Hi Annalise: Your Tri Tip roast recipe looks fantastic. I am not familiar with the term Tri Tip. Is this a sirloin roast? Many Thanks.
Hi Melodie! A tri-tip roast is the cut of meat from which they cut individual ti-tip steaks. The roast can have many other names like California cut, bottom sirloin, Santa Maria cut, triangle cut, etc. Ask your butcher! Hope this helps. 🙂
I love your pan! I just ordered some enamelware a few weeks ago and can’t wait to get it in the mail. It’s from Rove and Swig… it looks just like what you got! And we are the same with Valentine’s day and it’s so much fun. We normally do a shrimp and pasta dinner (because my kids are nuts for shrimp) but we always like a million tea candles on the table, have sparkling drinks, and it’s just a lot of fun. Nothing fussy but I know they look forward to it! This meal looks wonderful. I’m with Melodie though. Any tips on buying tri-tip? Does Costco have it? Enjoy your road trip!
Yes! So fun to hear you guys have the same tradition! My pan is from Crow Canyon Home and I LOVE everything they do. Enamelware is where it’s at! I found a tri-tip roast from my local Kroger and I think they carry it regularly. I think it also goes by the name “Santa Maria” (it’s a popular cut in CA).
Hi! I just found this and was wondering: I assume this could be done with a tri tip destined for the charcoal grill?
Yes of course!
Do you have any recommendations if I don’t have the time to marinate it?
Hi Claire! I actually made this a few weeks ago and totally forgot about the marinating time. My tri-tip marinated for maybe 30 minutes tops and it was still delicious. Not as much flavor as it could have, but still great. I’d just try to marinate it as long as you can, maybe while you’re prepping other things?
This garlic and herb marinated in garlic and mushrooms is delicious and good for health. I will learn to make this dish. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
