This is IT! Family favorite... :) In my family we eat this at least once a week. Makes a nice Sunday dinner. I prepare the marinade on Saturday and let it sit until we're ready to BBQ on Sunday. I was absolutely honored when Bobby Flay did a show with this recipe slightly modified of course! Easy....Delicious and the most tender flavor you'll never expect Prep time does not include time to marinade. The longer .... the better If you like a melt in your mouth Tri-tip this is how I make it.
