GRILLED TRI-TIP ROAST
2 tbsp. minced onion
1 tbsp. packed light brown sugar
2 tsp. bottled hot pepper sauce
1 tsp. chili powder
½ tsp. ground cumin
1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon
Salt to taste
Combine onion, brown sugar, hot pepper sauce, chili powder, cumin and cinnamon; spread evenly over surface of beef tri-tip roast. Place roast on grid over medium coals.
Grill 30-35 min. on open brazier, turning frequently (25-30 min in covered cooker). Roast will be rare to medium in its doneness.
Remove roast from grill. Allow roast to “stand” tented with foil for 10 minutes for easier carving. Carve roast across the grain into thin slices.
