This simple Tri-Tip Steak recipe uses a powerful marinade to help tenderize the meat, followed by a hot and fast trip over the grill to seal in the flavors.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Marinating Time: 2 hours

Total Time: 2 hours, 20 minutes


  • 3 pound/1.4 kg beef tri-tip steaks
  • 1/4 cup/60 mL white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup/60 mL olive oil
  • 1/4 cup/60 mL soy sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon/5 mL black pepper


Combine ingredients, except tri-tip steaks. Mix well and pour into a resealable bag. Add tri-tip, close and refrigerate for 2 hours. Preheat grill.
