What's this?

Reverse seared like a boss, this tri-tip is everything a steak should be: juicy, flavorful, and addicting.

Ingredients

  • 1 (3-5 lb) tri-tip

  • 1/8 Cup pepper

  • 1/8 Cup salt

Steps

  • 1

    When ready to cook, set Traeger temperature to 225℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes. For optimal flavor, use Super Smoke if available.
  • 2

    Combine salt and pepper. Season all sides of meat with a heavy coat of the salt and pepper mixture.
  • 3

    Place tri-tip directly on the grill grate and cook until it reaches an internal temperature of 130℉, this should take about 60 to 90 minutes.
  • 4

    When tri-tip reaches 130℉, pull off the grill and wrap in foil.
  • 5

    Increase the Traeger temperature to 500°F and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
  • 6

    When grill comes to temperature, remove tri-tip from foil and sear for 4 minutes on each side.

    Pull off the grill and allow to rest for 10 to 15 minutes. Slice against the grain to serve. Enjoy!
