Author: Cooking Chat Prep Time: 10 mins Cook Time: 90 mins Total Time: 1 hour 40 mins Yield: 9 servings 1x Category: Main Method: roasting Cuisine: American Scale 1x 2x 3x Ingredients 1 medium sirloin roast (ours was about 4 lbs) 1 tbsp garlic powder 1 tbsp salt ½ tbsp dried rosemary 2 tbsp chopped horseradish 1 cup whipping cream ½ tsp mustard (Dijon or basic yellow mustard) Instructions Make the rub by combining the garlic powder, salt and rosemary in a bowl. Spread the rub over the beef, patting it into the meat. Let the beef sit at room temperature for 10 minutes to let the flavors absorb. Place the spoon roast into a roasting pan, and then put it into a cold oven. Turn the oven up to 450 degrees, cook for 10 minutes after it has reached 450. Lower the heat to 325 degrees, and cook at that temperature 20 minutes for every pound of meat. Check for doneness toward the end of the projected cooking time. When almost done cooking to your taste, remove from oven. Tent loosely with foil to let it rest. Make the cream by whipping the cream together with the horseradish and mustard. Slice the beef thinly, then serve with the cream and a nice Cabernet Sauvignon! Notes Amazon affiliate link included to one option for prepared horseradish. You can use fresh horseradish root following this method from Simply Recipes. The temperature given here is based on a conventional oven setting. I haven’t tested with this recipe, but generally dropping the given temperature by 25 degrees when converting from conventional to convection is a good rule of thumb.
