The Tri-Tip is a staple of Central California cuisine. This triangular cut from the sirloin is famous for its performance on the grill, especially when prepared on hardwood. While the tri-tip is lean, it’s bursting with flavor. In Santa Maria, the home of the Tri-Tip, this crescent shaped roast is prepared using salt and pepper and grilled to an ideal medium rare. The Snake River Farms Tri-Tip has the rich taste you expect from American Wagyu beef, yet is surprisingly lean. Serve in the classic California style with garlic toast, salsa and pinquito beans or use your favorite method to grill, braise or rotisserie cook this delicious roast.
Due to the unique conformations of this product, approximate weights can vary up to +/- 0.5 pounds.
Roast Temperature Guide
Here are the magic numbers you’ll need to determine when your roast is cooked to the degree of doneness you most prefer. The internal temp is when the roast should be removed from the heat. The roast will continue to cook so the temperature will rise during the rest period.
|Rare||Red center, very cool||110°F|
|Medium Rare||Red, warm center||120°F|
|Medium Well||Pink center||140°F|
|Well||No pink||Not recommended|
*Consuming raw or undercooked meats may increase your risk of foodborne illness. The USDA recommends an internal temp of 145°F and resting for at least 3 minutes.

If you want the best...
I tried Lobel's Waygu Tri Tip and Snake River Black label blows it away. In all honesty Lobel's compared more evenly with the local supermarket but more expensive. I've had Snake Rivers Black Label a couple times now and they are consistent in being high quality and trimmed to perfection. I marinade with Island Teriyaki then add salt and fresh ground pepper to the fat side and that's it. Try it. You'll love it.

This tri tip really is some next level stuff. I buy it for friends and family as a unique “thank you” or celebratory gift and everyone is always so impressed how tasty this basic tri tip cut can be! We have the pleasure of having seaside market “Cardiff crack” two blocks down the street and this meat surely blows that out of the water. Worth it!
