And just like that, the holiday season is upon us. Like almost everything in 2020, this holiday season might look a little different for your family. I know it does for us. Our gathering will be smaller, split between two houses, and you guessed it, Mom will be serving up beef for dinner. While I guess that’s nothing new for my house, these 40 cloves of garlic beef roast is definitely new to our table. And so is the Sirloin Tip Roast. I’ll admit I was a little intimidated to cook a roast [with butcher’s twine too!], but with a little help from the website and resources, the 40 cloves of garlic beef roast came out perfect!
While you know I’m a huge fan of serving beef year-round, I’m definitely keeping beef on our table this holiday season as well. There’s something familiar and comforting about beef during the holidays. And I need all the comfort food I can get right now. I developed this recipe with beef’s biggest competition in mind [yeah chicken, I’m looking at you]. I grew up eating 40 cloves of garlic chicken, and figured beef could give the chicken a run for its money [and my taste buds].
One of the main reasons I love cooking with beef is that you really don’t need much more than the cut of beef itself. It’s flavorful enough with a little salt and pepper. Add some garlic [ok, 40 cloves of it] rosemary and thyme, now that’s just gravy. And a simple yet budget-friendly centerpiece for the holidays. I know we are all keeping an eye on the price point for presents and food right now, and this recipe certainly does not break the bank. While there are a variety of beef cuts to choose from, I chose Sirloin Tip Roast because of its affordability and leanness. A win-win for this budget and health-conscious Momma!
