It has been a while...did some tri-tip this weekend.

This weekend I made tri-tip, corn on the cob and a special dessert I have been wanting to try (more about that later). I was going to make my own marinade but then I saw this at the store and it had the same basic ingredient list so I gave it a try. I added salt and garlic pepper right before tossing on the grill. I did these indirectly (not directly over the coals). And because they were already sliced tri-tip they didn't take long to cook. I seared them off a touch at the end over the coals and then let them rest for about 10 minutes.




That was some really good tri-tip I must say. For a prepared sauce, it was very good with tri-tip.

And for something NOT on the grill but I had fun making....

I also made a desert...chocolate brownie torte with white chocolate mouse and caramelized bananas. Yes that sounds rich, and it was but it was soooooo good.

First I melted bittersweet and 90% cocoa chocolate with some butter to make the brownie. Mixed that in with eggs, flour and vanilla to make the brownie batter. Baked it for about 15 minutes and set aside to cool. Meanwhile I beat some egg whites, whipping cream and melted white chocolate in a pan with whipping cream. Mixed them all together and poured the mouse on top of the brownie. Set it in the fridge overnight to cool and solidify.




The next day I sliced some bananas, tossed with sugar and lemon juice and broiled them on a sheet pan to caramelize (about 3 minutes). When they were cooled off, I put them on top of the mouse and drizzled chocolate sauce (melted bittersweet with cream and a simple syrup) on top to serve.



This dessert is a bit of work but definitely worth it. This was my first time making something like this or using these techniques so I had to redo the sauce a couple times to get it right.

Hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend.

I also stocked up on charcoal this weekend...Lowes had a good deal. 30 some bags of charcoal out to be enough right?



Happy Labor Day weekend to everyone!
