Savory Grilled Tri-Tip Steak Recipe

Tri-Tip Steak

Prep time: 15 minutes Cook time: 35-45 minutes Total time: 50-60 minutes 


  • 2 to 2.5 lbs Farm Field Table tri-tip steak
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • Optional: fresh chopped parsley for garnish


      1. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the minced garlic, olive oil, red wine vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, honey, black pepper, salt, smoked paprika, onion powder, oregano, and thyme. Whisk the ingredients together to create a marinade.

      2. Place the tri-tip steak in a large, sealable plastic bag or a shallow dish. Pour the marinade over the steak, ensuring that it is well-coated. Seal the bag or cover the dish and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or ideally, overnight to allow the flavors to fully penetrate the meat.

      3. Remove the marinated tri-tip steak from the refrigerator about 30 minutes before grilling to allow it to reach room temperature. This will help ensure even cooking.

      4. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat, around 400°F (204°C).

      5. Once the grill is preheated, remove the tri-tip steak from the marinade, allowing any excess to drip off. Discard the leftover marinade.

      6. Place the tri-tip steak on the grill, fat side down, and sear for 4-5 minutes until nicely browned. Flip the steak and sear the other side for an additional 4-5 minutes.

      7. After both sides have been seared, reduce the grill temperature to medium-low, around 325°F (163°C). Continue grilling the tri-tip steak for an additional 25-35 minutes, or until it reaches your desired level of doneness. Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature: 130°F (54°C) for medium-rare, 140°F (60°C) for medium, and 150°F (65°C) for medium-well.

      8. Once the tri-tip steak has reached your preferred internal temperature, remove it from the grill and let it rest on a cutting board for 10 minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute and ensures a tender, juicy result.

      9. After resting, slice the tri-tip steak against the grain into thin, even slices. This will ensure the most tender bites. Arrange the slices on a serving platter.

      10. If desired, garnish the sliced tri-tip steak with a sprinkle of fresh chopped parsley for added color and flavor.

      11. Serve the savory grilled tri-tip steak alongside your favorite side dishes, such as a crisp green salad, grilled vegetables, or a warm, crusty bread.

      12. Enjoy your delicious and tender tri-tip steak with friends and family!
