Preparing a SIRLOIN TIP ROAST from Ontario’s acclaimed BLACKVIEW FARM has us believing in the superior taste of grass-fed beef.

I first heard of BLACKVIEW FARM about a year ago; my friend Adam had dined at a modish restaurant in Toronto and enjoyed a cut of beef that was superior in flavour and texture. I was instantly curious about the difference in responsibly raised, organic, grass-fed beef and was determined to find out more.

BLACKVIEW FARM is a sprawling 100-acre farm near Listowel, Ontario, known for their superior beef, pork and heritage poultry. Bill Parks and his wife Michelle are committed to providing responsibly raised livestock and poultry that are grass-fed. Their livestock and poultry have a field day – literally – when they graze in a different grassy field each and every day.

BLACKVIEW FARM offers their products for purchase, and since they deliver to the larger surrounding cities on a regular basis, they can deliver your order right to your door. That’s pretty sweet. Head HERE to learn more.

I ordered a SIRLOIN TIP ROAST and here are my tips on how to best prepare it:

ROOM TEMPERATURE – It’s very important to begin this recipe with a roast that has been brought to room temperature. Take your roast out of the fridge about an hour and a half before you prepare it for roasting. This ensures the roast will cook evenly.

SEASONING – Flavouring the roast by studding it with garlic and a rub of fresh herbs, salt and pepper adds such depth of flavour, every bite is a taste sensation. We used fresh thyme, rosemary and sage, but you can experiment with your favourite herbs to create the taste profile you like best.

ROAST TIME – The best way to achieve your desired doneness is to use a meat thermometer. See our AMAZON LINKS if you don’t have one. As a general rule: rare is 125°F / 52°C, medium rare 130°F / 57°C, medium 145°F / 63°C, well done 160°F / 71°C.

Finally, as delicious as this roast is, there’s also something to be said about serving it with the perfect accompaniments. We suggest our SPICED LIME GINGER CARROTS and our light and fluffy GARLIC MASHED POTATOES. One final suggestion – check out our 1 minute City Slicker video on how to prepare YORKSHIRE PUDDING.

A final thank you to BLACKVIEW FARMS for the superior roast used in the preparation of this post. Head HERE to learn more.

Instructions

Rub paste evenly over the outside of roast before placing it, fat side up, on a wire rack positioned in a roasting pan.
  3. Place roast in oven for 15 minutes, then reduce temperature to 325°F and cook to desired doneness using a meat thermometer.
