Tri-tip steak (also called Santa Maria steak) comes from tri-tip roast, which is a triangular cut from the bottom sirloin. While it’s perfect on the grill without any help from a rub or marinade, it’s downright delicious on a ciabatta roll or marinated in beer and lime juice for steak tacos.
How to Cook It: Tri-tip steak doesn’t have a lot of fat, so it’s best cooked with high heat (the oven doesn’t get hot enough). Cook it on the grill, under the broiler, or pan sear it in a cast-iron or carbon steel pan on the stove. After it reaches 135°F, let it rest for 5 minutes, and slice it against the grain.
