A great way to quickly grill large cuts of tri-tip beef. You can even make it on a busy weeknight! I've also made this for BBQ parties. It's better than buying a bunch of steaks!

Good mix of flavors. It's nice using the soy for the "salt" in the dish instead of regular table salt, which adds no flavor of it's own. If you leave the roast whole and marinate the day before cook for 20 minutes per side on a med-low flame. Let rest for 10 minutes covered with foil and slice. Much better that way--more tender.

This marinade is incredible. I recently used this recipe and applied it to 20 lbs of tri tip for a company picnic (proportions increased accordingly). I also added some garlic salt and went a little heavier on the crushed garlic and black pepper to the mix and cut the meat down to 2-3 lb pieces, fat side removed, and let marinade overnight. I cooked this over a charcoal grill until between medium rare to medium and sliced up into approximately 4 inch strips. This was a major hit at the picnic. A side note the remaining marinande was applied to the meat throughout the cooking process for additional seasoning. Read More

Great for camping. Just freeze the meat in the marinade the day before. Defrost at the campsite and grill. Slice the meat up and serve with tortillas, salsa and sour cream. Read More

This is a good start but next time I will put a lot more garlic in the marinade and some extra pepper. Still my guests liked it a lot. Read More

This was excellant!! I'm not much of a beef eater and rarely cook it but I was having a craving for a steak. I bought some tri-tip steaks but wasn't sure how to cook them. I used this recipe and it tuned out very tender and flavorful. I did cook it in the broiler instead of on a grill for the same amount of time. I will definitely be making this again. Thanks!!
