How to Sous Vide Beef Tri-Tip Roast

Tri-tip is a flavorful cut of meat from around the sirloin region. It is usually grilled and cut across the grain to help make it more tender and with sous vide it can benefit from extended cooking times.

The longer you cook tri-tip the more tender it will become, so you can choose your time according to what you are trying to accomplish. For a more traditional texture you can cook it until it is just heated through, usually 3 to 4 hours. Eight hours will give you a more tender, but still toothy result and 24 hours will result in super tender meat. I usually prefer somewhere in the 10 to 12 hour range.

Sous Vide Tips on Tri-Tip - Ask Jason

Placeholder My local stores and butchers don't carry much tri-tip meat, so I've only cooked it a few times. So I turn to sirloin steak and strip steak as a replacement meat. Unfortunately, I don't have many personal good tips for tri-tip specific, but I know a lot of people who love it. It's my understanding that you sous vide tri-tip to a steak-like temperature. You could select 131°F (55°C) if you like a medium rare steak. Some people enjoy tri-tip just heated through for 2 or 3 hours but others like to cook it a little bit longer to tenderize it.
