Why this recipe works

  • It’s affordable. The beef sirloin tip comes from the front of the rear leg, so it’s used for movement. This makes it lean and less sought-after than other cuts (like a Denver steak), which is perfect for you since this recipe takes this cut of beef and roasts it until it’s perfectly succulent.
  • It’s simple yet sophisticated. Roasted sirloin tip pairs perfectly with any side dish you can think of, from sweet potato fries to cauliflower mashed potatoes, making it a versatile choice for whatever you’re in the mood for. 
  • Little prep time. Like skirt steak or picanha steak, A quick rub is all you need before roasting. The oven does the heavy lifting, so you barely have to lift a finger. 

What we love most about this recipe is that for how quick and easy it is; like a beef wellington or Philly cheesesteak casserole, the results are sophisticated and make even a normal Tuesday feel like a special occasion. 

Ingredients needed

The ingredients to make this sirloin tip roast recipe are super simple since it’s the meat that really shines. Here’s everything you’ll need for this. 

  • Beef sirloin top roast.
  • Olive oil. To add essential fat and help develop a caramelized crust.
  • Salt and pepper. For flavor
  • Fresh parsley. For a pop of color and fresh flavor.
  • Spices. I use dried thyme and dried rosemary for this recipe. 
  • Garlic. Fresh cloves are best.

How to make sirloin tip roast

I’ve included step-by-step photos below to make this recipe easy to follow at home. For the full printable recipe instructions and ingredient quantities, scroll to the recipe card at the bottom of this post.

Step 1- Prep the sirloin tip. Begin by preheating the oven to 180°C (350°F). Then, rub the roast with olive oil, making sure to get in all the nooks and crannies.

Step 2- Mix the spice ingredients. In a small bowl, whisk the salt, pepper, fresh parsley, minced garlic, dried thyme, and dried rosemary. Rub this seasoning mix all over the beef, again making sure to get the entire surface of the roast.

Step 3- Cook the beef. Place the seasoned roast in either a roasting pan or baking dish and roast for 45-50 minutes. For medium rare, you’ll want to look for an internal temperature of 135°F. Keep in mind there will be some carryover heat which will continue to cook the roast, so pull it out as soon as the thickest part of the roast reaches 135°F otherwise, you risk overcooking.

Step 4- Rest, then serve. Once the roast has reached your desired level of doneness, remove it from the oven and loosely cover the roast in foil. This helps to preserve the heat and seal in those juices. After letting the roast rest for 10-15 minutes, you can carve it and serve. Be sure to carve against the grain to help break up those tough muscle fibers and make each bite tender.

Tips to make the best recipe

  • Pat the roast dry with paper towels before adding the oil. This will help the roast develop a more crispy and browned surface. 
  • Sear the roast in the roasting pan after covering it with your oil and spices to lightly brown the roast. While this is optional, it will also help make for a more caramelized outside. 
  • Resting is essential since this will help the roast stay juicy once it’s cut. So don’t skip this part!
  • Like London broil, brush with pan juices before serving.

Flavor variations

The best part about this recipe is that it’s kept simple, so you can easily customize it to suit your taste buds. Here are some ideas:

Swap the spices. Play around with any combination of fresh or dried herbs and spices. Paprika, onion powder, and dried oregano are all great options.

Cook with pan-roasted veggies. Toss chopped carrots and potatoes in a little oil and add them to your roasting pan. By the time the roast is done, you’ll also have an easy side dish. 

Use a marinade. This easy 3 ingredient marinade is perfect for adding more juicy and savory flavor, or you can use any marinade of your choice. Keep in mind you’ll still want to coat the sirloin tip in oil since it needs that additional fat. 

Storage instructions

To store: Once the roast cools, transfer leftovers to an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 4 days. 

To reheat: Transfer leftovers to a baking dish and heat, uncovered, at 250°F, until the roast has fully warmed through and the internal temperature of the thickest part reaches 120°F. Microwaving will also work, though that’s less preferred as it tends to dry out the roast. 

To freeze: Placed cooled roast in an airtight container or freezer-safe bag and freeze for up to 3 months.

    1. Hi William- I only cover it once it is cooked to let it rest. If you have a super powerful oven that typically browns foods on top, I’d suggest covering it after 25 minutes 🙂

    So easy to make and really tasty. The meat has tons of flavor and is very tender. This cut of beef was new to me and I am happy to add it to my rotation.

    Absolutely love this recipe.
    Delicious combination of herbs for flavor. Cooking and resting time allows for juicy tender meat.
    Perfect for the carnivore eating plan.

    Thank you!

    I’m an occasional cook. I didn’t want to go out to eat so my plan was to cook a pot roast. I saw this beautiful piece of meat at Raley’s. I followed this recipe. I forgot to get fresh parsley but used dried parsley instead other than that I followed the recipe. It took an hour to get 135 temp and let it rest for 15 minutes. All my sides were frozen from Trader Joe’s. It turned out great. Thank you for this recipe! Great for a novice cook.

    Thanks for the recipe! I followed all the steps one by one and my family loved it. What a success. We had roast beef for Thanksgiving since we didn’t want turkey and after that we had French dip sandwiches with the left overs.
