If you’re not from the Santa Maria, California you might not know about the Tri-Tip. This crescent shaped cut of beef from the sirloin is very lean, but big in beef flavor. Tri-tip professionals will tell you that preparing this iconic dish is simplicity itself. Just season the roast with salt, pepper and a bit of garlic and grill to perfection. In Santa Maria, they use red oak logs and a special grill that elevates to find the perfect cooking temperature. We like to set up our grill for 2-zone cooking, place the Tri-Tip on the cool zone until the center temperature is about 110 degrees, then use the hot zone to put a nice sear on the roast. Slice the roast thin against the grain, serve with grilled garlic bread, a rough cut salsa, traditional pinquito beans and you’ll have an unforgettable feast for your favorite crowd.
Due to the unique conformations of this product, approximate weights can vary up to +/- 0.5 pounds.
"...Hands down, Double R Ranch is the best beef in the country." ~ Eric Hellner, Executive Chef, The Metropolitan Grill, Seattle, WA
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.

Great Tri-Tip Roast
It’s difficult to find tri-tip outside of California and I took a chance on SRF. This tri-tip was everything I hoped it would be. Excellent quality, lean, and perfect cut. I definitely will be ordering again.

SRF Team : Hi Joanna! So happy to hear you enjoyed the Tri-Tip! Unfortunately, at this time we only carry Chef's Gold in the bricks.
Best tri tip ever! Can’t get this cut on the east coast so resorted to ordering online.

SRF Team : Hi Joy,
Thank you for taking the time to write this review! We truly appreciate your feedback and are so happy to hear you enjoyed our Tri-Tip on the East Coast!
I spend a lot of time grilling and smoking foods, and I had been wanting to order from SRF for quite some time.
The quality of this beef made prepping and cooking it an absolute pleasure, and I'll be ordering more from SRF in the future.

My New Favorite
Growing up, my dad would always grill Tri-tips for our family and we loved them. I had been looking forward to throwing a few on the grill myself.
I reverse seared 2 tri-tips for a party (8 people) and they were phenomenal. Prepared with a Santa Maria Style dry rub and served with a classic Chimichurri sauce, I could eat it everyday!!! Can't wait to try the Wagyu Tri-tip. From now on, I will always keep one in the freezer.
