Why This Recipe Works
When developing our Sunday-Best Garlic Roast Beef recipe, we wanted an attractive alternative to prime rib roast that was less expensive and faster to cook, without sacrificing flavor. We found top sirloin to be an inexpensive, well-marbled option that would yield a tender, juicy texture. Skipping a stovetop sear, we browned the roast in the oven at a high temperature and then reduced the oven temperature to cook the roast through without losing too much moisture. A three-pronged attack yielded true garlic roast beef: We studded the roast beef with toasted garlic, rubbed it with garlic salt, and coated it while it cooked with a garlic paste.
