Servings 4


  • 2.5 lb Tri Tip Roast
  • 6 Cloves Roasted Crushed Garlic
  • 1 tbsp Kosher Salt
  • 1 tspn Fresh Black Pepper
  • 1/2 tspn Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Dried or fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup Olive oil


  • Set sous vide cooker to the desired temperature based on how well done you want the steak.
  • In a small bowl, combine all the spices: garlic, seasoning salt, kosher salt, pepper, sugar, and parsley. 1 tablespoons of dried parsley is fine, you can use 2-3 tablespoons if you are using fresh parsley.
  • Generously season both sides of the tri-tip with seasoning. Place the tri-tip in a zipper lock bag. Add the ¼ cup olive oil to the bag. Massage the meat to ensure it’s evenly covered with spices and oil.
  • Add the zipper lock bag to the water bath using the water immersion method or vacuum sealer to remove all air. Sous vide for 2 hours.
  • Remove and dry tri tip thoroughly. Rest for 10 minutes.
  • Heat a cast-iron skillet over high heat, or prepare a torch. Sear steak until golden brown, about 1 minute per side.
  • Slice each section of the tri tip against the grain. Serve alone or with your favorite sauce.
