Beef Sirloin Tip Roast

This meaty sirloin tip roast, served with a mouthwatering mushroom gravy, is a snap to assemble and pop in the oven. It is my husband's favorite. —Burgess Marshbanks, Buies Creek, North Carolina

    This roast with wonderful gravy is a great Sunday meal. Can bake will you are at church or an activity and goes well with mashed garlic potatoes.

    This was so good. The two things I did different was. I used fresh mushrooms baby portabella and cooked it for only 1hr 45 min came out perfect for the whole family. My husband likes well done and the rest rare. I also used Lipton onion soup mix with mushrooms not as salty. Will make again.

    Meat of any kind is done when it reaches temperature. Always use a probe thermometer that can go in the oven. and that you can set. they are well worth the expense. Ovens vary, so time is not really relevant.

    Meat came out like mush and I couldn't even cut it. Made a better pulled beef sandwich than a roast.

    I used a 2 1/4 pound roast and cooked it for about 2 1/2 hours. It was a little dry (some of the fats and water leaked out of the foil), but still tasted quite good.

    I just tried this for the first time, and I'm not an experienced cook. It turned out pretty good, but I think I would like it with beef broth as someone suggested. Some garlic might add some flavor too.

    Do you have ANY idea what happens to a 3 pound sirloin tip roast when you cook it for 2 1/2 hours?! Let alone 3??? That thing is so overdone it becomes the consistency of shoe leather. I am writing this review to make sure NOBODY follows the cooking time for this. It should be cooked for ONE HOUR.
