The Best Cuts of Beef for a Roast
Choosing the right cut of beef is essential for the best results. Generally, cuts from the hindquarters of the cow are ideal for roasting. The sirloin roast, sirloin tip roast, chuck roast, rump roast, and round tip roast are great choices. However, if you’re looking for a more economical option, the tougher cuts of meat like knuckle roast, or blade roast can be tenderized with slow cooking.
Prepping the Sirloin Tip Roast
Before cooking, it’s important to prepare the beef sirloin tip roast. Take it out of the refrigerator and let it sit at room temperature for a little bit, about 30 minutes. This helps it cook evenly. Then, season the beef roast with garlic powder, salt, and black pepper. Add a little bit of olive oil and rub it all over the roast. This step will help the seasoning stick to the meat.
Cooking the Sirloin Tip Roast in a Slow Cooker
The slow cooker is an excellent tool for making tender and juicy beef roasts. Place the seasoned beef sirloin tip roast in the crock pot, and add in a cup of beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, and apple juice. These liquids will make the meat more flavorful and tender. Then, add in chopped red potatoes and green beans. Cover the slow cooker with a lid and cook on low heat for 6-8 hours or until the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees F. You can check the internal temperature of the meat using a meat thermometer. Once it’s cooked, remove the roast from the crock pot and let it rest for 10-15 minutes before slicing it. Pour the cooking liquid into a gravy boat to serve as au jus.
Cooking the Sirloin Tip Roast in the Oven
If you don’t have a slow cooker, you can still make a delicious sirloin tip roast in the oven. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place the seasoned beef roast in a cast iron pot or a baking dish. Add in beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, and red wine vinegar. Cover the pot with aluminum foil or a lid, and roast for 3-4 hours or until the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees F. Add chopped vegetables such as red potatoes, onions, and carrots during the last hour of cooking. Once the beef roast is cooked, let it rest for 10-15 minutes before slicing. Serve with the cooking liquid as au jus.
Instant Pot Sirloin Tip Roast
If you’re looking for a faster way to cook your sirloin tip roast, try the Instant Pot. Season the beef roast as usual and place it in the Instant Pot. Add in beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, and apple juice. Cook on high pressure for 60-70 minutes, depending on the size of your roast. Let the pressure release naturally for 15 minutes, then manually release the remaining pressure. Remove the roast from the Instant Pot and let it rest for 10-15 minutes before slicing. Serve with the cooking liquid as au jus.
Serving and Storing Leftovers
Once you’ve cooked your fall-apart sirloin tip roast, it’s time to serve it up! You can slice it thinly against the grain for maximum tenderness. Serve it with the cooked vegetables and au jus on the side. This recipe makes a complete meal, but you can also serve it with your favorite sides like mashed potatoes, roasted carrots, or a green salad.
If you have any leftovers, you can store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. You can also freeze the cooked beef roast for up to 3 months. To reheat, simply place the beef in the microwave or oven until warmed through.
Cooking a beef sirloin tip roast doesn’t have to be complicated. With this guide, you can easily make a fall-apart tender and flavorful roast that your whole family will love. Whether you choose to cook it in a slow cooker, oven, or Instant Pot, the key is to use simple ingredients, low heat, and the right cuts of beef.
