Tri tip roast

Oven-Roasted Tri-tip

Tri-tip is a super flavorful, tender and delicious cut of beef rich in protein and B vitamins. It can be slow roasted, grilled or smoked. Luckily it doesn’t need to be cooked for hours. This tender cut can be quickly cooked and sliced against the grain for a simple way to get some deliciously cooked steak on the table!!
