We show you how to improve your standard Santa MariaTri-Tip recipe.  

Santa Maria Tri-Tip Recipe Glaze Ingredients:

To begin making the glaze we'll need to build the sauce first getting some butter into a saucepan.  We want to melt the butter until it begins to foam.  We'll want to bring the onions in to sauté for 5 minutes. Since this is a glaze you won't need to bring the onions to any real color such as golden but you will need to have them softened. Add remaining ingredients; reduce heat to low and cook until mixture thickens about 30 minutes or so, stirring frequently. After the second glazing on the Tri-Tip, return the glaze to the stove and simmer for an additional 15 to 20 minutes until the glaze gets sticky. Serve with the Tri-Tip on the dinner table.

To cook Tri-Tip follow these steps.

Season your Tri-Tip with Jake's Santa Maria Style Dry Rub (BUY NOW!). Allow Jake's Barbecue Seasoning Rub to marinate on the Santa Maria Tri-Tip Recipe no less than 45 minutes before grilling. Barbecue grilling is the preferred method but your Tri-Tip can be oven cooked if desired. After seasoning and marinating place your Tri-Tip on the hottest part of the grill. Coals should be ashed over completely white before adding the meat. Sear the meat for 3-4 minutes per side. Once done move the meat to the coolest portion of the gill. Cover the grill with the lid and cook for approximately 15 minutes. After the 15-minute interval turn the Tri-Tip over and begin checking the Tri-Tip with a meat thermometer to determine the internal temperature, which in turn determines how well to cook the meat.

As the meat nears 15-20 Degrees of your desired temperature begin applying the Bourbon Glaze. Fully cover the Tri Tip and allow the glaze to cook on for 5 minutes, turn and apply again. Coat the meat at least 3 times on both sides ultimately allowing the glaze to bake on for fifteen minutes or more. Once done allow the meat to cool for 2-3 minutes then go to the cutting board. The glaze can be reapplied to the meat one last time just before cutting if you desire. Follow the scale below:


Rare 125-130ºF 140ºF
Medium Rare 130-140ºF 150ºF
Medium 140-150ºF 160ºF
Medium Well 155-165ºF 170ºF
