Burgundy Pepper Spoon Roast

The Burgundy Pepper Spoon Roast comes from the sirloin and is marinated in our burgundy pepper marinade that flavors and tenderizes. The result is the leanness of a sirloin but so tender you can cut it with a spoon. Many say it tastes like prime rib but without the prime rib price! Best grilled or baked yet it can be prepared in a crock pot with all your favorite vegetables. Each Spoon Roast, which can be 2 to 4 pounds, is tumbled in our marinade for 30 minutes and then dusted with a sprinkling of vegetable pepper medley topical seasoning. This cut is also available plain.
