A sirloin tip roast is marinated in dry red wine before it is rubbed with seasonings and then roasted to perfection. It's a basic roast beef recipe, and it is an excellent choice to serve with mashed potatoes.

This oven roast is made with a little red wine and a variety of dried herbs and seasonings.

If you like gravy with your roast beef, see the easy optional gravy below the recipe instructions.


  • 1 sirloin tip roast (about 3 pounds)
  • 1/2 cup dry red wine
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried leaf thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. About 2 hours before roasting, combine the roast and red wine in a food storage bag; refrigerate.

  3. Preheat oven to 350 F.

  4. Combine remaining ingredients in a small bowl about 10 minutes before roasting time.

  5. Take the roast out of the wine marinade and place it on a rack in baking pan. Rub all over with the herb and seasoning mixture.

  6. Roast in preheated oven for about 1 to 1 1/2 hours, or until roast is about 135 F on a meat thermometer for medium-rare.

  3. Add to the drippings and whisk to blend.

  4. Add 2 cups of low sodium beef broth or unsalted stock.

  5. Cook, stirring until thickened.
