V's Tri-Tip Marinade

This year is flying by, isn't it?  Seems like February was just a week ago and here it is June. Well in spite of the fact that I seem to be living in a time warp, I have been one busy bee! The boys only have a couple more days of school left and then home for the summer! woo hoo.... My oldest, my marine, came home for the long Memorial Day weekend and all he wanted to do was spend a lazy day at the lake.
At his request, I marinated Tri-tip and made my "secret" bbq sauce for everyone to enjoy on the boat. After tubing, and getting some much needed sun, we devoured a couple Tri-tip sandwiches my hubby had on the grill....with the sauce of course. Here's how I marinate the meat overnight.

Tri-Tip Marinade

  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon onion salt
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon lemon pepper
  • 3 tablespoons minced garlic (in water)
  • 1 tablespoon minced dried onions
  • 1 (2 lb) tri-tip roast, trimmed


1.  Mix all of the ingredients except for the beef in a large mixing bowl to make the marinade. Place trimmed tri-tips in a plastic container and pour the marinade over. Let stand in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours Heat grill to medium temperature.

2  Place tri-tips on grill at a 45 degree angle to establish grill marks and cook about 35 minutes, or until cooked to desired doneness. Remove the tri-tips from the grill and let rest about 2 to 5 minutes before slicing. Serve on Hogie Rolls and/or with your favorite side dishes.

 Oh but wait there's more.... desssert.
