Choose a nicely trimmed Tri Tip steak that has been well trimmed and has had all silver skin removed. Also if you are not sure of which way the grain of the beef runs, ask your butcher to lightly mark the grain with a knife mark so you can tell which way to correctly slice it after its been cooked. Always allow the meat to reach room temperature before cooking to allow for the most tender steaks. While your grill is preheating, liberally season with your choice of dry rubs ( I like Montreal Steak Seasoning from McCormick). Also rub with a light coating of olive oil. Place steak directly onto a preheated grill and cook on a medium flame setting for 3-4 minutes. Give the steak a 1/4 turn without flipping to achieve criss cross grill marks and cook for another 3-4 minutes. Flip the steak over and repeat the process. Turn front or rear burner off and place steak over the shutoff burner. Close lid and allow to slow cook for an additional 5-10 minutes or until desired doneness. Remove from grill and allow to rest for 5 minutes before slicing. Be sure to slice across the grain. Serve with a fresh garden salad.
