They also make glorious leftovers – and who doesn’t love that?
Which brings me to this Coffee and Spiced Rubbed Sirloin Roast recipe. Hands down one of the easiest beef dishes I’ve made – mix the rub, tie and sear the meat, slather it on and pop it in the oven. Dinner. Done.

Tips for making a Sirloin Roast:
- The rub can be made up to a week in advance. The meat can be tied and seasoned up to two days in advance.
- Remove the roast from the refrigerator an hour before you plan to cook it.
- Use a calibrated meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of the meat.
- Unlike most recipes, this one uses a relatively low temperature. This keeps the roast juicy and tender.
- Potatoes are a natural side dish – I love serving this roast with Easy Cheesy Potato Casserole or Potatoes Hashed in Cream.

Coffee and Spice Rubbed Sirloin Roast
- 2 Tablespoons finely ground coffee I used Starbucks Veranda blend

- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 4 Tablespoons canola or other neutral flavored oil

- Wrap and refrigerate overnight.
- Pre heat the oven to 225 degrees.
