Angie's Italian Beef

3 to 4 pounds sirloin tip roast
2 cups water
5  beef bouillon cubes
1 teaspoon dried {oregano}
2 teaspoons dried {basil}
1/2 teaspoon crushed {red pepper}
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon celery salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 package dry onion soup mix
 rolls, or mashed potatoes
Mix all dry ingredients together to make a "rub." Pat rub on top of roast. Place roast in pan and pour water, along with the bouillon cubes, around the sides. Be careful not to pour water over roast - you don't want to disturb the rub.

Cover and bake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes per pound. Let cool. Slice thin,return meat to liquid and simmer. Serve with rolls, to make hot beef sandwiches, or serve with mashed potatoes on the side.
