Seared 3 minutes a side at 600 degrees


Then up in the dome at 400 degrees till internal temp reached 128


Rested for 10 minutes and served it with roasted potatoes and fresh green beans. Quite tasty!

    What a coincidence!!! I have a 1.6 pound tri-tip thawing for tomorrow night's simple feast! The reason I love this cut is my wife likes her beef cooked medium and I like rare to medium rare. No other cut I know of allows these degrees of doneness in the same slab of "inexpensive meat"!
