How to Make It

  1. Place tri-tip pieces into a resealable plastic bag. Combine marinade ingredients and pour over meat.  Massage marinade into meat, seal bag, and place into refrigerator for 4-8 hours.
  2. Preheat grill for medium-high meat. Remove steaks from bags and place onto grill. Cook for 20 minutes, turning occasionally.
  3. During the last half of cooking, wrap tortillas in aluminum foil and add to the grill. Turn a few times while tri-tip is finishing up. Once the beef has reached your desired doneness, remove it and the tortillas from grill. Allow meat to rest for 5 minutes before carving.
