I made this roast today for my husband, by SPECIAL REQUEST. He just insisted on having a SIRLOIN TIP ROAST DESPITE THE FACT THAT IT WAS NOT ON SALE.

I like to base my meal ideas on sale items, but he insisted,& this was my creation for the roast.

He wanted a dark rich gravy, & wanted it cooked in Irish Stout Beer. I added veggies, & wrapped it in Bacon to add flavor & moisture to the roast as it cooked.

I cooked it for 3 1/2 hours, & the flavors were very tasty & comforting. I served Sour Cream Mashed Potatoes, Sweet Peas, along with carrots, & dinner Rolls. Great tasty meal idea.

sirloin tip roast (about 4 pounds)
6 slice
smoked bacon
3/4-1 c
all purpose flour
2 Tbsp
chopped dried chive (divided)
2 Tbsp
granulated garlic powder
1 Tbsp
each paprika,black pepper, steak seasoning, & onion powder
2 tsp
lemon pepper (no salt added) & cumin powder
4 stick
celery (cut into 2 inch pieces)
3 medium
onions peeled, halved and quartered
bay leaves, dried
mini sweet peppers, seeded & cut into halves
1/3 c
worcestershire sauce
2 bottle
irish stout beer (12 ounces each)
4-6 large
carrots,washed peeled & cut into 2 inch pieces


1Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. I used this 5 quart dutch oven Roaster for the Roast.
2Spray inside walls of dutch oven with non stick cooking spray. Wash peel & quarter onions and place in bottom of dutch oven.
3Add Celery pieces and bay leaves.
4Combine spices in a small bowl.
5Sprinkle spices liberally over entire roast.
6Dust generously with flour, then place Roast on bed of onions and celery in dutch oven.
7Now arrange sweet peppers around roast in dutch oven around perimeter of the roaster.
8Now arrange slices of bacon over the top of the roast in a spiral fasion, tucking the ends of the bacon underneath the roast. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon chopped Chive over top of roast & Add the remaining flour into the dutch oven along the sides of the roaster.
9Pour both bottles of beer carefully along outer perimeter of the roast, being careful not to let it foam over the top of the Roaster.
10Add worchestershire sauce, & cover with lid, and place in preheated 300 degree F. oven and allow to cook for 3 1/2 hours or until roast is tender.
11Wash and peel carrots, cut into desired serving size pieces and cook till tender & drain. After roast has cooked add drained carrots to gravy before serving.
12Allow Roast to rest at least 10 to 15 minutes before carving. Carve and serve with gravy and vegetables. Wrapping the roast in slices of bacon, prevents the roast from drying out, as Sirloin Tip tends to be very lean with little fat, it also add extra flavor.
