Basic Tri-Tip

Last weekend, when Hope came home with the Cheeseburger on a Stick, she brought this beautiful piece of beef home:

A beautiful tri-tip if I say so my self.  I was in a simple mood, so I seasoned all sides with salt, pepper, and granulated garlic.  I lit the grill and brought to high heat.  Then, I placed the tri-tip on direct heat for seven minutes a side.  Then, I pulled off of direct heat and let go for another seven minutes a side.  This brought the internal temp to 135 F.  Then, I brought inside, let rest for 10 minutes, then sliced.

Perfect rare to medium-rare.  We served with a nice baked potato.

Nice, simply seasoned beef, grilled to perfection with the ultimate grilled beef side dish.  What more can you ask for?

Thanks for stopping by,



  1. We love Tri-Tip for an easy dinner. Here on the West Coast it goes on sale fairly often. Sandwiches the next day are the bomb.
    That is one beautiful Tri-tip.

  2. Chiliebrown, I've seen the pic for the BBQ'd Trip-Tip sandwich. What is on one of those?
