Do you want to get a quick and delicious meal together for your guests after you are done grilling your tri tip? These tri tip sliders are so tasty – your friends will worship at your feet!
The first step is to get your tri tip grilled to perfection – and we have a video for that! Once that is done, follow these instructions:
1) While the tri tip is resting, get your slider rolls prepped. Bring the grill to low heat. Cut the rolls in half and butter them up (if you want, put some garlic salt on the rolls for an extra kick). Place the rolls face down on the grill until browned, then remove from grill.
2) When you are ready to slice the tri tip, cut it as thin as possible. Make sure that you do not cut the slices too thick (no more than 1/2 inch thick).
3) With the rolls on plates, take 2-3 slices of tri tip and put it on there. Take a small handful of french fried onions (you know, those tasty strings that go on top of your grandma’s green bean casserole) and put those on top – it makes a great taste combination!
4) Serve it up with a side of BBQ sauce and/or mild horseradish and your favorite salad. Now THAT is a meal!
Some other quick notes: some people don’t like any sauce on their sliders and frankly, who could blame them? The meat is tasty enough. Providing sauce on the side is a great solution. And what about cheese? You could add a mild cheese (provolone or cheddar, for example) but I’ve found that cheese on a tri tip slider or sandwich never pushes it over the top.
The bottom line is – get creative around the grill! Find taste combinations that work when creating your sliders. We have another Tri Tip Slider recipe coming soon from a fellow BBQ fanatic, and many more recipes as well! We will see you around the grill!
