Fiesta Roast Beef
- COOK TIME
- 20 Min
What You'll Need:
1 (1-1/2- to 2-pound) package fully-cooked beef tri-tip roast
2 (8- to 8-1/4-ounce each) cans tropical fruit salad in light syrup
1 large orange
2 to 3 teaspoons spicy brown mustard
to 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
teaspoon black pepper
cup diced green bell pepper
What To Do:
- Remove beef tri-tip roast from package; place in microwave-safe dish. Transfer 3 to 4 tablespoons liquid from package to a small saucepan; set aside. Discard any remaining liquid or reserve for another use. Cover the roast and microwave on high 7 to 10 minutes, or until heated through. Let stand, covered, 5 minutes.
- Drain fruit salad, reserving 3 tablespoons of the syrup. Cut up any large pieces of fruit; set aside. Grate 1 teaspoon peel from orange; set aside. Cut orange in half. Squeeze juice from 1/2 orange; peel and chop orange sections from remaining half.
- In a medium bowl, combine reserved syrup, orange juice, mustard, orange peel, pepper sauce, salt, and black pepper; whisk until blended, then measure 1/4 cup of the mixture and add it to beef liquid in the saucepan. Add reserved fruit salad, chopped orange, and bell pepper to remaining orange juice mixture in bowl; mix well. Cover and refrigerate. Carve the roast across the grain into thin slices. Bring mixture in saucepan to a boil over high heat; remove from heat. Arrange beef and fruit relish side-by-side on a platter.
- Spoon warm sauce over the beef as desired. Garnish with orange slices, if desired.
