Give Dad A Break From The Grill With This BBQ Tri-Tip Recipe For Father’s Day

on June 16, 2012

Tomorrow is the big day so why not start a little early and let Dad have the day off from doing the grilling tonight?  This BBQ Tri-Tip recipe is not only easy to make but it is sure to be a crowd pleaser and will let Dad know how much you care by preparing such a delicious  meal!

BBQ Tri-Tip

2 to 2 1/2 lb beef tri-tip roast
1 tablespoon fresh ground black pepper
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon dried rosemary
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1/3 cup vegetable oil
4 cloves crushed garlic

Preparation:

1. Combine the black pepper, salt, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, rosemary, and cayenne in a small bowl. Rub on to all surfaces of the tri-tip. Cover and refrigerate for 3 hours. Remove and let sit out for 30 minutes at room temperature.

2. Add the Dijon, vinegar, vegetable oil, and crushed garlic to a jar with a lid and shake vigorously until emulsified.

3. Prepare your charcoal or gas barbecue grill. Place the tri-tip on the grill and brush with the oil and vinegar mixture. Turn every 3-4 minutes, basting generously each time. Grill for 25-30 minutes for medium-rare (internal temp of 135 degrees F.). The outside of the roast will get very dark and develop a charred crust, this is desired and one of the signature characteristics of this barbecue recipe.

4. Remove the tri-tip from the grill to a large platter. Let rest for 15 minutes before slicing in 1/4″ thick pieces across the grain. Serve as you would any barbecued beef, but in California this is often served with tortillas and salsa for a tex-mex twist!
