Tri tip marinade

6 posts in this topic

Quite simple but very tasty

Balsamic vinegar

Olive oil

Worcheshire sauce

Minced garlic and some rosemary

I use my meat tenderizer to try and make the meat more porous and I am two nights in a row successful.

I've used a marinade very close to what you mentioned with the addition of some of Dave's Italian Dressing and pineapple juice. I have a jaccard meat tenderizer like you mentioned but only use it on the very toughest of meats. I find it causes all of the juices of the meat to run out when cooking. But for tough pieces of steak I feel you can only help them and a good marinade can sure help too. I like to add some pineapple or papaya juice into the mix and marinade by vacuum sealing the steak into a mason jar or a sealer bag. It really helps to get the marinade into the meat quicker. If I use the bag I let the steak sit in the marinade at least overnight. You can freeze them in the marinade too. It also works with dry seasoning rubs to prepare them before sealing and then freeze immediately.

Santa Maria is the standard by which all others will be judged. Hard to beat that red oak flavor.

I do go off the reservation a bit on my tri-tips. I use a marinade by John Henry's called Texas Brisket. I put half John Henry's Texas Brisket Marinade and half beef broth then a few strips of hickory or mohagany smoked bacon in a saucepan and simmer. This makes a great Au Jus and marinade. I cool the mixture and inject it into the tri-tips. :smiley-outta-here:

Additionally, I put the rub by John Henry's on the outside and let it marinate. I sear the meat then slow smoke it over mesquite for an hour or til proper temp.
