  • Heat barbecue for indirect grilling: Light one side of barbecue, leaving other side unlit. Close lid; heat barbecue to 350ºF.
  • Mix coffee and seasonings until blended; rub evenly onto roast. Place on grate over unlit area; cover. Grill 20 min., monitoring for consistent grill temperature. Meanwhile, combine remaining ingredients; let stand at room temperature until ready to serve.
  • Turn roast; grill 10 to 12 min. or until 145ºF. Remove from barbecue. Let stand 10 min. before slicing. Serve with tomato mixture.

How to Carve the Roast

A tri-tip roast is shaped like a boomerang. For best results, partially slice the cooked roast against the grain on one side, then turn the roast and slice against the grain on the other side.

Food Facts

Depending upon where you live, the beef tri-tip roast might instead be labelled as one of the following cuts: California cut, bottom sirloin tip, triangle cut, bottom sirloin primal cut, Santa Maria cut, Newport steak or bottom sirloin butt. When in doubt, ask your butcher for assistance.
