Tri-tip Roast Meat

How to Cook the Best Tri-Tip Roast in the Oven

Why we love to roast!

My family loves meat! In fact, steak is a staple food over the weekend. My husband also loves to roast meat. On cool nights, we love to hang out in the backyard and grill some meat. One of our favorites is the Tri-Tip Roast recipe. This triangular tip is lean and you have to let it marinate overnight to bring out the flavor. During Fridays, I drop by the supermarket and stock up on this piece of meat so I can marinate it and cook it for lunch the next day.

Whenever we roast meat, we always pair it with a light salad such as the Spicy Summer Slaw by Jeremy’s food blog. Tri-tip roast with vegetables in the oven or some mashed potatoes are also a hit. It is also perfect with red wine — my husband and I have a few sips for dinner!

How to prepare the tri-tip roast marinade:

For the tri-tip marinade, I have 2 alternatives. The first option is to mix 1/4 cup olive oil, 2 teaspoons minced garlic, 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar, 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce, 1/4 cup soy sauce, 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard, and salt and pepper to taste.

The second option is more of a tri-tip dry rub which consists of 1 tbsp. olive oil, 1 tbsp. brown sugar, 1 tbsp. ground cumin, 1 tbsp. smoked paprika, 1 tsp. garlic powder, and 1 tsp. onion powder.

When marinating, place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Put the meat in a Ziplock bag then pour the marinade. Massage the meat so the marinade absorbs well and keep it in the fridge overnight. When you’re ready to roast, take out the meat from the fridge at least an hour before roasting.

Dig in!

I can just smell the juiciness of the tri-tip roast meat! Can you imagine how the boys look when they smell the aroma of this freshly roasted meat?

Bon Appetit!!

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
