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.

We haven't had the sirloin steaks yet but we cooked 2 Tri-tips on our Traeger grill. They were fantastic! They barely made it off the cutting board while being sliced as everyone was "testing" them! We can't find this cut on the east coast. SRF really impressed us from the way to order on the website, the way the meat was packed/shipped to how it tasted! We are patrons now!

Being from California I can buy a much better tasting Tri-Tip for half the price. It lacked marbleization and was not as tender or flavorful as what I’m used to in a good Tri-Tip. Not bad but would definitely not order again.

SRF Team : Hi Linda! Thank you for taking the time to give us feed back on our SRF Tri Tip.
The hit of the party!
Dinner for 18 and I chose tri-tip for my main. I did a deep sear on the grill for the three of them and finished in the oven. Perfect. Raves all around. It was the best choice I could have made.

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.
