Garlic and Rosemary Grill-Roasted Beef

I love learning proper techniques and tips to make my meals as good as they can be. And since we are entering the grilling season, I thought I would share a recipe with detailed instructions for Grill-Roasting. Grilling uses high heat for fast cooking/searing tender pieces of meat. Tender cuts tend to be more expensive. But by roasting on the grill, you can buy less expensive cuts of meat, and cook them at a lower temperature for longer period of time, to allow them to become more tender while cooking. Check out this recipe using a top sirloin roast on a charcoal or gas grill. – Eddie


  • 4 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh rosemary leaves
  • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
  • 1 top sirloin roast (3 to 4 pounds)
  • vegetable oil for cooking grate



  • Peel and mince 6 garlic cloves, you should have about 2 table spoons
  • Mince enough rosemary to yield 2 tablespoons.



  • Combine garlic, rosemary, 4 teaspoons kosher salt, and 1 tablespoon pepper in small bowl.
  • Sprinkle all sides of top sirloin roast evenly with salt mixture.
  • Wrap roast with plastic wrap.
  • Refrigerate roast for 18 to 24 hours. (If using gas grill, proceed to gas grill steps)



  • Open bottom grill vent fully.
  • Light large chimney starter half filled with charcoal (3 quarts, about 50 briquettes).
  • Allow to burn until coals are fully ignited and partially covered with thin layer of ash, about 15 minutes.
  • Arrange coals over one-third of grill.
  • Position cooking grate over coals.
  • Cover grill and heat grate until hot, about 5 minutes.
  • Scrape grate clean with grill brush.
  • Dip wad of paper towels in vegetable oil; holding wad with tongs, wipe cooking grate.



  • Turn all burners to high, close lid, and heat until hot, about 15 minutes.
  • Scrape grate clean with grill brush.
  • Dip wad of paper towels in vegetable oil; holding wad with tongs, wipe cooking grate.
  • Reduce primary burner to medium and turn off all other burner(s).



  • Place roast over hot part of grill and cook until well browned on all sides, about 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, punch fifteen 1/4-inch holes in center of 13 by 9-inch aluminum roasting pan in area roughly same size as roast.
  • Once browned, place beef in pan over holes.
  • Set pan with roast on grill over cool side.
  • Cover grill. (Open lid vent halfway and position vent over meat if using charcoal.)
  • Cook roast for 20 minutes, then rotate pan 180 degrees.
  • Continue roasting, opening lid as seldom as possible, until center of roast registers 125 degrees (for medium-rare) or 130 degrees (for medium), 20 to 40 minutes.



  • Transfer meat to wire rack set on rimmed baking sheet.
  • Tent loosely with foil and let rest for 20 minutes.
  • Transfer meat to carving board and cut across grain into thin slices. Serve immediately.
