Barbecue Tri-tip with the Against All Grain Rub

The "Cast" of Characters

A couple weekends ago I made a barbecue Tri-tip with a seriously delicious rub. I found the recipe in my Against All Grain- Meals Made Simple cookbook. I talked about this book in my Crazy About Cookbooks Part 1 last week. To read the post click here. The rub was super simple to throw together and I already had everything in my pantry. YESSS! I love when that happens.

Here is the recipe:
1/3 cup coconut crystals
1/4 cup paprika
1/4 cup chili powder
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon coarse sea salt
1 tablespoon dry mustard
2 teaspoons ground oregano leaves
2 teaspoons ground cumin
3/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper
1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper.

Just combine all the ingredients together. She says it keeps for up to 3 months which is awesome because it makes a TON of rub. I halved this recipe and I still have so much leftover.

For the tri-tip:
1. Spread 1/4 cup of barbecue dry rub on the tri-tip roast and let it sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.

2. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Sear all sides of the trip-tip and reduce the heat to medium-low. Continue grilling, covered, for 20-30 minutes until done. 

3. Remove the steak from the grill and let it rest for 15 mins. 

4. Slice the steak against the grain. 

**We drizzled a smoky barbecue sauce on top and served it with roasted red potatoes topped with rosemary and garlic. We also had steamed asparagus. YUM!

Hope you enjoy this recipe and if you try it out for yourself leave a comment and let me know :)
