Total Time

50 min

Yield

Makes 6-8 servings
  • 1 Leahy's Angus Beef Tri Tip Steak
  • 1 cup Canola Oil ( or vegetable oil)
  • 1 cup California Cabernet ( or similar dry red wine)
  • 1 Tbsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 Tbsp Kosher Salt
  • 1 tsp Pepper

    Mix together all of the marinade ingredients until combined. Place the steak in the marinade and work the steak around in the marinade until all surfaces are covered. Click here to read why we don’t need to marinate the meat overnight!

  • 2

    Preheat your grill to 450°F and set up for direct grilling. Place the marinated steak directly on the grill.

  • 3

    Cook for a total of 20 minutes, flipping the meat every five minutes so each side cooks for 10 minutes. This will allow a crispy outside but a evenly cooked inside.

  • 4

    Baste the meat with additional marinade when you flip it the last time. This will add extra flavor.

  • 5

    Remove the meat from the grill, place in aluminum foil and wrap it up. Let sit for 5 minutes. It should be at about 130°F internal temperature.

  • 6

    Remove from foil and slice into thin slices. Slice against the grain of the meat for maximum tenderness. Enjoy!
