Tri-Tip Steaks. "Let's Try This Again"

Found some Tri-Tip steaks on sale so I thought Id give it another shot. This time I remembered to use my Jaccard meat tenderizer on them, what a difference. Much better results from last time. I covered the steaks evoo and Wolfe Bold and grilled them on the gasser as I was crunched for time. I also tossed on some sweet potatoes. When the sweet potatoes were done, I added a nice big scoop of brown sugar and a hunk of butter, man I love sweet potatoes. Over all the dinner turned out good, simple, and fast. Not shown is the green salad. Guess Im having for a Tri-Tip sandwich for lunch today.

When shopping for tri tip steaks - make sure they are cut across the grain. This makes them more tender. of if you like, look for a tri tip roasts and cut them yourself to make sure they cut across the grain. In the market I run, our top 3 grilling steaks (other than the norm ribeyes, strips, Tbones, etc) are as follows: 1) chuck eye steaks 2) flat iron steaks 3) tri tip steaks. We sell them between $3.99-$4.49 lb - sell them all day long

Actually, most markets leave the tri tip on the top sirloins and put them out as top sirloin steaks. AT least, we remove the tri tip before we cut our top sirloins

Looks great Toby!
I'm surprised you had to use the Jaccard to tenderize

That looks great! We have been grilling sweet potatoes this summer a little. I like them smoked and then butter and a little brown sugar.
