Coffee Marinated Tri Tip

Posted by Jennifer (the student) on July 25, 2012

 

This is a recipe we have been making for years. And we have friends and family that request this dish.

Ingredients:

  • 2 to 3 pound tri tip
  • 1 cup brewed coffee (good quality)
  • 1 TBSP olive oil
  • 2 to 3 bay leaves
  • 3 TBSP bbq sauce (any type you like)

Instructions:

  1. Combine coffee, olive oil, bay leaves and bbq sauce in large Ziploc bag.
  2. Place tri tip in the bag and place in refrigerator. Marinate at least 6 hours.
  3. Remove tri tip from refrigerator 1 hour before grilling.
  4. Grill on the non-fat side for 10 to 15 minutes.*
  5. Grill the fat side for 10 minutes or until tri tip reaches your desired level of doneness (or at least close, it will continue to cook once removed from grill). *
  6. Remove from grill a let sit for 20 minutes for slicing.
  7. Serve and enjoy.
* Note:
  • On a charcoal grill move charcoals to the side, on a gas grill turn up the heat on the side burners to 600-700 degrees and the middle grills off.
  • No need to trim the fat unless there is an excessive amount of fat.
  • Using the palm of your hand: if the roast feels like the center of your palm, is rare if it feels like the bottom of your thumb is medium.
