Sirloin Tip w/ Caramelized Onions

A tasty roast, that is good enough for company and great for the family.


1 tablespoon butter, softened
2 to 3 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
2 to 3 pound boneless sirloin tip or top round roast
2 large onions, cut into 1/4-inch thick rings
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 tablespoon sugar

In a small bowl, mix softened butter, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, oregano, dry mustard, salt and pepper into a paste. Rub paste onto all surfaces of the meat; set aside. Toss onion rings, melted butter and sugar together. Line a 15x10x1-inch pan with foil; mound seasoned onion rings in center and place roast on top. Cook in a non-preheated oven at 325°F for 30 to 35 minutes per pound (approximate cooking time: 1 to 1 1/2 hours) or until meat reaches desired doneness: 140°F for rare, 155°F for medium, 160°F for well done. Remove meat from oven; cover with foil. Let roast stand 15 minutes before carving; slice and serve with the onions.

Makes 6 to 8 servings.
