Versatility of the Ninja Foodi for Sirloin Tip Roast
No matter what brand of pressure cooker you have at home, whether it’s a Crockpot Express or a Ninja Foodi, this recipe is adaptable. The Ninja Foodi, in particular, offers the advantage of air crisping at the end. You can achieve both high pressure cooking and a beautifully browned exterior in the same pot. It’s a versatile tool that makes this recipe a breeze.
A Perfect One-Pot Meal with Leftover Potential
Not only does this sirloin tip roast make a fantastic one-pot meal, but it also yields great leftovers. You can enjoy the roast as is or get creative with different serving options. We’ve experimented with various cooking methods for this cut, and we’ll share the quickest and most satisfying one with you.
Selecting and Preparing the Sirloin Tip Roast
The sirloin tip roast comes in different shapes and sizes, often wrapped with butchers twine. You can cook it as is or remove the twine beforehand. Removing the twine from the roast at the beginning allows it to effortlessly fall apart when cooked. If you prefer a tender and easily pulled-apart roast, removing the twine is the way to go.
The same principle applies when cooking a sirloin tip roast in a slow cooker. By removing the twine, you ensure that the roast breaks down and becomes tender, making it easier to pull apart.
The Perfect Dry Rub for Pressure Cooker Sirloin Tip Roast
Here’s a sweet and savory dry rub recipe that you can use for your sirloin tip roast. Feel free to double the recipe if you prefer a thicker coating or want some additional rub for broiling at the end.
- 1 tbsp of roasted garlic
- A sprinkle of brown sugar
- A pinch of sea salt
You can customize this recipe by adding your favorite combination of spices. However, the measurements provided above are perfect for a simple yet flavorful dry rub. If you want to add a spicy kick, consider adding 1/2 tsp of dry Sriracha or red pepper flakes. Chili powder is also an option, although not the preferred choice for this particular recipe.
Making Your Instant Pot Sirloin Tip Roast
When using a freshly butchered or defrosted piece of sirloin tip roast, you can follow these steps to create a delicious meal:
If your roast is still firm, you can sauté the outsides first with a little bit of olive oil. Add salt and pepper and sear until browned. Then turn off the heat, add a small amount of water, and deglaze the pot by scraping the brown bits off the bottom with a wooden spoon.
Whisk together your dry rub ingredients and coat the entire surface of the roast.
Place a trivet into your Instant Pot and add 1.5 cups of water or beef broth underneath.
Set the seasoned roast on top of the trivet, close the lid, and seal the steam valve.
Cook on high pressure for 50 minutes, followed by a 10-minute natural release. Afterward, perform a quick release to release the remaining steam.
Carefully lift out the roast and slice it to your desired thickness.
If you want to make gravy from the drippings, remove the trivet and turn the pot to sauté mode. In a small cup, combine 4 tbsp of the hot liquid from the pot with 1 tbsp of cornstarch, whisk until smooth, and pour it into the pot. Continue whisking until the gravy thickens, then turn off the heat.
For a delicious crust on the outside of the roast, transfer it to a foil-lined baking sheet and place it under the broiler for 2-3 minutes until nicely browned.
Cooking Time and Options
To prepare this sirloin tip roast, set aside approximately one hour. This includes the time it takes for the Instant Pot to come to pressure. If you decide to broil the roast at the end and make Instant Pot gravy, the total cooking time will be around one hour and twenty minutes.
If you prefer to cook the roast in an oven, you can use the following temperature guide:
- Roast at 450°F for 15 minutes.
- Reduce the heat to 300°F and continue roasting until the internal temperature reaches your desired doneness:
- 135°F for medium-rare
- 145°F for medium
These temperatures will ensure juicy and perfectly cooked sirloin tip roast. The cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of the roast and your preferred level of doneness.
For those with a Traeger smoker, we highly recommend trying smoked sirloin tip roast. It results in a tender roast with a flavorful crust on the outside.
Enhance the Flavor with an Amped-Up BBQ Sauce
For an extra burst of flavor, whisk together this irresistible BBQ sauce and pour it over the sliced roast before serving. You can adjust the spiciness according to your preference or use your favorite bottled BBQ sauce. To make the homemade BBQ sauce, simply whisk together the following ingredients in a small bowl:
- ½ cup of BBQ sauce
- 1 tbsp dried roasted garlic
- 1 tsp salt
Slicing the Beef Sirloin Tip
To ensure tender slices, a very sharp knife is essential when cutting the beef sirloin tip. Once the roast has cooked and rested for 30 minutes, place it on a cutting board. Look at the top to identify the small white strands running from one end to the other. Slice perpendicular to these strands, creating 1/4 inch thick pieces to serve.
Leftover Roast Beef Ideas
If you happen to have any leftover roast beef, you can store it for later use and enjoy it in various ways. To maintain its flavor and texture, store the unsliced meat in a flat vacuum-sealed freezer bag. When you’re ready to reheat, slice the roast to your desired thickness.
For a simple reheating method, place the sliced roast in a pan with a few tablespoons of sauce or broth. Cover it with a lid to retain moisture and add flavor. This method ensures that the roast stays moist and delicious the next day.
Another fantastic option is to slice the leftover roast into thin strips, coat them with teriyaki sauce, and air fry them for 4 minutes at 400°F. This results in flavorful and crispy beef strips that can be enjoyed on their own or added to a variety of dishes. Additionally, you can explore different leftover roast beef recipes, such as casseroles, to bring back moisture and elevate the flavor.
Remember, with the Instant Pot, you can easily create the perfect sirloin tip roast that will have your taste buds dancing with delight. So grab your pressure cooker, some quality ingredients, and get ready to savor a mouthwatering meal.
