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

"I had to substitute the tri tip for a rump roast since my local grocery store didn't carry tri tip and it was still quite tender and delicious!! Wish I had more left over."

"I have made this recipe 2 times. Once for Christmas for the family and once for "just us". The second time I put the meat on the grill and the veggies in a foil pack on the grill. It was just about as good as in the oven. It is pricey but sometimes tri tip is on sale and that is when I buy it."
