If you’re looking for an easy yet amazing Tri Tip recipe, you’ve come to the right place. This steak is marinated with a rub seasoning, I use on my Texas Style Brisket, with one other secret ingredient that will surprise you. Plus, it’s topped off with a Chimichurri Sauce that is, out of this world, incredible. So you get one of the most tender and juicy beef steaks, that is seasoned and seared on the grill and baked to perfection, with one of the best meat condiments ever created.
Cooking a Tri Tip Perfectly
One of the main secrets to a great Tri Tip is locking in the juice with a sear and cooking low and slow. That means paying real close attention to the internal temperature while it grills, smokes or bakes. In this recipe I use both the grill and the oven to get the temperature I want. And since my personal tastes fall into the “medium rare” category, my target temp is around 130 degrees Fahrenheit. Using an external meat thermometer helps meat get there perfectly because I can monitor the temp, outside of the oven, with out disturbing the cooking process by opening and closing the door. And this can be done with grills and smokers as well. So once you’ve decided your preferred cooking method of choice, you can set it and forget it.

When I think of Beef Stew, I’m reminded of those Sunday afternoon dinners my family would have after several hours of church. The only problem was that any stew that my Mom made wasn’t very good because it was always runny, watered down and flavorless. So when I set out to make Beef Stew for my own family now, I follow one simple rule; make it better than Mom’s recipe(which isn’t hard to do BTW). But don’t let this sob story fool you. This recipe is amazing and I even show you how to cheat!
How do I make Beef Stew
All I do is cook a thick hearty soup with fresh chopped vegetables from my garden and I add a well seasoned steak. Then I add a few seasonings. That’s it and that’s all. Now I do cheat a little when I don’t have time to make my own Chicken and Brown gravy. But after you try this Beef Stew recipe you’ll quickly understand why I do it. Packaged gravy is cheap, it saves time preparing it and it makes this soup taste phenomenal!
This is just a wonderful way to serve Garlic Mushrooms and Onions. Whether you’re preparing a side dish or something to compliment your fish or steak, this recipe is just the way to go. There is however another alternative I would like you to consider…
Here I combine the ideas behind a Mushroom and Swiss, French Onion Soup and Stuffed Mushrooms. Then I wrap them up into one glorious recipe that just can’t be denied. The Broth soaks into the toasted garlic bread and that Swiss cheese just melts around every ingredient. So every bite you take it simply amazing!
