Apple Cider Dijon Marinated Tip Roast - a moist and delicious beef roast recipe perfect for #SundaySupper or a holiday meal. #RoastPerfect | | gluten free

The holiday season is upon is, so #SundaySupper and Certified Angus Beef® brand want to inspire confidence in home cooks to prepare and serve the iconic beef roast as the centerpiece of a special family meal. With the help of the RoastPerfect app guiding me every step of the way, it was easy to make this moist and flavorful Apple Cider Dijon Marinated Tip Roast.

Disclosure statement: This post is sponsored by Certified Angus Beef in conjunction with a social media campaign through Sunday Supper LLC. All opinions are my own.

I may create recipes for a living, but there are still some ingredients and cooking techniques that intimidate me. My first few attempts at macarons have been epic failures. Pie crust, well, let’s just say that we aren’t friends. Honestly, I’ve never even made a Thanksgiving turkey. I’m the side dish girl. And when it comes to a beef roast, most likely I’m going to toss it in my slow cooker. Sure, that’s a tasty option, but is it really worthy of a special holiday meal, or better for busy weeknights?

While I am not part of the over 20% of people that have never cooked a roast, I am part of the 40% who cook less than one a year. After one not-so-successful attempt several years ago that ended up in overcooking a pretty pricey piece of meat, I’ve been afraid to try again.

This year, things will be different. I can guarantee that a beef roast will be gracing my Christmas Day table. Why? Because with the right cut of Certified Angus Beef® brand, a few tips from Chef Michael, and support along the way from the RoastPerfect app, I know that in less time than you’d expect, I can make this gorgeous roast…

And it’s not just gorgeous, this Apple Cider Dijon Marinated Tip Roast tastes amazing. In about five minutes, I stirred together a simple marinade and let my beef soak overnight to absorb all of those flavors. When it was roasting time, I just popped it in the oven. In less than an hour and a half, it was roasted, rested, sliced, and making its way into our mouths. And let me tell you, we had some happy mouths in my house that night.

While the cider and dijon mustard did infuse all kinds of autumn deliciousness, you can’t overlook that I did start with the most exceptional roast on the market. Certified Angus Beef® brand meets 10 exacting standards for quality, and the 1 in 4 Angus cattle that meet these standards produce the tastiest, most tender, and juiciest cuts of beef. Certified Angus Beef® brand has been supporting local farmers and ranchers for nearly 40 years, and is available around the world at only the best grocery stores and steakhouses. Make sure you find restaurants or grocers in your area that sell Certified Angus Beef® brand.

So now that I’ve told you how incredible it tastes, how am I going to help you make this or another roast for your holidays? I’ve already mentioned it, but now I’m going to introduce you to the Roast Perfect app, available for free in iTunes store (for iPhone and iPad) and Google Play (for Android).


The first thing I needed to do was figure out where to buy my Certified Angus Beef® brand roast, and the Roast Perfect app helped me locate the Giant Eagle in Frederick, MD. I wasn’t familiar with some of the roasts available in the store, but with the tools on the app, I was able to select something I’ve never tried before, a tip roast. This cut is perfect if you are looking for a leaner or more economical choice, perhaps for a smaller gathering or dinner party. I was also able to calculate how much I would need for my family.

After scouring the recipes, the Beer and Brown Sugar Marinated Roast caught my eye. I had to make it gluten free, so I decided to start with this recipe, but use a hard apple cider as the base of my marinade instead of beer. One of the coolest features of the app is the Roast Perfect timer – you just plug in your cut, weight, and desired degree of doneness, and it gives you a timer for how long to sear, roast, and rest in order to have the perfect roast (though don’t forget to check it with a meat thermometer, since all ovens vary).

I think my family will all agree that with this handy tool, I was definitely able to Roast Perfect!

  1. […] Because the beef is so flavorful, sometimes all you need is salt and pepper, but if you really want to impart even more flavor, you can blend up your own spice rub. Sure, there are plenty you can buy, but for the maximum freshness and flavor, grinding your spices with a mortar and pestle or spice grinder is the way to go. You can even use a wet rub, like this Cranberry Top Sirloin Roast. Other roasts, such as the Ball Tip Roast, lend itself to marinating, like my Apple Cider and Dijon Marinated Tip Roast. […]

    Sounds wonderful! It was so nice meeting you last weekend! I can’t wait to keep up with your blog! 🙂

  3. I love the combo of flavors from apple cider (or hard apple cider) and beef. It is a surprising mix that a lot of folks don’t think about. So I really want to try your recipe plus I get to play with the app again.
