A sirloin spoon roast is a dish where a sirloin cut of beef has been cooked for so long that the dish is edible by spoon. This simply means that the beef was slow cooked for several hours and is more tender than a common pot roast.


The term "Sirloin Spoon Roast" is said to come from a 1950s menu item from the Longmeadow Community Market in Massachusettes, according to PracticallyEdible.com.

Time Frame

To make a sirloin spoon roast in the oven, bake the beef cut in the oven at around 162 degrees C for 15 to 30 minutes per pound of beef. The more well done you like your meat, the longer you should leave it in the oven to bake.The slow cooking style for the meat means it will take several hours to cook.

Fun Fact

The term sirloin refers to the cut of the meat you are purchasing. A sirloin cut is from the tender back ribs of a cow.


A sirloin spoon roast is cooked very similarly to a Southern style pot roast. Most Southern cooks refer to a spoon roast as a pot roast instead.


Served as a main course dish, a sirloin spoon roast pairs well with sides of potatoes, carrots, broccoli or other hardy vegetables of your choosing.
