As submitter of this recipe, I would like to make the following comments based on the reviews that I have read. Many of the reviews state that it is too salty; I admittedly love salt so the amount of salt may indeed be too much for some. I would point out that if you are using table salt to cut the amount of salt in 1/2. Many users also ask if this is good on other cuts of meat, I use it on all cuts of meat (beef and pork) especially roast. For poultry, I might suggest replacing the oregano with sage.

can you say "wash the beef OFF please?" once again i fall in the few--this was WAY too spicy. of course i used high quality paprika that is hot in itself. and i DID wash the beef rub off. 1 hour was also painfully short to cook. sorry--my mouth is burning and i feel a little unkind...

This is the First sirloin tip roast that I have made that turned out to excel in flavor and texture. I have tried many times before to make a tip roast with them all ending up to be tough and dry. Your recipe produced comments by all, that it tasted just like prime rib! It was tender and juicy and flavorful. It turned out excellent! The recipe is called herb, but it is more on the spicy side...not overwhelming though. I did follow the recipe to a T...however I put the spice rub on and let the meat come to room tempature before baking. After an hour of cooking, I checked the meat for internal tempature of 140 degrees (rare) and when it reached that temperature, I turned off the oven and allowed it to sit another 15 to 30 minutes in the oven to produce medium rare. Came out excellent!! Thank you very much for sharing this excellent recipe!

Very, very good. The meat turned out moist and tender. I cooked mine in the crockpot for 6 hours on low and 1 hour on high. The spices were wonderful.

This was truly delicious! I substituted fresh chopped garlic for the garlic powder and lowered the temp a bit. I had a 5 pound roast so I dropped the temp to 325 and cooked it for about an hour. (Until the temp reached 135), then I rested it while I made the gravy and mashed the potatoes. This roast produced one of the best gravies I've ever made. I cooked it on a rack in a shallow baking pan and put a can of beef broth and a couple of bay leaves underneath it. While the beef rested I strained the broth into a butter roux. (The broth had concentrated and it was a little salty so I added about 1/2 cup of water.) The resulting gravy was delicious. I'll definitely use this rub again. Thanks for a great recipe!

I used a 3 lb tri tip roast for the meat. Combined the ingredients and put the roast in a big baggie and put the rub all over it and let it marinate in the fridge for 4 hours. Cooked it on my grill using the indirect method for about 36 minutes. You have to let it rest for 10 minutes or so. But oh my god!!!! We all just LOVED it. The meat was so juicy and tender and so very very tasty!! If I could, I would have given this 10 stars!!! Served it with potato salad and fresh corn on the cob. SCRUMPTIOUS!!

very tasty! i needed to cook it less time, though... i like it medium rare. i followed the directions but it kinda got too well done. my parents used to cook a roast at 200 degrees, one hour per pound and it came out perfecto. i shall try this rub with their timing next time. I loved that I had all the ingredients to this rub! thanx

This is such a good combination of spices! I use it for more than just this particular recipe, too: One variation I enjoy, particularly, is to add a couple tablespoons of flour to the mixture, then I braise the meat shortly before putting it into the oven to cook; the "blackened" crust that forms on the roast is second only to the amazing gravy that comes from the drippings. My fiance and his brother will never be able to eat at home anymore because I've outdone their mom...
