Some deliciously insulating and flavorful seasoned butter and a handy instant-read thermometer should be all you need to make a delicious and hopefully entirely edible top sirloin roast.

Despite how good that might sound, some kind of flavorful spice mix is necessary; any of the pre-made mixes at the supermarket work great here, such as garlic and herb or even just plain Italian seasoning.

Tips and Tricks for CookingTop Sirloin and Sirloin Tip Roast
Almost any sirloin roast is basically guaranteed to end up overcooked and tough unless you use some really good temperature control.
First of all, the amount of time your sirloin roast will spend in the oven is going to entirely depend on its weight. You want to cook for about 20 minutes per pound of the meat, but that is also going to depend on the quality of your oven and how well it evenly distributes its heat.
The idea behind setting the oven really hot and then reducing it to 325 is that it lets the outside brown really nicely without burning, and then the remaining lower temperature can help the meat to more gently come up to the proper internal temperature.
The final temperature you want for your roast is going to entirely depend on what kind of meat you want.
For a nice rare top sirloin roast, aim for the final temperature to be around 120 Fahrenheit. For a more tender medium-rare, shoot for about 130 Fahrenheit.
Of course, you want to be pulling it from the oven and resting it a full 10 degrees before your target temperature. Don’t worry about accidentally undercooking the meat when you pull it out early; the carryover heat will continue to cook the roast as it sits, resulting in perfectly cooked beef every time.
