Smashing Good Beef Tri-Tip

I love Beef. So many great cuts … so little time. I also love my mortar & pestle. Very soothing to smash the daylights out of some ingredients. Good for stress relief. 

We had this tri-tip for dinner tonight = super easy . I used my traeger grill tonight with Oak pellets. I like doing tri-tips on charcoal and gas grills as well however it’s cold out there and I opted for an easier route tonight.

If you are not familiar with Tri-Tip you really should be. It is an excellent cut of beef. Just make sure to cut across the grain and never over cook it.

Smashing Good Beef Tri-Tip

2 beef tri-tip (2-3 lbs each)

 

Marinade

¼ cup apple cider vinegar

½ cup canola oil

2 tablespoons minced garlic

1 tablespoon coarsely ground black pepper

1 tablespoon kosher salt

1 tablespoon smoked paprika

2 teaspoons granulated onion

2 teaspoons dried parsley

2 teaspoons dried chives

1 teaspoon ground chipotle powder

1 teaspoon mild chili powder

 

Assemble all of the marinade ingredients into a small food processor or mortar and pestle. Pulse or grind until fully mixed. Place your tri-tips in a ziploc bag and cover with marinade. Remove as much air as possible from bag and place in the fridge for a minimum of 4 hours or overnight.

Preheat grill to medium high heat.  (I set my Traeger  to 275F)

Smoke until the internal temperature is 130F  (on a pellet grill this can be anywhere from 1 – 1.5 hours)

Remove from grill and rest tented with foil for 10 minutes.

Slice the beef thinly across the grain and serve with residual juices.
