Delish! I used button mushrooms added parsley. It is really delish
Any problem letting the rub sit on the roast for 1-2 days (wrapped in refrigerator) before grilling?
I’ve made a roast out of a tri tip for years. I buy untrimmed, and trim myself , keeping a heavy fat top, then Heavily salt and pepper, 30 minutes at 500 degrees then drop to 350 until desired doneness. A beautiful and delicious roast in a liile over an hour- start to finish! Going to try this one- it sounds like a great variation!
I have found no problems finding tri tip at Kroger’s and H-E-B in Houston. I do not find it difficult to find. Can’t wait to try this!
Always buy this cut at Trader Joe’s in West Des Moines IA. Also, it’s the only TJ’s in the state.
A lot of folks find it difficult to find tri-tips other than in Califonia. However; the Cosco stores carry them, sometimes individually but more often in bags of about six. Great recipe but some might like to replace the garlic with shallots.
It’s actually hard to find in the midwest. Costco stopped selling them while I lived in the Chicago area. I had to buy at a butcher.
Thanks, John. Tri-tip can be hard to find when you are not on the West Coast, yes. Large, flat, lean steaks make a good substitute. Flank steak and London Broil are two examples. Reader CJ McD from Wisconsin suggests spoon roast, and I’m not even sure what that is!
My mouth is watering…..
I LOVE tri-tip, but it’s extremely difficult to find (if at all)in Wisconsin. A good substitute is a spoon roast. It’s also a very succulent cut of beef. Best on the grill.
The marinade sounds delicious, but tri-tip is hard to find here on the East Coast. I’ll have to try this with another cut of beef. Suggestions?
I’m in md .Definitely not sponsoring for props but the past 3 tri-tips I have gotten from lobels.com have been great. Some local places are iffy in getting the cut.Its try try again to where you go.
I am inspired to post a comment for two reasons; the first is to give you a heart-felt “muchisimas gracias” for your work on the blog. I not only enjoy it, I use your recipes frequently. I also appreciate the equipment sale links, and have, over the last 9 months or so, replaced most of my 32 year old pots with bargains you have shared.
Secondly, I want to let folks who don’t live in California know that the tri-tip cut can probably be found at your local Costco. It’s the only place I have found it here in Texas, and we love the cut. I marinate it differently – I use garlic, red wine, onion, and olive oil, then grill or broil. It is a flavorful cut no matter how it’s done.
Happy holidays to you and your family, Elise – and to all your readers. Happy cooking!
I have found tri tip steaks at Marc’s Marinated them in ” Veri Veri Teriyaki, Soy-Vay and Trader Mings Soyaki. I have never had a better, more tender steak
