It's our favorite marinade for tri-tip. The original recipe is from the Food Network site, but I've changed it so much that I claim it as my own :) It's SO tender and flavorful!! Marinate for at least 6 hours or over night. This is enough marinade for a 2-3 lb. tri-tip.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all ingredients except tri-tip in a zip-lock bag.
  2. Add tri-tip and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours.
  3. We grill ours slowly over coals is best, but gas is fine. We will be smoking it this summer too.

This marinade was GREAT! I didn't have any garlic cloves, so I used 1.5 teaspoons of minced garlic instead; otherwise I didn't change a thing!

I've made this several times now and have really enjoyed it. I was afraid it would be too salty but it was delightful and delicious. Thanks.
