Ingredients
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tri-tip steak, about 1 1/2 to 2 pounds
Directions

Prepare a fire in a barbecue. When coals are hot, adjust rack so it is about 3 inches from the coals.

Combine the garlic salt, pepper, and salt and rub over the meat. Sear the meat over hot coals for about 6 minutes per side, turning once. Adjust the rack so the meat is farther from coals, about 6 or 8 inches, and continue to cook meat, turning once or twice, until done to your liking, 20 to 30 minutes. Slice meat across grain and serve.
