Costco Tri Tip (Easy To Cook)

Now that the weather is changing, I think it’s time to talk about one of my favorite BBQ favorites: Costco tri tip. The meat is marbled with a ton of fat and collagen. When cooked right, it’s fall-apart tender, juicy, and delicious.

What is Costco Tri Tip?

Costco tri-tip is a cut of meat that comes from the bottom sirloin or the back of the cow. It’s usually a bit cheaper than the other cuts of beef, but it’s still high quality and has a lot of flavors.

It’s great for roasting or grilling outdoors, but if you’re looking for something more tender, you might want to consider buying it in smaller portions (like 3-4 pounds), so you can make it into more manageable pieces.

If you want to try it out at home, we recommend cooking your tri-tip over indirect heat (on a grill). You’ll want to season it with salt and pepper just before putting it on the grill. Then leave it for about 20 minutes per side (or until cooked).

Ingredients

  • 1.5 lbs of tri-tip, about 1 inch thick
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 1 tsp pepper (or any other spice you like)
  • 3 tbsp butter (or oil if you prefer)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

How to cook Costco tri-tip

If you are looking for an affordable way to cook tri-tip, then Costco is the place for you. This article will explain how to cook Costco tri tip in just 15 minutes.

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 2: Season meat with salt and pepper, and then add olive oil (or other cooking oil of your choice) on both sides of the meat.

Step 3: Heat up the skillet on medium-high heat and add about 1 tablespoon of oil when it has warmed up for about 30 seconds.

Step 4: Place the tri-tip into the heated skillet so that it is browned on both sides (about 2-3 minutes per side).

Step 5: Place tri-tip into an oven-safe dish with foil over top and bake in preheated oven until internal temperature reaches 145 degrees Fahrenheit (about 15 minutes).

Cooking Tips

Tri-tip is a delicious cut of beef that requires little prep but can be tough to cook correctly. Here are some tips for getting the most out of your tri-tip:

  • Make sure your tri-tip is at room temperature before cooking. This will help it cook evenly and more quickly.
  • Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder. Then let marinate for at least an hour before cooking. This helps develop flavor in the meat and adds a nice crust when seared on the grill.
  • Sear the tri-tip on each side for about 4 minutes over high heat until browned, then finish in the oven at 300 degrees for about 10 minutes per pound (for medium rare).
  • Let rest for 10 minutes before slicing into thin slices across the grain of the meat.
