Smoked Tri Tip RecipeCourse: Main DishDifficulty: Easy
2-3 pound tri tip roast fat cap and silverskin removed
3 Tablespoons salted butter
1 sprig rosemary
2 Tablespoons each salt, pepper, and garlic powder
- FOR SALSA VERDE
1 cup roughly chopped parsley leaves
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
5 garlic cloves
1 tablespoon capers
Lemon zest from 1/2 lemon
Lemon juice from 1/2 lemon
Pinch of red pepper flakes
- Preheat your smoker to 225°F. I like to make use of a strong wood like oak or hickory.
- Season the tri tip on all sides and place within the smoker. Shut the lid and smoke till the inner temperature reads 120°F for a rare roast, 127°F for a medium rare roast, 133°F for a medium roast, 140°F for a medium well roast, or 150°F for a well done roast.
- When your tri tip is close to the proper inner temperature, preheat a forged iron skillet over excessive heat. Take away your tri tip from the smoker.
- Put 2-3 tablespoons of butter into the forged iron skillet and let it soften. Drop within the sprig of rosemary and then place the tri tip into the scorching butter. Sear the tri tip for 2-3 minutes per side, spooning the butter and rosemary over the steak as it cooks.
- Pull your roast out of the pan and transfer onto a reducing board. Enable the roast to relaxation for 15 minutes earlier than slicing towards the grain and serving. The grain adjustments in a tri tip, so I all the time begin on the smallest level finish and angle my knife as wanted to maintain my slices going towards the grain.
- Prepare the salsa verde: Place parsley, capers, garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, red pepper flakes, and kosher salt in a food processor, pulsing till all ingredients are chopped and well-combined. Scrape down the edges. With the motor working, slowly stream within the olive oil. Cease after you’ve added 1/ 2 the oil, scrape down the sides, after which add the rest of the oil. Season to taste with extra kosher salt and lemon juice.
