The sirloin roast is cut from the beef just in front of the hind legs. These cuts are not as tender as the loin and while a sirloin roast can be roasted in the oven, the roast will benefit from the braising method of cooking. Braising is also an excellent way to cook a frozen sirloin roast, as the added moisture will keep the roast from drying out as it cooks.

Things You'll Need

  • 5-quart Dutch oven
  • 3 cups water or beef broth
  • Seasonings
  • Meat thermometer
  • Roasting pan

Braising a Frozen Sirloin

Put the lid on the Dutch oven, put it on the stove top, turn the burner to high and bring the water or broth to a boil. Turn the heat down and simmer for approximately 40 minutes per pound.

Insert a meat thermometer into the thickest portions of the sirloin. A medium rare roast will be 145 degrees Fahrenheit on the thermometer, while a well done roast will be 160 degrees Fahrenheit or higher.
