Silver Tip Roast Recipe with Fragrant Red Wine Sauce

silver tip roast for passover

Our recipe for a silver tip roast is slow cooked, easy and fool proof.  Perfect for a festive holiday meal.  When cooking with wine you don't want to use actual cooking wine, it's best to find a bottle of an affordable wine that you wouldn't mind drinking. Try a mixed case of budget-friendly kosher wines, you might even find a bargain wine you really like. 

For a change use 1 tablespoon Jamie Geller Hungarian Rub in place of salt, pepper, paprika, and onion powder.

  • Prep Time
  • 16Servings


  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 5 pound beef shoulder roast or silver tip
  • 6 cloves garlic crushed
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Crushed black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 1 cup ketchup


1. Place onions on the bottom of a roasting pan. Top with meat.

2. In a small bowl, combine garlic, oil, and spices together to form a paste. Rub the paste all over the meat. Let the meat stand at room temperature for a few hours to absorb the flavors.

3. Preheat oven to 375°F.

4. In a separate bowl, combine wine and ketchup. Pour over meat.

5. Insert oven probe into the thickest part of the meat and set the probe to 135°F. This will be rare. You can always cook it longer when reheating after slicing the meat.

6. Cook for 45 minutes to brown the meat, then lower it to 350°F. Cover meat and let cook until probe hits 135°F internally, about 1 hour 15 minutes.

7. Remove from oven and let cool. Slice thinly.

8. Serve roast with pan sauces, either over the roast or in a gravy boat.
