Chef's Serving Suggestions
One of the best side dishes to serve with tri-tip is mashed potatoes. The creamy texture and buttery flavor of the potatoes pairs well with the beefy, smoky taste of the tri-tip. Another great option is a simple green salad with a vinaigrette dressing. For sauces, a classic bbq sauce or horseradish sauce are both good choices. And finally, don't forget herbs! A sprinkle of fresh parsley or rosemary over the tri-tip will add a flavorful finishing touch.
