Tri-Tip Roast

Discussion in 'Beef' started by kenafein, Apr 29, 2015.

  1. I cooked some tri-tip over the weekend.  I smoked them on the Traeger Jr at 180 degrees until they hit 125.  I then started up my Weber Genesis and let it preheat for 20 minutes and seared the roasts.  This was a trial run for my new maverick probe, and I think it did alright.  It's quite nice to have the remote temperature monitoring and the probes are much better built than my taylors. 

    I served the roast with arugula salad with honey mustard vinaigrette(w/ a little anchovy paste), and sliced apples.

    Looks tasty!
  5. Thanks, guys.  Tri-Tip is a go to when I want a quick and easy meal for guests, or just whenever it's on sale.  These were choice roasts, from Costco, but I don't think they were any better than the selects I get at Stater Bros.  They did pre-trim the fat though(a bit more than I would have), so there was some value added.

    The Tri-Tip looks perfect! And isn't anchovie paste great? Good in salad dressings, and I like a little in my pasta sauce! Great job, thanks for posting.
  9. It comes from the bottom sirloin.  It's a great chunk of meat.  Whole, it is a roast, but it is also cut into steaks.  It used to be a bargain cut, but it's caught on and it's now a bit pricier.  Though, with even chuck reaching almost $5/lb, beef is just too expensive overall.
    Thanks.  Anchovy paste is the secret weapon.  I put it in my sauce, too.  It's a great way to add that savory flavor.  I also started using Banyul's 6 year aged vinegar for my vinaigrettes.  I think it's worth the price.    
    Thank you.

    That looks incredible!  Perfectly cooked!!! Tri Tip is one of favorite kinds of beef these days.  Very hard to find around here unfortunately.

    kenafein  has you right on.  It is from the bottom sirloin butt.

    It used to be super cheap here in CA.

    Now I sometimes see it as high as a low grade ribeye?

    An excellent cut of meat when handled carefully.

    Good luck and good smoking.
