TriTip Recipe from Episode 207

Dry Rub

1 Tri Tip 3- 7 lbs

1/3 c coarse sea salt

1/2 c dark brown sugar

4 T freeze dried coffee

1 T garlic powder

1 T paprika

1/2 T ground cumin

1/2 T mustard seeds (yellow or brown)

1/2 T black pepper


Mix all the ingredients except the meat. Rub the dry rub over the entire tritip and refrigerate for at 3 hours, or preferably over night.

Preheat a grill to 300 degrees.

Wrap the tritip in aluminum foil. Two layers is a good call. 

Grill the tritip for 3 to 7 hours, depending on weight. When the meat is very tender and easily comes with just a fork, remove from grill.

Heat the grill to 450 or preheat an oven to 450 degrees. Place the tritip in an ovenproof pan and roast for 20 minutes to give it a good char on the exterior.

Chili Recipe from Ep. 206

1 T cumin powder

1 T smoked paprika

1 T garlic powder 

1/2 T turmeric

1 chipotle chili (optional, adds heat)

Dice the onion. Add 1 T oil to a Dutch oven. Sauté the onion until translucent, about 7 minutes. Add the beef and sauté, breaking it up as you cook it. Add the remaining ingredients and cover with a good lid. Turn the head to low and simmer for 3-4 hours, until the beans are tender.
