I Eat Beef…here is a simple and delicious Tri-tip roast beef recipe that is divine! There’s not much to it but the key to success with this recipe is to cook the meat at high heat on the grill, preventing the meat from getting dried out. No one likes over-cooked meat. After it is cooked on high heat, the next key cooking element is to let it sit under foil for 10 minutes before you cut into it. You’ll come out with a nice juicy piece of meat! I try my best to eat only organic beef but I do need my meat and I’m not ashamed to admit it! I know lots of people these days don’t eat beef and I’ve cut it down to once every other week, but my body craves it and I listen to my body. I bought this organic tri-tip roast at Trader Joe’s, seasoned it with salt and pepper, and grilled it along with thin slices of white maui onions. Yum, yum! It’s that simple and that tasty! If you enjoy eating beef occasionally then you’ll love this Tri-tip roast beef recipe.
The tri-tip roast, or steak (also called a triangle roast), is the 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 pounds of meat that sits at the bottom of the sirloin. Not only does it have a rich flavor, but it also tends to be lower in fat than most other cuts. Of course, this means that it can dry out faster, but with a good marinade you really can’t go wrong. Good seasonings and marinades for tri-tip are those inspired by Southwestern or Asian flavors.
