help with the cuts of roast

We purchase an 1/8th of an organic cow this fall. It came with 4 huge roasts (next year definitely ask for them to be cut in half).

I don't know what to do with them, which are for pot roast, which would work for oven or bbq, slow cooker?

here they are....

sirloin tip
cross rib

you would think that growing up in beef country I would know this!!

    1. They all normally take slow cooking. And a good butcher will task what size roasts you prefer.

      1. You can roast the sirloin tip. My mother often used this cut when doing a roast beef. Here is a recipe from the Canadian Living website. I haven’t tried this it but this site/magazine is well known in Canada for its recipes.
