aka The Frazzled Mom
I figure a half pound of meat per person when grilling. It sounds like a lot, but it gives a good estimate. Some of my guests are big meat eaters, whereas others eat only a tiny portion. It evens out in the end.
I have purchased both the trimmed and untrimmed Tri Tip roast. The difference being that most of the fat has been removed from the trimmed roast. Though this is fine, I usually prefer the untrimmed so I can choose the amount of fat to remove and the amount to leave on. If the meat looks marbled, that’s usually a good sign of the best flavor. For some, the idea of fat in their meat may seem gross, but fat is what really helps flavor the meat, as well as making it juicy and tender. Untrimmed tends to be cheaper.
Once you have the roast bought and are finally home, follow these simple steps for an awesome barbecue that your meat loving guests will rave about.
