As a male, over 50, who is just starting to enjoy cooking, I look for meal combinations that aren't too complex and can be done within 60 minutes. This meal makes a meal out of marinaded tri-tip, yams and zucchini.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine soy sauce, Splenda, Cabernet Sauvignon, garlic, pepper and ginger.
  2. Cut tri-tip into cubes and add to mixing bowl. Stir and mix well. Refrigerate for 30 minutes, stir and mix again, then let sit for another 30 minutes.
  3. Peel yams and cut into half inch thick rounds.
  4. Slice onion into 4 slices.
  5. Wash and slice zucchini into half inch think rounds.
  6. Pull stems from mushroom and wash.
  7. In a large frying pan, set on medium heat, add olive oil, marinaded tri-tip, onion and yams. Season with garlic & herb seasoning. Place lid on frying pan, cook for 10 minutes, then toss and turn ingredients, replace lid and cook for another 10 minutes.
  8. Add zucchini, mushrooms, garlic & herb seasoning, replace lid, cook for 5 minutes, toss and turn ingredients, replace lid and cook for another 5 minutes or until zucchini are slightly soft.

Loved it! The flavor was wonderful. If you don't like yams you can substitute carrots. Thank you for posting Chef Vic.

I made this the other night and we really liked the combination. The only thing I didn't have was the zucchini. The meat was tender and the yams gave it a different and bright touch to the dish.
