Santa Maria!

by zydecopaws on August 9, 2009

Tri-tips, that is… After imbibing in all the traditional comp meats during yesterday’s judging class, I was in the mood to fix something different. So tri-tip roasts were dug out of the freezer, prepared Santa Maria style. A little salt, pepper, garlic powder, sear them on both sides, and cook indirect until done to your satisfaction, which in my case is on the rare side.

They went on the grill with some potatoes cut into quarters and mixed with EVOO, salt, pepper, granulated garlic, basil, and rosemary. After the turn they were joined by some zucchini boats (zucchini sliced lengthwise, innards scooped out, and stuffed with spices, tomato, mushroom, and mozzarella cheese).


I pulled the tri-tips at about 140°F and let them rest for a few minutes before slicing. Like I said, I like my steak on the rare side…


I’m gonna have plenty of leftovers for a few days since I am single for another week. If all my lunches look like this, I ought to be in good shape, or at least well-fed…
