“Even tri-tips need to get tipsy once in awhile! (Note: Remove most fat from tri tip, but leave some on the bottom side for flavoring meat while grilling.)”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix tequila, sesame oil, Dijon mustard, balsamic vinegar, garlic, salt, and pepper in a small bowl then place in a large zip-top bag with tri-tip. Marinate at least two hours before desired grilling time.
  2. Grilling Method: Pre-heat gas grill to 400 degrees F. Place meat on grill top-side down for 4-5 minutes for nice grill marks. Flip over, reduce heat slightly and close lid,
  3. To be prepared for flare-ups, keep an open beer by the grill and use as a 'fire extinguisher.' If no flare-ups occur, then enjoy the beer yourself!
  4. Cook for 20-25 minutes or until meat thermometer inserted in center reads 135-140 degrees F. for medium. Slice thin and enjoy with the fire extinguisher beer or the liquid type of margarita of your choice.
