Karl’s Barbecued Mulled Port Tri-tip

I decided to barbecue some tri-tip for Memorial Day. I have done this roast many different ways—California Fusion, Sichuan, Salt and Pepper with Green Pepper Sauce, Moroccan, Santa Maria style, Teriyaki, Cajun, and just plain Barbequed. What could I do that was new and different? I looked at some recipes marinating beef in red wine, but they seemed mundane.

Karl’s California Fusion Barbecued Tri-tip

A barbecue is very traditional for a Labor Day weekend, this year I decided to do tri-tip. Tri-tip is a very popular beef roast to barbecue in California—popularized in Oakland and Santa Maria in the 1950’s. The problems with this cut—it’s thick fat cap and odd shape—leads much of the rest of the world to slice this roast into steaks. The Hispanic world—of which California is really still a part of—knows better. Done right it is flavorful, moist and juicy—of course done wrong it is carbonized, dry and chewy.

Karl’s Barbecued Sichuan Tri-tip

Last Sunday I made a barbequed Sichuan chicken. It was so successful that I decided to do something similar with a beef tri-tip. Beef will stand up to stronger flavors than chicken, so I added some onion, chili flakes and white pepper to the sauce.

Karl’s Salt and Pepper Tri-tip with Green Pepper Sauce

I decided to experiment with pickled green pepper (Piper nigrum ). This is a new spice for my family, so I plan to go cautiously. When I did my surf and turf for Miriam’s birthday I discovered just how good a tri-tip could be with simply salt and pepper.
