In the post-holiday haze, I’ve been craving beef. Never mind that we had a big prime rib on Christmas, which essentially disappeared because it was mind-blowingly good (I know, I shouldn’t have taken a vacation from the blog when I was making that bad boy), but I’m kind of turkeyed and ham’ed out. You too? Excellent. Let’s make with the moo.
This was the first beef tri tip I’ve ever made. Double R Farms, where I get our pork, also had an Angus steer this fall and I was able to snag one of the tri-tip roasts (steaks?) that I had tucked away in the freezer. I’ve heard of people smoking them, roasting them, BBQ’ing them, but Patrice at Double R suggested just making it like a big steak. So we did!
