Although this wouldn't be my favourite way to cook roast beef, it was still very good! I used a meat thermometer to cook a very small (1.5 lb) sirloin tip for hubby & myself - it took 1 1/2 hours for medium-rare. I served the beef with a carrot/turnip combo that I prepared according to Nana Lee's method in recipe #134316 and another English classic - Marie Alice's Roast Potatoes (#918740). I skipped the gravy & Yorkies this time - after all, it was a weeknite, not Sunday! Thanx Molly!
