    I searched all over this website and I can't find a good marinade for tri-tip... so, rather than trash the search function and read every one of the Eleventyhundred pages of the What's For Dinner thread... anyone have a good, basic recipe for a marinade for tri-tip

    What's tri-tip?

    Depends what you're having marinaded. I can think of a simplified version of a marinade my family uses for chicken and (I think) fish.

    You're going to have to experiment with proportions - I'm not home now, so I don't have my recipe in front of me, but it goes something like this:

    1 large bottle of A-1 sauce
    1/4 large bottle of Worchester (sp?) sauce
    1 teaspoon onion flakes
    1 cup Caro syrup
    1 tablespoon ketchup

    brown sugar, to taste.

    Add all ingredients, stir thoroughly. Put tri-tip in marinade, ideally overnight.

    When you cook the tri-tip, drain the marinade into a sauce pan and warm over low heat.

    Oh, just looked it up.

    We call it "bottom sirloin".

    corn syrup in marinade? that sounds disgusting.

    i'd go with a dry rub instead of a marinade. take your favorite spices - some combo of paprika, pepper, salt, maybe thyme, oregano, basil and massage it in with your hands. get those hands dirty and really rub it in.

    Can't have tri-tip without garlic. It's not possible.

    Wow, I would so much rather have something called tri-tip than bottom sirloin.

    I just wish I could get a tri-tip cut. It's all about pork-butts in this neck of the woods.

    For a teryaki flavor...

    6 cups soy sauce (low-sodium or low-salt if you can get it)
    1/4 to 1/2 cup solid sugar

    1 onion finely, real finely, chopped
    1 bunch of finely chopped parsley
    1 full clove fresh garlic
    1 small leg of fresh ginger, finely chopped.
    A TBSP, give or take of fresh pepper
    A drop or two of Tabasco/hot sauce (which cuts the sweetness)

    Drop the soy sauce in a pot with everything else to dissolve most of the sugar. Add the last bit to your taste.

    Make sure the sugar is dissolved.

    I just gotta ask ...

    What kind of a moron, when logged on to the tubes we call the internets, comes to SportsJournalists.com for marinade advice when the google gives you A PAGE FULL OF INFO.

    Come on, slappy. I expect better from you.

    Tri-tip is GREAT marinated in anything. Might be a few good ideas if you google tri-tip and Santa Maria, home of the best tri-tip anywhere.

    Because sometimes, the best recipes are yours and no one elses.
