How to Cook Tri Tip Steak on the Stove – Additional tips

  • Let the meat stand at room temperature for at least half an hour before cooking.
  • If you use a non-stick skillet, you can skip the extra virgin olive oil.
  • The cast-iron skillet needs to be large enough for the steaks to cook in one layer. If you are preparing more steaks, cook them in batches.
  • The indicated cooking time is for a medium-rare steak. If you would like it well done, cook for 7 minutes per side. Usually, 1 lb of tri-tip steak needs 15 minutes to cook (well-done).
  • Let the steaks stand for at least 5 minutes before slicing across the grain.
  • Use a marinade for preparing a super juicy tri-tip steak. Use extra virgin olive oil, lemon, spices, and fresh herbs. Let it marinate overnight.
  • The internal temperature of the steak needs to reach 145°.

What to Do With Leftover Tri Tip

When you have leftover tri tip, there’s no need to repeat the same dish twice. Instead, transform the leftovers into new, delicious meals. Here are some creative ideas for repurposing your leftover tri tip:

Tri Tip Tacos

Turn your leftover tri tip into mouthwatering tacos by shredding the steak and warming it in a skillet with a little oil. Next, season the tri tip with your favorite taco seasoning. Serve in warm corn tortillas and top with your favorite taco toppings such as salsa, diced onions, cilantro, and lime.

 

Tri Tip Stir Fry

Transform your tri tip into a yummy stir fry. Heat some oil in a large skillet or wok and add thinly sliced tri-tip strips. Add your favorite vegetables such as bell peppers, onions, and snap peas, and stir fry everything together until the vegetables are tender-crisp. Toss in a tasty sauce of soy, garlic, ginger, and a little brown sugar, and serve over a bed of steamed rice or noodles.

 

Tri Tip Sandwiches

For a delicious sandwich, thinly slice your leftover tri tip and layer the meat on a toasted roll or baguette. Add your favorite toppings like lettuce, tomato, and red onion, and finish it off with a spread like garlic aioli, horseradish cream, or barbecue sauce.

 

Tri Tip Salads

Upgrade your salad game by adding bite-sized pieces of cooked tri tip to your favorite greens. Toss together mixed greens, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, and avocado, then top with the tri tip. Add a protein-packed punch with crumbled blue cheese or feta, and complete the salad with a light and tangy vinaigrette, such as a balsamic reduction or a lemon herb dressing.
