How To Make Tri-Tip Sandwiches At Home

The recipe that I going to share today is for the Tri-Tip sandwiches. It is made with caramelized onions, melted cheese, and roasted Tri-Tip stacked between two thick slices of ciabatta.

Tri-tip is the 1.5-2.5 pounds of meat that comes from the bottom (tip) of the sirloin. It is also known by so many other names like California cut, Newport steak, sirloin tip, sirloin butt, culotte, bottom sirloin, top sirloin, and more. Tri-Tip is an excellent source of Niacin, Protein, Vitamin B12, Vitamin B6, and Zinc and a good Iron, Riboflavin, and Phosphorus source.

To make tri-tip sandwiches, mix paprika, cumin, chilli powder, salt, pepper, white sugar, brown sugar, and cayenne pepper a bowl. Apply it to the tri tip and let it marinate for 3 hours. Then, make a tangy paste in a bowl. After that grill the tip and the bread from each side. Layer the tangy paste, tri tip, provolone, arugula, and caramelized onion on the bread and serve.
