Tri Tip seems to be a little foreign to people outside of California. But if you can get your hands on a tri tip, do yourself a favor and grab it to make this tri tip cheese steak sandwich recipe!
I reversed seared a trip tip, low and slow to get it all nice and smokey. It really comes through and with the rub I gave it makes it perfect for slicing thin for cheese steak!
Make sure you get good bread to hold up to the meaty, cheesiness of this tri tip cheese steak sandwich.
I made the mistake of getting STORE BRAND hoagie rolls. every roll fell apart, and I had to basically piece it together to save the photos.
So yeah. Learn from my mistakes and get the good stuff!
For the seasoning I kept it simple. Kosher salt, coarse black pepper, and a little garlic powder. Let the meat flavor take over since it will be taking on so much bbq flavor from cooking for about 45 minutes before you sear it off.
And you’re loading it up with lovely grilled onions, bell pepper and cheese.
I’d try this out with some slow cooked smoked brisket too!
