Holiday Beef Roast

With Easter coming up I thought about this. Not everyone likes ham (yes I know that is not right, but I am one of them). I like this just about anytime really. It is a great Saturday or Sunday meal.
3/4 cup ketchup
3/4 cup apple juice
1/3 cup currant jelly
1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1 (3-pound) beef sirloin roast, 1 1/2 to 2 inches thick
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic pepper
  1. For the sauce, combine ketchup, liqueur, currant jelly and hot pepper sauce in a medium saucepan and mix well. Bring just to a boil, stirring continually to blend. Remove from heat. Cover to keep warm.
  2. For the beef, preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a roasting pan with nonstick cooking spray. Heat over high heat. Rub the surface of the beef with garlic pepper.
  3. Sear beef in hot pan, turning frequently, until browned on all sides. Roast in oven until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center of beef registers 145°F for medium-rare, about 1 hour. Turn off the oven.
  4. Remove the beef from the oven. Spoon the desired amount of sauce over the beef. Return the beef to the oven. Let stand with oven door closed for 10 minutes.
  5. Transfer the beef to a serving platter and slice into desired thickness. Reheat the remaining sauce, if necessary, and serve warm with the beef.
