mimics the horseradish but offers more floral and lemon notes. You won’t get the same flavors, but adding a pinch will do. 

What to Serve with Barefoot Contessa Sirloin Tip Roast 

Sirloin Tip Roast is a succulent dish you serve on special occasions since it is not very cheap. So you usually don’t want to mess up with the side when serving such a luxurious main dish.

Sweet Potato Casserole 

Unlike potatoes, their sweet cousin has a delightfully sweet flavor that provides a stunning contrast to the richness of the Sirloin Tip RoastSweet potato casserole is a decadent treat that works great on the side.

It is simply sweet potatoes, whole milk, and nutmeg. You won’t find any simpler and easier casserole that will fit wonderfully here.

Brussel Sprouts 

Brussels sprouts may not be the first option you resort to when planning your table for a special occasion. You have no idea how delicious these vegetables taste when appropriately cooked.

They need some honey, butter, and Dijon mustard. That’s a key to a phenomenal roast beef side.
