Get Ready

Servings: Makes 12 to 16 servings

Cook Time: 170 minutes

Prep Time: 15 minutes


1 whole beef boneless top sirloin (3 to 4 pounds)
2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaf (seasoning mixture)
1 tablespoon coarse grind black pepper (seasoning mixture)
3 whole garlic clove, minced (seasoning mixture)
2 tablespoons butter (relish mixture)
2 cups finely chopped onions (relish mixture)
1 cupdried fig, chopped (relish mixture)
1/2 cup water (relish mixture)
1/4 cup white wine vinegar (relish mixture)


1. Preheat oven to 325degreesF. Combine Seasoning ingredients; reserve 2 teaspoons for Sauce. Press remaining seasoning evenly onto all surfaces of beef roast.
2. Place roast, fat-side up, on rack in shallow roasting pan. Insert ovenproof meat thermometer so tip is centered in thickest part of beef, not resting in fat. Do not add water or cover. Roast in 325degreesF oven 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 hours for medium rare; 1-3/4 to 2-1/4 hours for medium doneness.
3. Meanwhile, prepare Relish. Melt butter in large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat; add onions and reserved 2 teaspoons seasoning. Cook 20 to 25 minutes or until onions are tender and lightly browned. Add figs, water and vinegar; bring to a simmer. Simmer 4 to 5 minutes or until liquid has reduced and thickened. Remove from heat; season with salt, as desired. Keep warm.
4. Remove roast when meat thermometer registers 135degreesF for medium rare; 150degreesF for medium. Transfer roast to carving board; tent loosely with aluminum foil. Let stand 10 to 15 minutes. (Temperature will continue to rise about 10degreesF to reach 145degreesF for medium rare; 160degreesF for medium.)
5. Carve roast into slices; season with salt and pepper, as desired. Serve with Relish
Cook's Tip: One beef top loin petite roast (3 to 4 pounds) may be substituted for top sirloin petite roast. Roast in 325degreesF oven 1 to 1-1/4 hours for medium rare; 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 hours for medium doneness.
