I have a 6lb. sirloin tip roast that I want to make for dinner tomorrow. We are expecting about 4 guests and I want it to be moist and tender. Any tips you can give me will be appreciated. Which would be better -- oven or crockpot?
I would do it in the oven, keep it covered and baste it. Long & slow...probably 325º a couple hours anyway. I'm trying to visualize how big a 6lb roast is! I always go by eye, LOL!

I found this recipe here some time ago. I will NEVER cook a sirloin tip roast any other way from now on! This is fantastic....my DH and sons rave about it. I have also used a rump roast and a top round roast. If you want it done a bit more just leave it in a bit longer. This was posted by TRIA. Give it a try. I brush on worcestershire sauce,sprinkle with a mixture of Lawrys,garlic powder and onion powder and go from there. Here is her entire post with recipe.........
This works great for rib roasts, sirloin, etc. and I've never had one fail!! Started doing this about 35 or so years ago and it's never failed me.
I can't speak for anyone elses recipe - here is mine.
Sorloin tip roast - brown it on all sides in a little bit of olive oil. flavored with some garlic cloves. Put it in crock pot - cover with lots of onions. Add one can of beef broth. A bay leaf. Cook all day on low. Nothing better.
I just finished dinner with lazyme's recipe. Will always cook a sirloin tip roast with this method! It was fablulous.
bump to find later.
I just cooked a roast the other day and it was delicious!!I I sprinkled Amazing Taste for beef over it and pierced it and then sprinkled McCormick pot roast seasoning over it and cooked in crock pot on low for 8 to 10 hours.Shelia
Thank you lazy me - the method that I originally posted for the eye of round works for almost any roast. The eye of round is not the most tender of roasts but the sirloin tip (and others) work really great. So easy - and makes a great presentation. I used to serve this all the time for parties - just put the meat out with lots of good bread or little homemade rolls and let people slice the meat self service style - make sure you put out a good knife and serving fork. Of course - it makes for a "fancier" presentation if you have a "carver" in a chef's hat! LOL
Oh lazy me I hope that recipe will work on a 11 or 12 sirloin tip roast if so can you send it to me
what does DH stand for??? deranged husband maybe?

WOW!!! Just cooked a 4.3 lb sirloin tip roast using lazyme/Tria's method and it was simply AMAZING! Just put some Montreal Steak Seasoning, onion powder, and a little olive oil on top at followed the rest of instructions. Our reward was a juicy, tasty, med-rare roast. The best I have ever made! Thank You!
OK, So today I tried Lazy Me's recipe but altered it a bit. (on a sirloin tip roast) I tend to like my beef medium and saw someone else said hers turned out medium-rare with the 10 minutes per pound instructions.
Now for me if its going to lean in either direction of medium I'd rather lean more towards well done.
So I decided to try the same exact directions but with 12 minutes per pound on both the 500 and oven off temps.
Outcome: Medium Well, a tiny bit dry but otherwise quite tasty
Next time I'm going to try 11 minutes per pound and hopefully get a perfect medium.
I thought this might help any others that like beef a bit more done...or even well done. No judgement here. :)
I have also heard of one like this for Turkey. But I think it was left in the oven overnight and was supposed to be the most moist bird that they had ever eaten.
