  • 1 beef Sirloin Tip Roast (3 to 4 pounds)


    1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    4 to 5 cloves garlic, minced
    1 tablespoon grated lemon peel

  4. Increase oven temperature to 425°F. Roast vegetables additional 15 to 20 minutes or until tender. Carve roast; serve with vegetables. Season with salt as desired.
