is a sirloin tip roast? Also called

beef tenderloin tip roast, or round-tipped roast, this is the portion that is cut from the cow’s hindquarters and is often a harder cut: the bigger the muscle, the harder the cut. This is not the same as a roasted sirloin.

A sirloin tip oven roast should be cooked slowly to soften the meat, to turn this cut of meat into a masterpiece! Meat is expensive, so I always use a thermometer for everything from perfect pork loin to baked ham and even roast chicken.


have an instant-read thermometer for things like steaks and chicken breasts and one I can leave in the oven for things like roasts or roast chicken. Using a thermometer ensures that your dishes come out perfectly cooked and that the meat is juicy and tender, never dry!

How to cook a sirloin tip


A high temperature at first creates a crust on this roast and seals the juices (so I don’t bother browning first). The lower temperature allows the roast to cook slowly to tender perfection. This roast is lean, so it is important that it is not overcooked (use a thermometer). It is also essential that you let the meat rest for at least 15 minutes (I usually do 20 min) before cutting it.

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F
  2. .

  3. Let a 4- or 5-pound roast sit at room temperature for a good hour
  4. .

  5. Rub the olive oil and seasonings over the meat and set aside
  6. .

  7. Cut a whole onion (yellow or white) into thick rings and place it at the bottom of a dark skillet. A cast iron pot or pan will do! This will be the foundation for the top roasted sirloin to rest while roasting AND onions provide flavor!
  8. After roasting, onions can be discarded (as they tend to darken quite a bit) or mixed with juices and turned into a delicious sauce or sauce. Yum!

How long to cook a roast sirloin tip

Slow and steady will elevate this harder cut of meat to a tasty and tender perfection! Start at 450°F for the first 15 minutes to seal the meat and then slowly roast at 300°F for 50-75 minutes. This can vary depending on how cold your roast is, the shape and/or size of the roast, etc.

Roasting should reach an internal temperature of 135°F for medium rare. Take your roast out of the oven about 5-7° before it is cooked, as it will continue to cook while resting under aluminum foil.

To do this well, I strongly suggest a thermometer. Remove and place the tent with aluminum foil and let it sit for at least 20 minutes before carving.
