One of our favorite family meals is tritip steak.
It’s a simple and frugal cut of beef. Everyone likes it. It doesn’t take very long on the gas grill. We seldom have leftovers.
I rub spices and olive oil into the meat and let it marinate for at least an hour.
It takes about 20-30 minutes on the grill for medium rare.
Gorgeous thin slices against the grain for tenderness.
We serve tritip with rice or potatoes, salad, fried broccoli or grilled asparagus.

Pour olive oil over steak, turning to coat. Let sit for at least an hour in the fridge.
Grill steak over medium heat on gas grill for about 20-30 minutes, or until thermometer reads about 120*
Let rest for 5-10 minutes. Slice thinly against the grain and serve with reserved juices.
