Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

½ cup lime juice
½ cup cilantro (chopped)
½ cup olive oil
⅓ cup soy sauce
¼ cup tequila
7 garlic cloves (minced)
2 tsp lime zest
2 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp ground black pepper
1 (3lb) loin tri-tip roast
1 tbsp sour cream
1 ripe avocado
⅓ cup fresh cilantro (minced)
2 cloves of garlic (minced)
salt and pepper (to taste)
1 tbsp olive oil
½ tbsp red wine vinegar
1 lime (juiced)


Combine ½ lime juice, ½ cup cilantro, ½ cup olive oil, soy sauce, tequila, 7 cloves garlic, lime zest, cumin, oregano and pepper in a medium casserole dish.

Place the tri-tip in the marinade to cover both sides.

Marinate the tri-tip for at least 4 hours (preferably over night), flipping occasionally.

Grill the tri-tip over medium-high heat until cooked to desired temperature (about 8 minutes per side for medium rare). Cover and allow to rest for 10 minutes.

For the sauce, combine the sour cream, avocado and remaining ingredients and whip with a fork.

Top steak with sauce to serve.
