1/4 cup garlic powder
1/4 cup dehydrated onion flakes
2 tablespoons crushed Szechuan pepper corns. Mix well.
This beef rub turned out to be great on these tri tips! A very mild heat with a slight floral taste brought out the flavor of this grilled beef! For this cook, I trimmed off all of the fat cap and silver skin from the wagyu tri tip roasts. I seasoned them liberally with the above beef rub and let them rest a bit before hitting the Santa Maria Grill. I cooked the tri tip over a medium high heat, over lump and walnut wood, flipping (a lot) until they reached 125ºF. At this point I lowered the cooking grate and gave them a bit more sear. The end result was perfect medium rare, with wall-to-wall color. Send your requests here: ballisticrequests@co
