Entrees - Phase 1 - Boneless Beef Sirloin with Rosemary and Garlic

02-11-2009, 05:12 PM
3 lbs boneless lean beef sirloin roast
1/4 cup fresh chopped rosemary
2 Tbsp chopped garlic
3 tablespoons cup Pure Olive Oil
Salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

1. Place meat on rack in roasting pan. Combine rosemary, garlic, and oil in small bowl; rub on meat, covering well. Let marinade in fridge for at least 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

(I do not have a roasting pan or rack so I seared the meat on the stovetop in an oven safe pan on all 4 sides for 2 minutes per side, then put into a 350 degree oven)

2. Sear on center rack of oven 15 min; reduce heat to 350 degrees.

3. Roast meat about 20 min/lb until desired doneness. Check internal temp by inserting thermometer halfway into thickest part of meat. I left a thermometer in the meat and cooked to 136 degrees which was medium.

4. Transfer meat to clean platter; let rest 15 min. "Resting" allows juices to distribute evenly and remain in the meat, not all over the plate!

The recipe also calls for a gravy that I omitted.

I also trimmed some of the exterior fat from this meat and looked for the leanest piece possible.
