Trimlestown Roast Sirloin

Total Time

I found this on a web site for Irish recipes - it's a little different from the traditional roast beef and gravy.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Roast the sirloin for one hour at 350 degrees.
  2. Baste with whiskey and wine and cook another hour, basting frequently.
  3. Remove roast from oven, place on a serving dish, and cover with foil.
  4. While the roast is sitting, add water to the juices to make one pint of liquid.
  5. Bring to a simmer and add butter and flour; simmer 2-3 minutes.
  6. Slice the roast and serve with gravy.

Good recipe! I used top sirloin, as opposed sirloin tip, and Cdn Beef, as opposed Irish Beef, which would bring it down a lot, as Irish Beef is aged a lot longer. I used Jameson's Irish Whiskey, and when I do this again, will shift to Cognac, as mixing grain and grape sort of goes against my rules. Sadly, I used a local red wine, I'll know better next time and step that up to where it should have been. Gravy goes well with the meat, but less so with potato's (remember I "flawed" the basic recipe, so if you do it as puiblished you will certainly garner better results, and the meat results were very good.

I have made this roast time and again. It is so easy to make and my husband loves the taste.
