BBQ once, eat 3 healthy meals!

A favorite in our house is BBQ Tri Tip. Its easy and one big roast will yield 3+ healthy meals. We purchase untrimmed Tri Tips. When cooking on the BBQ, the fat cap helps keep the roast moist. We use a combo of seasonings but our favorites are Cow Camp Garlic Season-all and Pappy's Santa Maria style seasoning.
Season the meat liberally with your selected seasoning. Here I used Pappy's.  I prefer to use a charcoal Webber BBQ for cooking roasts. Prepare your BBQ for indirect heat and cook the roast until the center reaches 145 degrees for med-rare and 160 degrees for medium. 45 minutes  is usually enough time. Let it rest for 5 minutes and slice against the grain. 

Meal #1 - sliced tri-tip, steamed broccoli and wild rice. 
Meal # 2- Tri-tip tacos with all the fixings. 
Meal # 3 - Steak salad with ranch dressing. Pictured above.

Remember that a serving size of lean beef is 3 oz. In those 3 oz. you get 10 essential nutrients including protein, B12, selenium, zinc, niacin, B6, phosphorus, choline, iron and riboflavin. For more info please go to
