It should be noted that although large, tender cuts of beef such as the sirloin or rib taste great roasted, other varieties of beef that tend to be a lower grade make fantastic roast candidates. These varieties of beef include rump, eye of round and sirloin tip.
Preparing a roast is quite painless. You can place it in a roaster in your oven or for those that truly want an excellent roast, place your roast on wire rack with the fat of the roast (if there is any) resting on the top, and a shallow pan an inch or so below to catch any juices that fall.
Cooking times will vary by size of the roast and your preference on cooking (rare, medium or well done). It is important to use a thermometer to make sure your roast is completely cooked in the center. You can save much time and make sure your roast is yummy with this easy to use accessory. For a rare roast, the temperature should be about 125 degrees F. For a medium roast you should shoot for 140 degrees F and for a well done, anything greater than 155 degrees F will do.
The majority of roasts are cooked with low to medium heat at about 300 to 325 degrees F. For a 5 pound roast cooked at 300 degrees, expect it to cook for at least 90 to 105 minutes. Below you will find a couple of great beef roast recipes.
5 lb Rump Roast (remove layer of fat if desired)

If your rump roast has been refrigerated or frozen, let it thaw and set at room temperature for at least 2 hours. Place rump roast on wire rack with a pan covered with aluminum foil right beneath it about an inch or so. Cook for about 90 to 110 minutes at about 300 degrees. Use a thermometer and the temperature listing above to determine how well you like your beef cooked. About 30 minutes before cooking is complete, pour 1 package of French onion soup mix contents on the meat. Yields about 4 servings.
For Home fries, slice the fries into thick home style segments. To a frying pan add olive oil and place potatoes slices in the hot oil. Yields about 4 servings.
1 stick butter for use on garlic bread
Let your roast thaw out and season to taste with garlic, pepper and salt or any of your favorite spices. Roast your sirloin tip in the oven at about 325 degrees for about 35 to 45 minutes, once complete slice in moderately thin strips setting them over sliced garlic bread toast points. This recipe makes about 4 servings.
