Roast Sirloin Beef with Rub

READY IN: 5hrs 30mins
Recipe by heather in Ont

This rub adds a wonderful flavor to the roast and the gravy is to die for. My kids aren't huge fans of roasts but they did like this one. I cooked a 5 lb roast and cut back on the garlic a bit, but left the amounts for the other ingredients the same. I cooked the roast at 500 degrees for 20 min and the remainder at 350 degrees for approx. 30 min. Serving size is dependant on how big of eaters you have...children vs adults

Adjusted the recipe for a 3lb sirloin tip roast. Followed exactly except I followed others roasting at 450 for 20 min and then 300 for about an hour. Turned out the BEST. Didnt have time to do the gravy but most certainly will next time. Thanks for the recipe!
