Beef round sirlion roast

Has anyone ever bought a "Beef Round Sirlion Tip Roast" at Sam's? It is about 5 pds. I was wondering if it is a tender piece of meat and how did you cook it? It is $3.85 a pound. Thanks for your help.

You can make this a roast. It's tender enough to use a dry heat cooking method.

The "sirloin" part is extremely deceptive.

Think "round" when considering recipes, not "sirloin". It tends to come out pretty similar to a rump roast.

I agree that oven roasting is your best bet.

Have you bought it yet? I'd pass personally, that's pretty high, especially for a 5-pound chunk. I don't buy beef round or chuck until it gets below $2.99/lb.

No,I haven't bought it yet. I thought I would see if anyone else tried it first. Thanks for your information. I would hate to spend that much money and get a tough piece of meat.
