Early Valentine\'s Meal

Morning All:

Since we have a church related event tomorrow evening, I decided to have our Valentine's Day dinner tonight. Stopped at Publix on the way home and was looking for a tri-tip. All they had in the meat cooler were "tri-tip steaks"...they had cut up a whole tri-tip into small steaks (why?). I asked the butcher if he had any whole ones, so he went in back and came out with a package with 3 in it.

I picked what looked like the best one...1.85#

Since I am doing this for Valentine's Day I tried to curl it into the shape of a heart...not perfect, but a nice try...

First it went into a zip-lock, then into the sink in the ODK with water temp about 130 (love that water heater out there)...

While I had two potatoes going in one of the large Eggs, I fired up the Mini (Olive) to get a little sear on the meat...

After about 2 minutes per side, I put the platesetter in (yes, still on Olive) and went indirect at about 450 for the rest of the time...about 6 minutes per side total...

Here we have the complete dinner...tri-tip, baked tators, salad, bread (done on the large with the tators) and vino...

Nice even rare to medium-rare on the piece EggHatter had on her plate...

Out of here for a while to finish the bottle of vino and see what else may need to be taken care of :whistle: :) :blush:

Happy Valentine's Day to everyone!

Have a GREAT day!

    Yeah, the little lady was pretty happy to walk in from work to this meal (by the way, it is Kathy, with a "K").
