This simple tri tip recipe is a “tapas” treat; it is easy to make and very tasty.
NOTE: Although the video above showed a smaller cut of tri tip, this menu calls for a 2 to 2 1/2 pound roast.
Ingredients for Dry Rub
6 tablespoons of chili powder
1 1/2 teaspoons of onion powder
2 tablespoons of ground cumin
1 1/2 teaspoons of garlic powder
1/4 teaspoons of dried thyme
3 teaspoons of dried basil
3/4 teaspoon of dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon of ground black pepper
Ingredients for Avocado Salsa
1 avocado, diced
2 small tomatoes, diced
1 tablespoon fresh cilantro
1/2 teaspoon garlic
1 teaspoon lime juice
1) Mix all of the dry rub seasonings together and rub on the tri tip roast about 60 minutes before grilling, covering well. Grill your roast until it has reached optimal temperature.
2) While the tri tip is cooking, make the avocado salsa. Simply dice the avocados and tomatoes, and chop the cilantro. Mix these and the remaining salsa ingredients together in a bowl. Serve on top of the steak.
