Grilled Tri-tip Roast


Tri-tip is so flavorful and easy to prepare. All you need is a good rub and a hot grill to make this inexpensive cut of meat sizzle with flavor. Remember to cook the meat to medium rare for the best flavor.

Ingredients:

2-2.5 lb. Tri-tip of beef

2 tbsp. All purpose spice rub

Directions:

Let the tri-tip sit at room temperature for about 10 minutes then rub both sides with the all-purpose spice rub and let sit on the counter for another 20 minutes. Get your grill hot. Cook the tri-tip on the grill about 20 minutes each side. Use a meat thermometer to make sure you have cooked it to medium rare. Remove to a plate and let rest for 15 minutes. Slice thin and serve with Oven Roasted Potatoes and sautéed spinach.

All Purpose Spice Rub


All Purpose Spice Rub

There are tons of spice mixtures on the market and we have all tried many of them, some better than others.  The biggest issue I have with the store bought varieties is the high content of salt.  I really want to get the flavor of the herbs and spice not just the salt.  So I decided that the only way to get what I want is to mix my own blends.  The following is what I use on a variety of meats and chicken.  Give it a try and let us know what you think.

All Purpose Spice Rub

2 Tbsp.            Chili powder

2 Tbsp.            Paprika

1 Tbsp.            Turmeric

1 Tbsp.            Garlic powder

1 Tsp.              Sea salt

1 Tbsp.            Ground black pepper

Mix everything together and keep in a spice jar and use it on any meat or poultry to kick the flavor up a little.
