Tri Tip Success

Have never had a Tri Tip until becoming an egghead. Nice piece of meat. Here's how I did it. Started with some salt and pepper and brought to room temperature:

Started a sear on the cast iron grate at 675°:

90 Seconds per side twice for nice cross-sear:

Pulled and foiled for 20 minutes and got the veggies going:

Once the veggies were done, I roasted the tip with a sauce of BBQ, Italian dressing, hot sauce, worcestershire, and lemon juice. 400° and re-sauced every 10 minutes:

Pulled at 132 degrees, foiled for 5 minutes, and....

    I love tri-tip. Best tasting economical cut there is. Yours looks like it turned out very nice. I egged a couple tri-tip steaks for lunch today with a little bit of evo and DP's Raising the Steaks rub. Very tasty!
  • Nice job! Looks great..

    I've seen several tri-tips on here and they look good. AFAIK, I've never had one before, haha! What cut is it? What's it taste most like? Is it called tri-tip in the stores? I'm game to try anything once or twice, especially if it involves meat :)

    I believe it's the bottom part of the sirloin. If you do a search on the forum, you'll see that generally you can find it at Costco, where I did, or from a good butcher.
  • Very nice. When I do my Tri-Tip I pull it at 135. Slice thin lay in a Cast Iron pan and cover with Pepper Jack Cheese and put back in the egg for about 10-12 more min. Serve it over a toasted roll. MMMMMMMM.

    glousteau,

    I am originally from Cincinnati. I get back there occasionally to visit and grill tri-tips for my family. I always get them at Costco and I believe they go for about $5.99 lb. as of last summer. They read tri-tip roast on the package. As far as the taste, they have their own. All I can say is try it. They are very moist and flavorful.
