Easy Breezy

Well here I am again in the middle of summer and feeling lazy.

I have to admit when it comes to cooking I am a cold weather gal.
I love making those cosy oven or stove top dishes that simmer for hours that warm you from nose to toes.
I get lazy in summer...throw a steak or burger on the grill...toss a salad...voila dinner is done. 
Well I decided that has to change and am challenging myself to be more creative in the warm months.
So I give you today a roast with a dry rub that can put together quickly and be put on the BBQ.
Anything goes on the side such as baked potatoes, beans or seasonal vegetable.

So here is to an easy breezy lazy summer!



Sirloin Dry Rub Roast

  • one 2 to 3 pound sirloin tip roast
  • 2 each tbsp chili powder and paprika
  • 1 tbsp cracked black pepper
  • 1 tsp each oregano and thyme
Combine all seasonings in a bowl. 
Rub the roast on all sides with the spice mixture.

Roast on the BBQ on medium heat until thermometer reaches desired doneness. Turn occasionally.
  Remove and let rest for 10 minutes.
Slice and serve.
Wine Suggestion: Malbec

Cheers!
