The Weber cookbooks seem to have the most tri-tip recipes of any of the ones I own. This recipe was courtesy of Weber’s Real Grilling
. Of the three items I made that day (see also: HERBED POTATO PACKET
& SWEET POTATO & PEEPER SALAD
) the so called main course was actually the easiest. The chimichurri sauce is used as both a marinade and a sauce and is very easy to make since the chopping is done in a food processor. The tri-tip is marinated with the sauce for 4-6 hours. The meat is direct grilled over medium heat for 10 minutes to get a nice sear and then is finished indirectly for 30-40 minutes. After a 10 minute rest the meat was carved & served with the chimichurri sauce. Tri-tip tastes like steak and eats like a roast: A great combination that was only enhanced by the chimichurri sauce.
