Tri-Tip Roast
Picanha roast—also called Tritip Roast, sirloin cap roast, rump cap, or rump cover roast—is a delicious cut that is still relatively affordable, despite higher beef costs. So now is a great time to give it a try. You and your family will be surprised how satisfying this cut can be, if prepared properly.

  • Servings: 4



  1. Thaw the tri-tip roast and remove roast from the packaging. Pat roast dry with paper towels.
  2. Pre-heat your grill to 275 degrees.
  3. If the fat cap on the Picanha is thicker than you like, trim it. It should be around 1/4" thick.
  4. Season the Picanha liberally with salt, pepper and garlic powder.
  5. Place the Picanha on your grill away from the flame. Use indirect heating to cook the roast until the internal temperature reaches 115 degrees.
  6. At this point, sear the Picanha. Move the roast to the flame side of the grill. Flip the roast every minute or so until the internal temperature reaches 123-127 degrees. Check the temperature regularly.
  7. Once the roast has reached temperature, remove from the grill and let it rest for 5 minutes.
  8. Slice the roast thinly.
  9. Enjoy the crisp crust and edge-to-edge pink tenderness inside!
