Ok I'm not affiliated with Trader Joes but ever since the moved into my area I can't get enough. No it's not new to me I had them when I lived in CA years ago and loved them. Well a few months ago I had both a Tri tip at Costco and reversed seared it, came out awesome and I was determined to do it again someday. Well Costco is 20 miles from my house and I don't have a membership anymore.
TJ,s came to my neighborhood about a month ago and I was combing the place yesterday and came across the Santa Maria Tri Tip. I was a little leery about the marinade and all the sodium and crap in it my wife will complain about, but hey if a few minutes of ####### I think I will survive.
She didn't even notice the package and said nothing score one for me. I did a reverse sear and pulled it at about 130 (I like rare to med rare).
Was pretty awesome but next time I'm going with no marinade and doing DP Cow Lick I think.
