  • 1 beef sirloin tip roast (3 pounds)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup Italian-style panko bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons dried minced onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 325°. Place roast on a rack in a shallow roasting pan; sprinkle with salt. In a small bowl, mix remaining ingredients; press onto top and sides of roast.
  2. Roast until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium well, 145°), 1-3/4 to 2-1/4 hours. Remove roast from oven; tent with foil. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
