Roast Beef with Peppers

This moist, flavorful entree gets a bit of Italian flair from oregano and garlic. The sauteed peppers not only are a fresh-tasting accompaniment to the meat, they also look beautiful arranged around the sliced roast on a platter. —Jeanne Murray, Scottsbluff, Nebraska

    This is really good. Doesn't need to bake 3 hrs, though. I checked my 4 lb roast at 2 hrs and the meat thermometer said it was done. Very tasty.

    Actually, this will be my 2nd time. Lost the recipe and have been hunting for 1/2 an hour to find it again. The summary is what I remembered; that and the fact my husband was critical when he heard me read the recipe to him, but raved about it afterwards. This is absolutely delicious!! and inexpensive to make.
