3 1/2 lb top sirloin roast beef
6 slices bacon
¼ cup softened butter, clarified butter or other cooking fat
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp of Dijon or homemade mustard
1 tbsp good quality or homemade horseradish
3/4 cup red wine
1 3/4 cups homemade beef stock
Preheat your oven to 400 F.
In a small bowl, combine the butter or other cooking fat, garlic, mustard and horseradish. Mix until smooth.
Rub the roast all over with the mixture.
Lay the bacon pieces out flat so that they are slightly overlapping. Then place the roast on top of the bacon and wrap the pieces around the roast. If needed, use toothpicks to hold the bacon in place.
Place the roast in a roasting dish and cook at 400 F for 20 minutes.
Once the roast has been in for 20 minutes, add the wine and stock to the roasting dish. At the same time, adjust the heat to 350 F.
Roast for about 70 minutes, depending on how well-done you like your meat. 20 minutes per pound is a good rule of thumb for a medium rare to medium well roast.
