Recipe by Chef John
"We're going to roast a cut of beef, the tri-tip, that many have grilled during the summer. It works so perfectly for this, and it's a very nice size for a dinner party. You can let the uncooked roast age overnight in the refrigerator if you like. The meat is so tender and juicy that you simply have to give it a try."

Pepper lovers dream! Made exactly as specified in recipe and video. Don't be afraid of the pepper and be sure to use the balsamic vinegar in the sauce. They are the perfect blend of spicy and savory sweet. Just like all of the Chef John's recipes we have tried this was so simple to make and so delicious.
This turned out much better than I expected. Very tender. Used the gravy over white rice, also very good.
I am not a good cook but my husband said that this steak was delicious. It was easy to prepare. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Sunday
Thank you very much for the recipe it is wonderful I rally like it so much . It is going to be a dinner for my family. We use to be together on sunday for dinner so I think I will be like a chef. jajajaja. I did whatever you said. I live in Rosarito, BCN in Mexico and I enjoy a lot Allrecipies. Thank you again.
incredibly easy to make, and amazingly good. I mixed the ground pepper in oil before spreading it onto the meat
I am in Florida and when I asked around almost every place from Sams club to my local butcher said they had never sold a tri-tip, not shocked as it is a west coast thing I grew up with a long time ago. Soooo, I decided why not go big. So I did it with a filet. Lets just say it was amazing. I cooked it a few minutes longer because my wife likes well done (my kids and I have no idea how she can eat it like that, may as well order beef jerky) but it was amazing. And the sauce was unbelievable.
I followed this roast beef and gravy recipe to a T, and they turned out amazing! I did however use a different cut of roast beef. It was so tender, very flavorful, so juicy and just so delicious. Thank you for sharing this easy to make recipe.
Loved it. I have ALWAYS grilled Tri-Tip. Decided to try...I Followed the Recipe it was Great! May be too Peppery for some...will do it again!
