Ingredients & Cooking

Ingredients:

  • 1 beef Tri-Tip Roast (1-1/2 to 2 pounds)
  • 2 medium red bell peppers, cut into 1-1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1 cup uncooked quick-cooking barley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/3 cup lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 2 medium mangoes, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1/3 cup chopped green onions
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 4 large Boston lettuce leaves (optional)

Cooking:

  1. Heat oven to 425°F. Place bell peppers on metal baking sheet; spray with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.

  2. Press 1 teaspoon paprika evenly onto all surfaces of beef roast. Place roast on rack in shallow roasting pan. Do not add water or cover. Roast in 425°F oven 30 to 40 minutes for medium rare; 40 to 50 minutes for medium doneness. Roast bell peppers in oven with beef about 30 minutes or until tender. Set peppers aside to cool.

  3. Remove roast when instant-read thermometer registers 135°F for medium rare; 150°F for medium. Transfer roast to carving board; tent loosely with aluminum foil. Let stand 20-25 minutes. (Temperature will continue to rise about 10°F to reach 145°F for medium rare; 160°F for medium.)

  4. Meanwhile, cook barley according to package directions. Set aside to cool slightly.

    Cook's Tip: To quickly cool barley and prevent it from clumping, spread on metal baking sheet.
  5. Cut beef into 1/2 inch pieces; season with salt and black pepper. Whisk lime juice, oil and 1/2 teaspoon paprika in small bowl until blended. Toss with beef, barley, roasted peppers, mangoes, green onions and cilantro in large bowl. Serve in Boston lettuce leaves, if desired.
