We also love this venison pot roast recipe and delicious beef dip in the crock pot. There are seriously so many different ways to use a large cut of beef.

We recently ordered a box of organic, locally sourced meat from Tru Local and this roast came with our order. It was one of the best cuts of beef we’ve had in a long time!

We also received short ribs and chicken thighs in the box so we had an entire week of recipe development. We made the most delicious Huli Huli Chicken, Korean Short Ribs and Hawaiian Short Ribs that you simply must check out!

Roast Beef Recipe Ingredients

Ingredients:

*sirloin tip is one of the best cuts of beef to use for a tender pot roast.

3. Cut each garlic clove into thirds. Cut slits into the beef about one inch deep and several inches apart. Push the garlic gloves into each slit.

Inserting the garlic directly into the meat is a technique that my dad taught me. It helps to infuse the beef with garlic flavour.

4. Cover the entire roast in a dry rub. Be sure to coat the top, bottom and side of the roast.

5. Insert an oven-safe thermometer fully into the roast beef.

This is the best way to determine when the roast is done.

6. Place the roast into the pan with a tablespoon of olive oil or cup of beef stock (if desired).

7. Cook at 300 degrees F for about 75 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees F.

8. Transfer meat to a cutting board and allow it to rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing and serving.

Leftover roast may be kept in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week. We like to cook a large roast whenever possible so that we have enough to use for leftovers the next day.

Tips and tricks:

  • Ribeye roast, rump roast, boneless chuck roast and rib roast are tougher cuts of meat but may be used for this recipe.
  • Red wine or worcestershire sauce may be used in the bottom of the pan and combined with the meat juices to make a gravy later.
  • Our homemade beef rub is easy to make with a combination of spices like black pepper and garlic powder but you can use any rub of your choosing.
  • To make the most tender roast beef, cook at a low temperature for a longer period of time.

We are suckers for a great sauce paired with a mouth watering roast. I think that this comes from one of our favorite dishes, the tomahawk steak, served at the Modest Butcher. They always serve it with a chimichurri and roasted garlic aioli that is to die for!

This Alabama white sauce and homemade garlic aioli would be great choices for serving with this easy recipe.
