Tri-Tip Steak with Horseradish Sauce


Tri-Tip Steak

  • Lawry’s seasoned salt
  • Lawry’s seasoned pepper or another pepper mix
  • Lawry’s garlic powder or another granulated garlic
  • Tri-Tip steaks

Horseradish Sauce

  • 1 cup well-drained prepared horseradish
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • Few drops Tabasco sauce


  1. Make a rub consisting of equal parts seasoned salt, seasoned pepper and granulated garlic.
  2. The night before you’ll be grilling, rub the tri-tip liberally with the rub from above. Wrap the meat in plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. This is also a great time to combine all the horseradish sauce ingredients in a bowl, mix and refrigerate.
  3. Set out the meat for an hour before cooking to bring it up to room temperature.
  4. Cook on grill or smoker over med heat for 35-45 mins, turning occasionally. Cook to 135F for medium rare, 145F for medium, 155F for medium well.
  5. Remove from grill and let rest for 15 minutes before slicing.
