Tri Tip Sandwich

This Tri Tip Sandwich recipe is my favorite tailgating food. I marinate the meat the day before in a Ziploc bag, filled with olive oil and spices.

When you’re ready for the game, just throw the steak in the ice chest with your supplies and you’re good to go. This recipe is great sliced and eaten on its own, or put into sandwich rolls topped with grilled onions, peppers and a horseradish sauce.

For a smoky flavor, try adding some grape wood to your grill.

You can make your own horseradish sauce for the tri tip sandwich by mixing some prepared horseradish with sour cream to your taste. Serve with grilled corn on the cob.

This will feed about 10 of your hungriest friends, and you can easily double this recipe to serve more!
