Mini Tri-Tip Sandwiches / #BBQWeek

This post is sponsored in conjunction with #BBQWeek. I received product samples from sponsors to use in creating #BBQWeek recipes. However, all opinions are mine alone.


Today is day 4 of #BBQWeek, and I made a super special sandwich, that I think you will love! If you have ever had a Tri-Tip Sandwich, you know how wonderfully moist and delicious they are. Simply awesome! The first time I ever had tri-tip was on a trip to visit a friend of my husbands in California. They were participating in a neighborhood fiesta, and they were serving tri-tip tacos! Talk about amazing!, and I have been hooked ever since!
But tri-tip is not as easy to find here in North Carolina, so ever since we moved here, 5 years ago, I have been on the search for this elusive meat treat! Finally, I found it a few weeks ago at a local grocery. Talk about excited! So I bought some, grilled it, made mini sandwiches, and the rest is history! (and so were the sandwiches, which were gobbled up quickly) I hope you give it a try!

Mini Tri-Tip Sandwiches

(printable recipe at end of post)

2 -2 1/2 lb Tri-Tip Roast
The Great Steak of Texas Seasoning ~Adams Extracts
Mini Buns
Fresh Avocado
Onion Slices
Lettuce


This is how the tri-tip comes from the grocer.
Open the package and sprinkle the seasoning all over the steak, on both sides. Rub the seasoning so it gets all over the meat.
Place the steak on a hot grill. Cook for 2 minutes, then turn, marking the steak. Continue to do this until the steak has cooked for a total of 8 minutes, 2 minutes at a time, turning around and over each 2 minutes. Once the steak is marked, turn the steak over every minute for 6-10 minutes, until the steak reaches 135 degrees internally. That is the optimum temperature for tri-tip.
Allow the steak to rest for 5 minutes.
Slice the tri-tip thin and against the grain.
Isn't that gorgeous?! Make your sandwiches and enjoy!
Thank you for joining me today! I am so glad you stopped by!
There are so many great ways to enjoy tri-tip! Taco's are amazing made with it, sandwiches, like I did here, just slicing and eating it when it is so moist and tender, or bake it in the oven and put it on pizza!
