Lemon Pepper Sirloin Tip Roast for #SundaySupper #RoastPerfect

Lemon Pepper Sirloin Tip Roast is an easy to make recipe with only 4 ingredients. Delight your family with this peppery citrusy beef roast.

Once upon a time I cooked a perfect roast. It was a magnificent standing rib roast. I made it for Christmas dinner. I stood there and gazed upon its beauty. I sliced it to find it was exactly medium-rare. Then my dad took over slicing. He said he liked his cooked more so I handed him the grill pan. I walked out of the kitchen and came back to find my dad had cooked all the slices to medium or more. I look back and laugh. It’s a treasured memory. I had him in mind when I made this Lemon Pepper Sirloin Tip Roast. Why? Because it combines several memories of him and beef.

The holidays would not be the same without a roast. A whole tenderloin on New Year’s Eve is a real treat (along with king crab legs). Standing rib roast calls out for Christmas. Yet the budget may not allow for those cuts. The good news is lesser expensive roasts can be just as flavorful thanks to Certified Angus Beef® brand beef and their app.

Sirloin tip is one of my family’s favorites. It is the one cut my parents would most often use. It is why I selected it to be a roast to make during the holidays. My dad enjoyed lemon pepper on his steaks. This past summer I created Grilled Lemon Pepper Steak Salad in memory of him. I thought the same flavor on a roast would be quite nice. It actually is mighty nice.

How to make sure your roast will be perfect? The very first thing to start with is premium beef. You want the best for your family. Where to find it? All you have to do is use the Certified Angus Beef® brand locator to find both retail stores and restaurants. I’m glad to know I can get it at two of my favorite places to shop; Dekalb Farmers Market and Buford Highway Farmers Market.

The next step is flavoring. A rub is one of the easiest ways to add flavor to a roast. The chefs at Certified Angus Beef® brand’s headquarters truly inspired me to create my own. After learning more about rubs from them, I mixed up a batch to make Sriracha Herb Roast. Then came lemon pepper and who knows what will be next. It’s only a matter of what flavors I’m craving.

After flavoring comes roasting. This is where you may have questions. How long to roast? What temperature? Getting answers is super easy. All you have to do is refer to Certified Angus Beef® brand’s Roast Perfect app. Use it to help select your roast, find a recipe for it, and then let the timer tell you how long to sear, roast, and rest it.
