This tender and juicy roast looks beautiful when I serve it to guests. It also makes the house smell wonderful as it cooks. I usually serve it with warm French bread and a salad topped with buttermilk dressing. —Brenda Hlivyak, La Center, Washington
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tablespoon dried rosemary, crushed
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 beef tri-tip roast (2 to 3 pounds)
- 4-1/2 teaspoons olive oil
- 12 small red potatoes, quartered
- 2 medium sweet yellow peppers, cut into 1-inch pieces
- 1 large sweet onion, cut into 1-inch slices
- Combine the garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper; set aside 4 teaspoons. Rub the remaining mixture over roast; place in a greased shallow roasting pan.
- In a small bowl, whisk reserved herb mixture with oil. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the potatoes, yellow peppers and onion; add oil mixture. Seal bag and toss to coat. Arrange vegetables around roast.
- Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 30-60 minutes or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°).
- Transfer roast and peppers to a warm serving platter. Let stand for 10-15 minutes before slicing. Meanwhile, return potatoes and onion to the oven; bake 10 minutes longer or until potatoes are tender. Yield: 6 servings.
