The Tri Tip Steak

What is a Tri Tip Steak?

Tri-tip steak is a triangular muscle cut from the bottom sirloin subprimal cut and ranges between 1.5-2.5 pounds. It is a tender and flavorful cut, with a bold, beefy taste. It's also a relatively inexpensive cut of meat.

The average 4 oz serving of tri-tip has about 175 calories, 19 grams of protein, and less than 5 grams of fat. It's also high in B vitamins such as niacin and riboflavin, and is a good source of zinc and selenium. Tri-tip can be cooked using almost any method, including grilling, pan-frying, broiling, roasting and braising. It should be cooked to an internal temperature of 145°F. It is commonly used in fajitas and stir-fry dishes.

How do you tenderize tri-tip?

Tri-tip steak is naturally tender and well-marbled, but can be further tenderized by marinating in an acidic-based marinade — like lime juice or vinegar — for a few hours before cooking.
