Mike’s tri-tip beef recipe

A delicious marinade and cooking method for tri-tip, inspired by something Mr Foodie saw on TikTok. No quantities given – just scale up or down depending on the size of your tri-tip.


  • Cumin seeds
  • Dried chillies
  • Minced garlic
  • Minced ginger
  • Turmeric
  • Molasses
  • Salt
  • Tri-tip of beef


  1. Toast the dried chillies and cumin seeds
  2. Bash them up in a pestle & mortar or spice grinder and then combine with the garlic, ginger, turmeric, molasses and salt to form a marinade paste
  3. Rub the marinade into the beef and cover in the fridge for a few hours
  4. Bake at 120 degrees C until the internal temperature of the meat reaches 47 degrees C
  5. Reverse sear the beef in a hot pan with butter and oil until browned on all sides (the meat will rise in temperature to around 52 degrees C)
  6. Rest for 5 minutes and serve in thick slices
  7. Goes well with the “Green Machine” from The Green Roasting Tin by Rukmini Iyer
