Marinated Reverse Seared Tri-Tip


Recommended Posts

Howdy Gurus!

 

Nothing big here, just did a reverse sear on a Tri-Tip over FOGO.  I marinated it in my FoodSaver marinater.  If you don't have one, you should really check it out.  You can get one for under $20 at Amazon.  I highly recommend it.

 

Here are a couple of pics at the beginning and end of the cook.  I just wasn't too ambitious last night, but all y'all get the idea.

So there you have it.  I took the Tri-Tip to 120F on the grates, cranked up the volume to about 475F.  TheBeast took about 10 minutes to go from 200F to 475F.  I pulled at 128F, tented on the carving board for something like 7-10 minutes and then carved and served.  Just your typical reverse sear.

 

Thanks for looking.

Looks great.  Honestly, there isn't really any cut of steak that I prefer over reverse seared tri-tip.  IMO, they are that good :)

 

 

Rob, thanks for the compliment.  And I've yet to find something that tops a tri-tip.  Given the price here in OKC of about $4.95 a pound for Tri-tip versus north of $8.00 for NY Strip and $8.50+ for ribeye, I'm buying all the tri=tip I can get my hands on at this point.

I discovered a couple of months ago that Costco sell's whole cryo-vac packs of PRIME tri's for about $5/lb.  There's usually about 5-6 tri's per pack.  Needless to say, we also eat a lot of TT :-D.  When entertaining, I have found TT sandwich bars (build your own) to be one of the most complimented meals we put together.  Garlic buttered/toasted hoagie rolls, thinly sliced TT, and all the fixings... SOOOO easy, yet SOOOO good!

Rob, we don't have a Costco here in OKC.  There are rumors, but until we get our antiquated liquor laws changed to allow for strong beer and wine to be able to be sold anywhere but the liquor store, it's not going to happen.  I'm going to check with the local Sam's to see what I can negotiated.

 

I absolutely LOVE that sandwich bar idea.  I've got a confab coming up on Memorial Day and that's exactly the ticket I'm going to punch for my guests.  THANK YOU!

That is good looking meat. I bought some tip untrimmed on special a while back, $2.69lb, choice. It was a bulk deal. 5 tri tips in a big bag, 15 pounds. After trimming, there was 5 pounds of fat, pushing the meat price up to $3.59lb. Not to bad.

I trimmed that bad boy pretty lean. It didn't lose too much fat, maybe a quarter pound. Your $3.59/lb beats what I paid. I'm going to check out and see if I can get a case price. Thanks!

That looks great.  I have not had the pleasure of a tri-tip yet. 

 

Most times it is either a strip or a rib steak depending on which is on sale. I will have to look for one the next time I am in the market.

Thanks, Panchango! I can heartily recommend Tri-Tip. It's really big on the West Coast, but not so much elsewhere. I asked the local Sam's to get it and they did a trial. It's now in the case every day. Once people try it, they're sold. Give it a go. Always slice against the grain and the grain generally changes 3Xs during the carving. Check out YouTube for a really good video on Tri-Tip, how to cook, and how to carve.

      Curious about thoughts on starting vs finishing a reverse sear on high heat.  I've only used the low then high approach thus far, and the results have been good, but wonder about the opposite.  For context, I do the low heat on the KJ and high heat on the gasser (faster for me to get to temp and more convenient), so I don't have a concern about trying to get the KJ temp down.
       
      Assume a reasonably thick cut (at least 1.5"/4 cm), high heat at least 500F, low heat 225-250F.
       
      Pros and cons of one method vs the other?

      Hi Kamado Peeps,
      Did a reverse sear over the weekend with some chimichurri sauce.
      Scotch fillet a good inch or two thick smokes with cheery wood for about 1.30 hours and then seared. Set my probe on rare so internal was 49°but a little too rare for the wife so next time I will sear longer of go for a medium rare. The steak was fabulous for me dressed with sauce and some roasted veggies.
      I have ordered some dry aging bags, so I hope there get to me soon as I am super excite to try dry aging and then reverse searing or even just a grill/searing.
      Any tips and/or links for dry again will be appreciated.
       
      Keep smoking

      Hi Guys,
       
      Took my first crack at reverse Searing on my KDC2. Turned out good and to everyone's approval. Did them at 225*C and had a meat thermometer in. Timing should be about and hour but they got to 110* really quick (20-25 min) and a couple were even higher when I took them off to rest.
       
      Only one was cut properly at 2.5" think but that one was still ready to rest only about 10 min after the others. They turned out and but should I have gone with 3"? I still felt the 2.5" steak could have been better and all we're closer to medium than med-rare.
       
      Any suggestions are welcomed, trying to get better!
       
      Thanks guys, cheers!

      I thought I'd care a great cook experience with you all that I just had.  I have a Kamado Joe Big Joe III and I reverse seared some USDA Prime Ribeye's that I picked up at CostCo today.  I used the flexible cooking system and used one half of the heat deflector plates and left the other half open to flame.  I seasoned the steak in the Meat Church Holy Cow seasoning and let them sweat out while I got the grill to temperature. I set big reg to 225 for smoking and it took about an hour (give or take to get the ribeye's to about 120 degrees. After that I opened up the Big Joe and let her rip to about 500-550 degrees and then seared the steaks for about three minutes aside.  I also made a compound butter consisting of rosemary, Italian seasoning, fresh garlic, salt and pepper.  After searing, I took tented the steaks in foil and let the compound butter melt on top.  Lastly, I did some twice baked potatoes in the oven.  All that said, the pictures speak volumes compared to this brief description.  This is probably the best steak I've ever cooked.  Just wanted to share.  Thanks to everyone that's continued to help me on my journey in Kamado style cooking!

      My sister gifted our mom and me a steak dinner for our birthdays this month.  Meaning she bought the steaks and I cooked them.  I used a mix of seasoning salts, Lawry's, garlic salt, and something else my dad had in the cabinet to season them.  I wish I could have really let the seasoning salts do their job for awhile, but basically just let them come up to room temperature since they were purchased today and we were eating them tonight.  I low and slowed them on my Akorn for about an hour @250ish using my BBQube and Bluetooth temp monitor to get them to about 115-120 internal.  I then transferred them to some cast iron skillets with melted butter in them I had heated to 450-500 on my dad's gas burner and seared them for 1 minute per side.  Overall fantastic results. I wanted a good medium/medium-rare for mine and I think I got it dead on.  Money shots provided.
