This tritip recipe is a great substitute if you don't feel like bbqing outside. I added a tblsp. of olive oil, tsp. of worcestershire sauce and a tsp. of liquid smoke to ingredients then rubbed on tritip and let it rest over nite in frig. It came out so juicey! I would recommend less baking time if you prefer your beef rare.
I made three different tri tips with three different marinades/rubs for my grandson's birthday and this was the clear winner. I grilled the tri tip on the bbq using indirect heat. Served with pinquito beans for that Santa Maria tri tip goodness.
Whole family loved it. I didn't have any sage, lemon pepper or bouillon but otherwise made as recipe stated and added 1 Tbsp butter to bottom of dish and 1 Tbsp to top of meat
Tri tip is seasoned with a mixture of thyme, basil, marjoram, mustard, and red wine to produce a simple and delicious roast.
