This simple tri tip recipe is a great appetizer – the taste combination of delicious bruschetta and the steak is incredible.
Ingredients (makes 10-12 servings)
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons salted butter, softened
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 large tomatoes, diced
5 fresh basil leaves, sliced lengthwise
1 baguette, fresh
1 pound tri tip roast
1) Season tri tip with your preferred dry rub. Grill or BBQ tri tip; after removing from the grill, let the steak rest for 10 minutes.
2) While your tri tip is cooking, make the bruschetta. Slice the tomatoes and place in a bowl. Add in the olive oil and garlic. Add salt and pepper to prefect it to your tastes.
3) While your tri tip is resting, preheat the broiler. Slice the baguette into 1 inch slices; butter and add garlic salt. Place butter-side up on a baking sheet. Broil, watching the bread carefully, until butter is melted and the edges of the bread are just browned – no more than 2 to 3 minutes.
4) Slice tri tip thinly against the grain. On each piece of toasted bread, put a spoonful of the bruschetta and add two slices of tri tip. Place a 1/2 basil leaf on the top and serve.
