In a medium-sized bowl, combine oil, lemon juice,
soy sauce, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce,
garlic powder, and pepper. Whisk together.
Place steak in a Ziploc bag and pour marinade
over steak. Let marinate in the refrigerator for
at least 30 minutes. 2 - 4 hours is more ideal.
Heat outdoor grill to high.
Once the grill is heated, place tri-tip steak on
the grill. Generously salt each side of steak.
Sear each side for 5 - 8 minutes per side.
Lower to medium to medium-low heat and continue
to grill for 6-10 minutes or until thermometer
reaches 130 degrees in the center of the steak.
Tri-tip steaks can range in thickness. It is
suggested to use a meat thermometer to check the
temperature to ensure the meat isn't overcooked.
The total cooking time will be 20 - 25 minutes at
the least. An average 2-lb. tri-tip will need
about 25 minutes total cooking time.
Since tri-tip steaks vary in thickness, your best
bet is to use a meat thermometer to check for
temperature. The instant-read thermometer reads
120 degrees for rare, 130 degrees for medium-
rare, and 140 degrees for medium.
Remove steak from grill and let rest for 10 -15
minutes before slicing. Slice across the grain
for the most tender meat.
May serve with garlic parsley butter.
