American Wagyu Tri-tip Roast
The Juicy Details
Though lesser known to many carnivores, tri-tips are a cherished cut of beef amongst meat lovers. That's because each bite packs a punch of robust beefiness that compares to Good Silver's American Wagyu Brisket, but comes with the added benefit of much shorter cook times. And while you'll never hear us complain about a day spent smoking one of our marvels of marbling, we understand you don't always have the time to devote to it.
Instead, you can grill over high heat, oven roast, or smoke one of our American Wagyu Tri-Tips until the internal temperature reaches 135 degrees for medium-rare beef bliss. Our Wagyu Tri-Tips' intense flavors and tenderness come from the extensive marbling throughout this triangular cut. So whether you're already a fanatic for our American Wagyu Tri-Tip or want to find out what all the hype is about, be sure to include this triangle of tastiness in your next order.
We love a smoked American Wagyu Tri-Tip at Good Silver, but not everyone has a smoker. So let's focus on how to make a melt-in-your-mouth Santa Maria-style roast that's sure to have family and friends begging for more. As with all of our delicious premium beef, start by taking the tri-tip out of the refrigerator to bring it to room temperature.
Use salt and pepper and any other seasonings or flavor-enhancing rubs you prefer to beef up your roast. Next, place your American Wagyu Tri-Tip in an oven preheated to 450 degrees and roast for 15 minutes. When the timer goes off, drop the temperature to 350 degrees and roast until it reaches an internal temperature of 130 to 140 degrees, then remove and let rest for at least 15 minutes.
Thinly slice your roast across the grain to ensure each bite is tantalizingly tender and tasty. Our American Wagyu Tri-Tip is great on its own, topped with chimichurri, or as the star of a fantastic sandwich.
As a staple of California cuisine, Santa Maria steaks are often paired with avocado beet salads in a bright, refreshing citrus vinaigrette that perfectly contrasts the richness of this cut. Grilled corn, sweet potato fries, or goat cheese and peach salad all make excellent sides as well.
Your juicy, tender, and delicious American Wagyu Tri-Tip has more than enough flavor to stand up to bold Syrahs and Malbecs. Still, it’s also beautifully complemented by a California Pinot Noir. If you'd prefer suds with your meal, look to a rich amber ale or bitter IPA to cut through the marbled richness. To stay with the California vibe of Santa Maria Tri-Tip, cocktail lovers will enjoy the slightly sweet and acidic flavors of a Bees Knees. Now all that's left to do is sip, slice, and savor.
