This roast can be made in a kitchen oven or at an outdoor camp site in a dutch oven. The recipe will make a very tender roast with its own gravy. Leftovers may be kept in the gravy for several days.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 -4 lbs sirloin tip roast
  • 1 (1 1/4 ounce) package dry onion soup mix
  • 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup
  • 12 cup water or 12 cup beer


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees fahrenheit.
  2. Rub the dry soup mix on the meat, place in a covered roasting pan.
  3. Add mushroom soup and water or beer.
  4. Bake covered for 1 hour per pound of meat. If the cut of meat is very dense with little fat, remove one half hour before reaching total cooking time, slice and return to finish.
