Sirloin Tip Roast

Phillip and I both grew up with Moms that liked to cook a roast for Sunday dinner.  I, too, liked to cook a roast for our Sunday meal.  I learned like they did that you could put a roast in the oven on low heat before you left to go to church and when you returned your lunch was done!  My favorite roast to cook is a Sirloin Tip Roast.  Our butcher, Ed Harmon at the Cottonwood IGA, always has good cuts of meat for us to choose from.  Now I know that a lot of folks like to put a roast in a crock pot, add potatoes and carrots, and let it cook all day.  I've tried that, too.  However, to me the potatoes and carrots absorb the taste of the meat and you cannot distinguish their flavors.  I prefer to cook my roast in the oven on low heat for several hours.  The roast will be so tender that a knife is not necessary and the flavor will be delicious, especially if you've got creamed potatoes to eat with it!  This is the way that my mother-in-law cooked her roast and I did not go wrong following her example.

Sirloin Tip Roast
1 pkg. Lipton Onion Soup Mix

Place roast in a baking dish that has been sprayed with Pam Spray.  Open pkg of onion soup mix and sprinkle over roast.  Cover with aluminum foil.  Bake at 300 degrees for 3 1/2 hours.

The pan drippings and onion soup mix will make a gravy.
