Maybe you know it as a knuckle, a round tip roast, or a ball tip roast, but I think we can all agree that the sirloin tip roast is one of the best beef cuts ever. Ok, we are not talking taste wise because tenderloins win that battle, but the price is the sirloin tip roast’s forte! Affordable and relatively easy to make, sirloin tip roast cuts are the next best thing. Especially if you find a guide that will help you prepare the perfect sirloin tip roast recipe.
Easy Steps for the Best Sirloin Tip Roast Recipe
Even if you have never failed at preparing a sirloin tip roast like some of us (I am raising my hand J), these tips and tricks will surely come in handy. The things to remember are the following:
- Do things beforehand
This refers to the fact that for the best results, sirloin tip roast cuts need to be prepared the night before you are to roast them. This goes for salting it, marinating it and coating it with rubs. In order for the beef to soak in the salt, the herbs or the marinade it is crucial for the whole surface to get covered with whichever of these you opt for.
- Use a Meat Thermometer
The perfect sirloin tip roast recipe results in a tender, moist beef cut that is just begging for you to devour it. And it should also be medium rare! Why? Because a sirloin tip roast cut is best when carved into thin slices. Now, to achieve this you will need a meat thermometer. This is a one-time investment so you can easily go for the pricier variants with alarms intact, but you can also go for the cheaper ones that only show the meat’s temperature. (The optimal temperature of the meat should be 145-150 F).
Always sear the sirloin tip roast prior to placing it in a roasting pan. A 2-minute sear per side will ensure a meat with a nice crust and will make the pleasure of eating it even bigger!
A New Take on the Classic Sirloin Tip Roast
You can either serve the sirloin tip roast whole on a cutting board (provided that it is one of the pretty ones and not a regular one), or get a nice plate that is wide and long enough to fit this beef cut. As I have already mentioned the best way to serve this cut is carved into very thin slices. It goes hand in hand with side dishes like mashed potatoes or any other veggie inspired meal.
Now, this next way of serving sirloin tip roast might sound preposterous to some, but I am sure many of us will thank me later. Serve the slices on a hoagie roll, preferably a toasted one and you will get the best sandwich ever. Yup, now you can make the sirloin tip roast beforehand and place it in a sandwich bun for the best and tastiest meal. I have put this sandwich in my kid’s lunchboxes for the past few weeks now and I don’t have to worry about them being fed, or whether they are enjoying their lunch, because I am sure they are!
Hope you like this new sandwich sirloin tip roast recipe, you can make the sandwich with French fries, a sauce of your choice, cheese, pickles and what not. Feel free to experiment J!
