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. You can slice up a slow smoked tri tip and use it to make steak sandwiches good enough to make you cry!
The most important part of cooking a tri tip is to cook it to an internal temperature of 135F. Cooking a tri tip past 135F runs the risk of drying the meat out.
