Tri-Tip With Chimichurri Recipe

Get Your Grill on With Tri-Tip and Chimichurri

Growing up, I ate a lot of grilled tri-tip. It was my dad's preferred cut of meat because it's affordable, simple to cook, and serves a crowd. It also pairs well with twice-baked potatoes. After we traveled to Argentina back in 2005, we started enjoying grilled tri-tip with chimichurri. The pairing of smoky grilled steak and fresh herb sauce is still one of my favorite entrees. Although you could marinate the meat for more flavor, I think it tastes great with just a liberal sprinkling of salt and ground pepper. It's a rustic dish that's perfect for enjoying in the open air.

Tri-Tip With Chimichurri Recipe 2010-08-06 10:51:49

Ingredients

1 tri-tip
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Chimichurri, recipe below

Directions

  1. About an hour before grilling, take the meat out of the fridge. Place on a large baking sheet and let come to room temperature.
  2. Preheat a grill to medium heat.
  3. Season the tri-tip with salt and pepper. Then flip and season the other side with salt and pepper. Repeat to ensure that the meat is generously seasoned.
  4. Grill the steak for 8-9 minutes per side until a meat thermometer inserted in the fattest part reaches 140°F. Once removed from the grill, let the steak rest for 10-15 minutes; it will continue to cook. The temperature for medium rare steak is 145°F. If you prefer steak more well done, continue to cook until desired temperature is reached, remembering that while resting it will rise about 5 degrees.
  5. Thickly slice steak and serve with the chimichurri sauce.

Serves 5-6.

I love chimichurri. I fell in love with it when I went to Central America, before it was "cool" up here. I can't get enough of the stuff! I sometimes put different herbs in it, though. Just to change things up a bit.
