Decided to make a tri-tip. I had previously done this once or twice but forgot to actually document it and therefore each time I’ve had to make it, I have to google various recipes and try to figure out what I had done previously. I think one time I wrapped it in aluminum foil and another time I put it on a raised platform in a pan. This time I remembered to write down how I made it so I had it for future reference. I guess tri tip is more of a west coast cut of beef that isn’t typically made it other parts of the US (though with the passage of time I’m sure it is more common now all over the US). It was Labor Day and so we were trying to come up with something to make – I didn’t want to use the grill because it has been insanely hot here all the time. I purchased an untrimmed Tri Tip from the store that was about 2.7 lbs or so.
