A tri tip roast is a wonderful cut of beef. The tri tip is a 1-2 pound steak that comes from the bottom of the sirloin. The name “tri tip” refers to the odd shape of the muscle.
Tri Tips are one of “secret jewels” of the steak world. Tri tips have very little internal marbling so they are rather mild on the flavor scale.
I like to make these extra special by soaking the tri tip in a red wine marinade then slow smoking the next day. You can slice up a slow smoked tri tip and use it to make steak sandwiches good enough to make you cry!
