We’re big fans of affordable cuts of beef and the tri-tip is a great one to try!  This marinade is by far one of our favorites, despite how simple it seems.  It adds a lot of flavor without taking over the taste of the steak.


For the Marinade:
-2 Tablespoons Dijon Mustard
-2 Tablespoons Steak Sauce
-2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
-1 Tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar
-1 Tablespoon Fresh Rosemary, finely chopped

-1 Tri-Tip Roast, about 2 lbs.
-Kosher Salt

Put the marinade ingredients in a baking pan or deep dish.  I always whisk it right in the container I’m marinading in (saves a dirty bowl!)

Add the tri-tip and be sure to get the marinade all over each side.

Refrigerate with the marinade on it for at least four hours.

Allow the steak to reach room temperature for 20-30 minutes out of the fridge.  Lightly season both sides with salt.

Seat over direct medium heat for about ten minutes, flipping halfway through.

Grill over indirect medium until temperature is 135F (medium rare.)  This will be an additional 20-25 minutes.

Let rest off the grill for five minutes before serving and enjoy!
