Tri Tip in the Mini

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

I have been busy. A good kind of busy. I have taken up golf again, I won some contests in Toastmasters and had to travel for that and the garden is starting up. It was time to reward myself.

 

The supermarket had some tri tip chunks so I decided to do them in the mini. Nothing fancy, just some good beef.

 

I started by applying some Cabela's Whiskey Steak Seasoning.

 

 

I fired the mini up with a full chimney of Kingsford and used a couple of chunks of bourbon whiskey barrell. I let it fire up to 450 F and tossed the steaks on.

 

 

When the internal  temperature got to 90 F (about 12 minutes) I flipped the steaks and put the lid back on.

 

 

It took about 10 minutes more for the IT to get to 130 F which is as rare as She Who Must Be Obeyed will allow.

 

I took them off and covered them with foil for about 10 minutes.

 

 

We served them with potato and green salads.

 

 

 

The Verdict

 

Cooking a tri tip this way doesn't char the outside very much but getting the mini hot gives it a nice exterior. The pink throughout and the tender juicy texture is great.

 

This is one of my favourite meals. Nothing fancy, just  good.

great looking tri tips. Also good luck on your golfing I gave it up when I retired from Air Force 20 twenty years ago, but in my case I never was any good just enjoyed getting out.

My brother and niece gave me a selection of Cabelas seasonings. I would say the Whiskey Steak is my favourite. It doesn't overpower the beef but does compliment it.

Thanks. We never get full flat irons or whole tri tips here so we have to make do.

Thanks, Dave. I have improved from the Hall of Fame of terrible golfers and been promoted to the museum of terrible golfers. However, I am having fun.
