Chili Crusted Trip-Tip RoastAnnieDrewsI tried this recipe by request and I'm very pleased with how good it turned out! It is from our local electric cooperative newspaper. I followed the recipe exactly, except for the fact that I couldn't find a tri tip roast. I used a similar roast as recommended by the meat department attendent. I doubled the recipe and used almost 5 pounds of meat. I cooked ours to 170 degrees for well done and it was still nice and tender and very juicy.
