I was browsing Fresh & Easy last night, and I found a ridiculiously good deal on a HUGE sirloin roast. It was normally $25 on sale for $8. Of course I bought it!

My only problem...what do I do with it? Is it like a regular roast, meaning toss it in the crockpot with some seasonings and veggies?

I love cooking and experimenting, but I don't know where to start!

Just found that you can never go wrong with that myself!

Chop an onion and 3 cloves of garlic, put in bottom of crockpot. Season roast with salt, pepper, and herbs, put in crockpot. Dump a bottle of BBQ sauce in crockpot. Cook on low for 10 hours.


You will come back and thank me for it.

If it has lots of marbling, use the crock pot. Any recipe with lots of garlic works for me

The roasts with little marbling don't do well in a crock pot even with lots of liquid. They get .... dry.

IMO

I'd do the Olde English traditional version - season, sear, then roast in the oven, and serve medium rare.... with yorkshire pudding and roast potatoes (roasted in goose fat) roast parsnips (and some steamed veg, ideally Brussels Sprouts) all served with a really good gravy. YUMMM

In a large cast iron dutch oven, place the meat in with a couple of tablespoons of oil. Season with onion powder, garlic powder, season salt - etc......Brown (sear) all sides of the roast very well, add 1 can french onion soup and one of beef broth (or any combination you like - just make sure the liquid comes up half way of the roast) - turn stove down just to simmer until tender. Takes a couple of hours sometimes - just keep checking. Remove when tender and make gravy out of the drippings. Depending on how big the roast is, sometimes I will turn it over when I think it is about half way done.

Default Beef Sirloin Tips Recipe

My parents for Christmas sent us a Omaha Steaks package. Included was beef sirloin tips. I have never had them and am looking for recipes. I don't have a crock pot.
I know I could google it but am looking for "tried and true" recipes. Recipes you use and love.
So many times I try online recipes even after reading reviews and they still don't work. Hey I depend you guys!
TIA

Use them in your favorite beef stroganoff recipe. With lots and lots of mushrooms!

Or Beef bourguignon (sp??) - if you like your beef with red wine.

Heck, you can even make fancy beef tacos out of them

There is NO WAY that I would put a sirloin roast in a crock pot, a method that is generally reserved for less tender cuts.

I would roast it at 350F until it has reached a 140F internal temperature. I would roast potatoes, carrots, celery and other root vegetables with the roast.

You can make gravy from the pan drippings.
