Hi Friends! As you are well aware, I have not been the best cook in the world nor did I enjoy cooking that much. I was a 'much rather do the dishes' kind of gal. As you also know I have been experimenting over the past couple of years and have been getting kind of good at this whole cooking thing that I once thought was completely overrated. :o)
Although I don't cook often (thank you Hubber), I do dabble in it from time to time. Mostly when the family is at softball practice, lessons, etc. I stay home so I can have dinner ready when they get home.
Each time I try something new, and succeed, it reminds me that cooking isn't so bad after all. Guess what? I am still kind of liking it!
Sooo ... my big deal is a tri-tip. Hubber seasoned it on Saturday night so it would be nice and ready by last night. Daughter had softball stuff so I was tasked with BBQing that big piece of meat. I will admit, I was a little scared that I wouldn't do it right.
Thanks to Hubber's excellent directions it turned out very delicious! And we have leftovers! YUMMA!
Look, if I can do it so can any novice, trying to get better, kind of cook.
Here's what I did (per Hubber): Light the right side burner and the left side burner only. Close the lid and let the BBQ get to 400 degrees. Once at 400 degrees put the tri-tip in the middle and cook with the burners on low. Pull off when the inside temp of the tri-tip is 140 degrees. That's it! I was paranoid so I checked the temp every half hour. In an hour and a half it was done! mmm mmm good!
I think I am ready to be on Hell's Kitchen! Bring on Gordon, I can take him. :o)
PS, I was so worried about the meat that I forgot to do a veggie. Whoopsies!
