Santa Maria-Style Tri Tip Roast
My family raves about this oven-cooked tri tip roast; it's succulent, flavorful, and even my picky 5 year-old loves it! If you want to get a taste of southern California barbeque, this is it. Serve with fresh salsa, tortillas, rice, and beans. Enjoy!
If you can't find tri tip you can still use this approach with a well marbled sirloin steak, or London broil.
This can also be grilled at 250 degrees F (120 degrees C) to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C) or on a wood fire grill using red oak. It will take anywhere from 20 to 40 minutes this way.
You can substitute garlic powder for the granulated garlic, if desired. You can use pink Himalayan salt in place of the kosher salt, if desired. You can substitute chicken bouillon for the beef bouillon, if desired.
