Delicious!! This teriyaki-type marinade gave the tri-tip a wonderful flavor. I used a 3-lb. tri-tip and there was plenty of marinade without having to double the recipe. Also, I ended up marinating the meat for about 30 hours. My family really loved this and gave it 2-thumbs up. Thank you for sharing this wonderful is definitely a keeper!
