Tri tip roast



I don't remember who on here suggested it many months ago... but I finally found it and made a pot roast yesterday. It's flatter than a rump so doesn't need as much cook time. It has less fat than a chuck. The muscle striations are more clearly defined so you want to carve against the grain.

But it's the best tasting most tender pot roast I've ever made. I could have carved it with a butter knife.

Calandro's. They don't label or price them different from the rest of the sirloin. Hit or miss. Butcher told me I missed it by 10 minutes yesterday.

re: Tri tip roast


Does it ever go by another name? Because when I first read it on this board I couldn't find it. Then I simply forgot about it for 3 months. Saw the label two days ago and it triggered a thought.

It's not even labeled as tri-tip where I shop. Just have to look at the sirloin roasts and find it.

It has different names but none are applicable in Louisiana from what I've seen.

I typically sear in a pan and finish in the oven.

Marinate with lime juice, cumin, chilis, cilantro, Grilled med rare over hard wood, slice thin against the grain. Serve with grilled onions, avocado and good tortillas. Great cut.

I cooked a few of these at the tailgate for the Florida game. I've probably cooked about 20 or so since I first found out about them. I get them from Maxwell's on Highland. Also have gotten them from Matherne's.

Salt,pepper,garlic powder. Sear on both sides. Cook on indirect heat for roughly an hour. One of the easiest,best tasting cuts i've ever cooked. Just wish they were easier to find in this area.



LINK to my thread on this a few years ago.

I'm not fricking up a tri-tip with all that.

Do that with a blade steak.

Sirloin is about the best tasting piece of meat there is. Tri-tip is the best piece or sirloin.

re: Tri tip roast



So I just got one; 2.5 lbs, angus, choice.

I can pan sear and slow cook in oven

or

sear on grill and slow smoke with hickory chips.

Which is better?

That is what I do.

That is what I would do if I knew how to smoke.

Smoke first, then sear. Ive tried it both ways and they turn out smokier and juicer this way.

About 1 1/2- 2 hours of smoke. I put a probe and pull from smoke around 115-120°. Sear over hot coals to form a crust, then wrap in foil and let rest for 15 minutes. When i cut it, i save the juices and use as a gravy.
