The Best Beef Tri Tip
Roast beef can be done with many different cuts, but Chef John recommends beef tri-tip for a super affordable, flavorful option. This is one of those 'professional' cuts of beef that's popular in restaurants and barbecue joints but not as familiar for the home cook as it should be. With this easy low-temp roasting technique, there's no marinating, no searing, and no opportunity to mess up! Just rub on some salt and spices - John uses both fresh and dried rosemary here - and pop it in the oven for 1 to 2 hours until done to your liking. You'll also see how to cut the finished tri-tip properly, since the meat fibers, aka "grains," split direction. Get the recipe for The Best Beef Tri Tip.
