It’s easier than you might think to learn how to make the most flavorful marinated tri-tip steak. The marinade makes this cut of beef so juicy and tender.


  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce, tamari, or Bragg’s Liquid Aminos
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped fresh parsley or basil (or 2 teaspoons dried)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon honey or agave syrup
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds tri-tip steak


  1. Stir together soy sauce (or Liquid Aminos), olive oil, parsley or basil, lemon juice, red wine vinegar, honey or agave syrup, minced garlic, and ground black pepper in a baking dish with high sides. Place the beef in the dish and turn several times to coat with marinade. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight.
  2. Preheat grill to medium-high (about 350-400˚F). Place the steak in the center of the grill and cover. Cook for 7-8 minutes. Turn over and cook for 8 more minutes for medium rare, or until the meat reaches your desired level of doneness.
  3. Remove from the grill and set aside to rest for about 5 minutes. Slice diagonally and against the grain into 1/2-inch-thick pieces and serve.
