Tuesday Tri-Tip

Did my first Tri Tip tonight. I followed Bruce and Helens advise. The flavor was great. The cut seemed to magnify the seasongs used. I had hoped it would have been a little more tender but the flavor made up for it. The entire cook time for the Tri Tip was about 35-40 min.



I took Puff's advise on the potatoes. I poured some Evoo over them and then poured some Onion soup mix over that. baked 45 min. they were very good as well.

Finney, I sliced against the grain but it still seemed like it should have been more tender. I seard for 5 min on each side over Lump and then cooked indirect to 140. Rested for 15 min. I noticed that there was no juice in the pan until I started slicing. That was a good thing.

Puff, the other side is a Green Giant Veggie medley.

I will watch for better marble in the next one.

Well I aint never bumped into one of them Tri Trip things but my left wing big brudder from sunny CA is always talking about cooking them on his gaseous grill. Apparently it some type of popular food item with the left coast yups. Not sure why it would be tough but suspect maybe it had something to do with the grade and by extension a lack of marbling as the other folks say. Was that a "select" version by any chance? Warden has been snaggin some CAB top sirloins from Kroger which have turned out to be some fine eating. Good flavor and real tender when cooked rapidly.

Does searing for 5 min on each side sound about right ?

Griff the way you described the cook sounds exactly the way I would have done it. I don't think that was the problem, it may of just been a bad piece of meat.

Plenty of threads on them. They cook just like a steak as far as flippin times go but then you have to cook indirect with a probe to monitor temps to your favorite shade of red.
