Recipe by Alan Leonetti

A Tri-Tip is also called a Triangle Roast. It's a very lean cut of meat that does not contain much fat. If you do not see it, ask for it. Do NOT over cook this cut of meat. Do NOT cook it more than medium. NOTE: THERE ARE 24 HOURS OF INACTIVE PREP TIME IN REFRIGERATOR.

I just tried this recipe for potluck. Everybody loved it!! I didn't have red wine vinegar so I used apple cider vinegar. Also I didn't have time to marinade for 24hrs, but did about 20 hrs. Still turned out fabulous. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
