Looking to try roasting a tri-tip roast

Aha! You did it, Steve!

I'll have to ask Baby Bro to scope some out and snatch some up before Steve gets them all.

A number of years ago, McKinnon's Meat Market in Everett had them on sale for the weekend. The public here didn't know what they were or how to cook them. So they sat there all day Friday and Saturday. On Sunday the price went way down. I knew what they were since I had live out west so I snatched up about three of them for the freezer. I did a low and slow roast in the oven to medium rare. Tossed in some 'taters, carrots and onions and we had a delicious Sunday dinner. The roast and veggies gave off enough of their juices and liquid for a fantastic gravy made right in the roasting pan, while the roast rested. I didn't have a BBQ at the time available to me. Except for the third one. I brought that one to my daughter's the weekend she opened her pool. I had received an income tax refund check and bought a small Weber BBQ and the charcoal. It was my present to start the summer off. Anything else, my SIL had to use his gas grill to make the extras on. He was given strict instruction to stick with what he knows. A gas grill. I was in charge of the Weber.

In the oven or on the grill, it can be a lovely cut of meat if done right.

Sounds like it can be roasted like an eye of round roast, not needing a long cook time. No wonder with the price for tri-tips.

Cheryl posted her tri-tip roast pic a few days on the "Whats for Dinner" thread and wow, where did she get that plump tri-tip? I even pm'd her to see if it was at any chain store near me. It doesn't matter. I'm gonna buy the next fattest tri-tip I see, then get back here for advice.

Lol at "they plump when you cook them"...hehe

It's not a tall thick beef to begin with, I guess.

Calson, they actually do "plump when you cook them".

I prefer to grill them, however I've done many in the oven a couple of ways.

The first way is to roast them heavily seasoned in a hot 425 degree oven to get a nice crust on it. Depending on the weight, it can take as little as 30 minutes to get it to get it to med. rare. Use your instant read thermometer, remove at 125 degrees and let it rest under foil before you cut it.

The most recent way I've experimented with is to fold it over and tie it into a ball. Actually, I used silicone bands to hold it together. The idea is to keep the small end from getting over done. I roasted it with the "no peeky roast beefy" method.

Both methods work well.

Hope that helps.

My apologies for not getting back with you right away, Caslon. I got your PM. I spent the evening with my little grandson at his baseball game and with family afterwards. Looking forward to talking about tri tip tomorrow!

I've never seen one either. Must be regional or special request.

Caslon, what Kay said. Roast it in a hot oven, and no more than med rare - they tend to get tough if cooked any more than that. I feel like crying when my daughter and SIL roast tri tip well done. They don't like the slightest bit of pink in their meats.

Lots of folks like them marinated, Ross posted some beautiful pics in the grilling thread. I like mine just salted and a heavy amount of cracked black pepper.

To answer your PM question, you should be able to get them in all those supermarkets you mentioned. Albertson's has them on sale right now for $3.88/lb untrimmed, and $5.88/lb trimmed. That's a good deal.

It's just crazy that they are so hard to come by in many states - I'll never understand that.

I've seen sirloin tip - don't know if that's the same thing or not.

Nope, sorry Rick. It's not the same thing.
