Big Island Paniolo Tri-Tip Steak

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Chocolatl

Adapted from Sam Choy's Polynesian Kitchen. Best if grilled over kiawe or mesquite. Prep time includes marinating time.

Top Review by Nyteglori

I decreased the amount by half, and added a few drops of mesquite liquid smoke. Great flavors I think this would also work well for pork.
