I have a bit of a confession to make, I hate cleaning the grill and will wait as long as possible in hopes that my husband will notice how bad it is and clean it for me.  What makes it worse is I will stop grilling if it gets too dirty. I love grilling the flavors, how quick it cooks your food and it makes clean up so much easier.

Now you may be thinking “silly woman just ask your hubby to clean it and that way you can keep grilling”, let me just say if I ask, he won’t do it.  I know I know it makes no sense, but I am sure he hates cleaning it as much as I do.

So why am I telling you all of this, because he just cleaned the grill and I have been enjoying grilling nearly every day this week?  Having a clean grill is kind of like having a clean car.  It feels wonderful while it lasts, but eventually, it’s going to rain and get dirty, but you’re going to drive the heck out of it while its clean.

Tri Tip Roast with Sicilian Herb Sauce Paleo Gluten Free Recipe | ahealthylifeforme.comEnough about that and on to this fantastic Grilled Roast and Sicilian Herb Sauce.  Tri Tip Steak is inexpensive and if you have trouble finding it at your butcher you can just as easily use a flank steak.  Both have a bit of fat throughout so that you get a great flavor when grilled.  Just make sure that you use a knife and place several gashes about 1 inch apart over the entire surface of the meat {on both sides} this helps to cut through any tough fibers and you end up with a more tender roast.  The Sicilian Herb Sauce is so darn good I could drink the stuff.  I always end up with a bit extra and I save in the refrigerator for a few days because it is also great for grilled chicken or fish.

Do you love grilling as much as I do?  Who cleans your grill, do you hate it as much as me?

Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time15 mins
Total Time20 mins
Servings: 4

Ingredients


Sicilian Sauce:

  • 1 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme or 1 tablespoon fresh thyme chopped
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano or 1 tablespoon fresh oregano chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves peeled
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice {juice from 1 lemon}
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil


Roast:

  • 2-3 pound tri-tip beef roast or flank steak
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

Instructions

Sicilian Sauce:

  • Blend thyme, garlic, oregano and salt in a processor until garlic is finely chopped. While processor is running add lemon juice and olive oil. Season with pepper to taste. Set aside.

Roast:

  • Set out roast atlas 30 minutes before you plan on cooking and cut several gashes about 1 inch apart over the entire surface of the meat using a sharp knife, then turn and move the other way to create a crisscross or diamond pattern. Make cuts that are uniform in both length and depth, then sprinkle both sides of roast evenly with salt.
  • Heat grill to medium-high heat. Place roast on grill and cook 4 minutes and flip to cook an additional 4 minutes.
  • Turn off heat directly under your roast, close grill lid and cook an additional 6 minutes to10 minutes depending on the thickness of your roast.
  • Remove from heat and let meat rest at least 10 minutes before thinly slicing and serving with sauce over top.

Notes

Sauce can be made up to one day ahead refrigerated and brought back to room temperature.

    Gosh, this looks great! I love a good grilled steak. Thankful my hubby loves to grill and probably wouldn’t even trust me around it if I tried. 😉

  2. haha! Cleaning the grill is not on my list of things I clean. At all. Hubby does most of the grilling so he gets the responsibility to clean it. And I’m ok with that! lol. And.. I’m going to ask him very nicely to grill this roast for me.. because yum!!

  3. I love tri tip, it’s one of my favorite meats for grilling. I usually marinate it or just serve it plan but this herb sauce looks like a great one to try next time!

    I totally have chores like that as well that I will delay as looong as possible in the hopes that someone else will do it. I’m glad you got a sparkly clean grill because this steak needed to happen!

    I love beef, but I don’t remember often enough to make a sauce since it’s an additional prep step and my life is busy. But…..I do love using my fresh herbs…..and this sounds wonderful.

    1. The sauce is so simple to throw together. I like doing it earlier in the day, so I don’t have to worry about it during the hectic time of dinner. I threw the remaining over tomato and mozzarella last night at dinner and it was great!

    I tend to stay away from eating beef … I eat only seafood and chicken … I probably eat beef about 3-4 times in a year …
