The Perfect Tri-Tip Roast


Delight your guests with this tender, juicy  Tri-tip Roast. The simple 5-ingredient rub adds the perfect blend of salty sweetness to a popular cut of beef.


  • 1 24-28 ounce Wellborn 2R Beef tri-tip roast
  • 1/2 cup coarse kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup cracked black pepper
  • 1/4 cup granulated honey (or granulated raw sugar)
  • 2 tablespoons granulated garlic
  • 2 tablespoons onion powder


  1. Combine salt, pepper, granulated honey, garlic and onion powder.
  2. Evenly rub tri-tip roast with 3 to 4 tablespoon of spice rub. Store excess Santa Maria spice rub in an airtight container in a cool, dry cupboard.
  3. Cover tightly in plastic wrap or zipper-locking plastic bag. Refrigerate at least 2 hours, or overnight for more intense flavor.
  4. Preheat oven to 450°F. Place roast in a shallow roasting pan fitted with a rack. Roast 15 minutes, then reduce oven to 350°F and continue cooling approximately 1 hour for medium doneness (135-140°F).
  5. Move to a clean cutting board, tent with foil and let rest 10 minutes. Slice thinly against the grain to serve.
  6. Santa Maria spice rub recipe yields approximately 2 cups, enough for at least five 3 pound tri-tip roasts.
