Reverse Seared Tri-Tip
- 1 Tri-Tip (2-4lb) (we trim most of the fat cap off the top to allow for even cooking)
- Lane's Brisket Rub (or our Brancho Rub)
- Olive oil
- 1-2 tbls of Unsalted Sweet Cream Butter
- Instant read thermometer
- Applewood chunks
Set your grill/smoker up for indirect cooking at 250 degrees. Mix in some Applewood chunks for a great smoked flavor
Remove your Tri-Tip from the fridge at least 1 hour before cooking. Trim the fat cap off of the Tri-tip (or ask your butcher to do so when purchasing) Drizzle olive oil to lightly cover all sides of the steak. Using our Brisket & Ancho Espresso Rubs1, season well on all parts of the steak and gently press in with your hands.
Place your Tri-Tip on your grill/smoker. Flip the steak after 10-15 minutes. Cook until internal temperature reaches 120 degrees. (Verify with an instant-read thermometer)
The time will vary per cook due to the thickness of each steak so make sure to always cook to internal temp.
NOTE: At this stage, cook your steak until its 10 degrees ‘cooler’ than your desired finished temperate
Remove the steak, place on a clean cutting board, and rest without covering for 10 minutes. Slice and serve.
Cut against the grain. It is up to you whether you want to shave it (cut really thin) or cut slices the width of a pencil.
