Type of Recipe: Entrée
Cut of Meat: Roasts
Intensely flavored sirloin tip roast using a homemade herb rub paste
2 tablespoons paprika
2 teaspoons kosher salt
3 garlic cloves, minced
¾ teaspoons fresh ground black pepper
¾ teaspoon onion powder
Pinch of ground cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons fresh oregano
2 teaspoons fresh thyme
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 (5 pound) sirloin tip roast
In a small bowl, mix the paprika, kosher salt, garlic, black pepper, onion powder, cayenne pepper, oregano, and thyme. Stir in the olive oil, and allow the mixture to sit about 15 minutes. The 15 min. rest time allows dried herbs to swell, the oil to absorb flavors, and helps make all very easily spreadable.
Cover roast with herb mixture and put in zip lock bag. Refrigerate overnight.
Take roast out of refrigerator on hour before roasting to bring to room temperature.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Place the roast in roasting pan.
Roast 1 hour in the preheated oven, or to a minimum internal temperature of 135 degrees F. Turn off heat , cover the meat and let it rest for 15 minutes in the oven and then 10 minutes out of the oven covered. The temperature of the meat will continue to rise as it rests. While it is resting make gravy. Slice and serve.
