Grilled Tri-Tip


Tri-tip beef is a cut popular in the Western United States and is great for grilling. It is not the most tender of cuts, so the marinade tenderizes and greatly enhances the flavor.
4 pounds (about) beef tri-tip
2 tablespoons ketchup
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 onion
2 cloves garlic
1 jalapeno pepper, stem removed
1/4 cup cilantro (include tender stems)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon lime zest
1 lime, juice only
1/2 lemon, juice only
1/3 cup honey
1 Place all ingredients except tri-tip in a blender or food processor. Blend on high speed until only small pieces of vegetables and herbs are visible.

2 Place tri-tip in a plastic bag or glass bowl. Pour marinade over beef, turning to coat. Seal and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight, turning a few times.

3 Prepare grill for high heat.

4 Remove meat from marinade. Discard marinade.

5 Place try-tip on grill and cook turning once, 15 to 20 minutes for medium-rare. Remove and rest for 5 to 10 minutes.

6 Present grilled tri-tip on a carving board. At the table, slice thinly and serve.
