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

  1. Combine the garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper; set aside 4 teaspoons. Rub the remaining mixture over roast; place in a greased shallow roasting pan.
  2. 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.
  3. 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°).
  4. 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.

"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."
