Rosemary-Garlic Roast Beef Recipe

Rosemary-Garlic Roast Beef Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 40 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

  • 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.
