I recently posted a blog about tri-tip marinade. I was looking for the secret to the recipe. I have a friend that is currently trying out one of the recipes this weekend. It seems everyone is sharing some type of recipe for the blackened tri-tip. Here are a few that I found on the web:
1-1/2 Cup Brewed Coffee 1 Cup Red Wine
1/2 Cup Olive oil
2/2 Cup Molasses
3/3 Cup Balsamic vinegar
4/3 Cup Tamari Sauce
5/3 Cup Worcestershire Sauce 2 Tbsp Chili Powder 6 cloves Garlic
This makes enough for 4 good size tri-tips. I put it all in the blender and give it a good spin.
Place the steaks in a plastic zip top bag. Add marinade. Remove as much air from the bag
as possible. Place in bottom section of refrigerator. I have had good results with 48-72
hours of marinade time. The steaks will be a very dark, almost black color.
For grilling, I remove steaks from refrigerator 1 hour before. Turn steaks every 5 minutes
until they hit 125 degrees for medium rare. Let rest at least 15 minutes. Slice thin against the grain.
1-1/2 Cup Brewed Coffee 1 Cup Red Wine 1/2 Cup Olive oil 1/2 Cup Molasses 1/3 Cup Balsamic vinegar 1/3 Cup Tamari Sauce 1/3 Cup Worcestershire Sauce 2 Tbsp Chili Powder 2 Tbsp Onion Powder 2 Tbsp Garlic Powder 1 Tbsp Marmite (or Vegemite, in a pinch) Marinate for at least 3-4 days in a tightly sealed ziploc bag. Cook steak to 125. Let rest for 10 minutes.
1-1/2 cup brewed coffee
1 cup red wine
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup molasses
1/3 cup Balsamic vinegar
1/3 cup Tamari sauce
1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbsp chili powder
6 cloves garlic
The dark brown sugar is the key.;5 tablespoons kosher salt , 6 tablespoons brown sugar, 1 teaspoon pulverized crushed red pepper, 2 teaspoons pimenton (Smoked Spanish Paprika) 2 teaspoon garlic powder Rub & put in Ziploc baggie 1 - 3 days, the longer the blacker, the sugar caramelizes and makes a crust on the steak.
Now I don't know if any of these recipes are tried and true. The best way to cook is to taste the food while cooking and to practice recipes time and time again. The best recipes have lots of reviews and these are the ones that are of value.
I will being trying these recipes this week on steak, fish, and pork chops.
I will let you know which 1 is the BEST.
