This rotisserie tri-tip roast has a great slow cooked flavor. The spice rub adds a rich southwestern touch. This dish would go well ​with grilled vegetable kebabs or grilled potatoes.

What You'll Need

  • 2 to 3 pounds (900 to 1300 g) tri-tip roasts
  • 2 tablespoons (30 mL) ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons (30 mL) olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon (15 mL) minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons (10 mL) ground coriander
  • 2 teaspoons (10 mL) coarse salt 
  • 1 teaspoon (5 mL) paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 mL) cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 mL) black pepper

How to Make It

1. Mix together spices and olive oil in mixing bowl. Make shallow slits along the meat and rub in spice mixture. Place in a resealable bag anywhere from 4 hours to overnight.

2. Preheat grill and slide tri-tips onto the rotisserie skewer. Secure prongs and place on the grill on high heat for 20 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-high for the remainder of the cooking time or when the internal temperature is between 150 to 165 degrees F/65 to 75 degrees C.

3. Allow the roast to rest for 15 minutes before slicing.
