3-Pepper Tri Tip

IMG_4292

This rub recipe is nice and spicy with a hint of brown sugar for sweetness and it helps form a nice crust on the tri tip on the grill. This recipe is my go-to recipe when I have friends and family over. A signature summer dish in my opinion.

I serve the tri tip with corn and black bean salad and some good garlic or bread toasted on the grill.

3-Pepper Rub:

2T. black pepper
1/2T. cayenne
1/2 T. white pepper
1 1/2 T. kosher salt
1 T. brown sugar
1/2 T. oregano

Mix all ingredients in a jar that can be sealed in a pantry. Rub a tri tip roast on both sides with the rub. Allow the tri tip to sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes before cooking on the grill.

Insert a thermometer into the thickest part of the steak. Cook until the roast reaches an internal temperature of 145 (medium-rare) or 160 (medium).

Allow the roast to sit for about 20-30 minutes before slicing.
