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

  1. Prepare a fire in a barbecue. When coals are hot, adjust rack so it is about 3 inches from the coals.
  2. 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.
