  1. step

    Season tri-tip

    • For best results, season tri-tip at least 4 hours or up to 24 hours before cooking.
    • In small bowl, stir together kosher salt, black pepper, brown sugar, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne, paprika, chili powder, dry mustard and cumin.
    • Evenly rub BBQ seasoning all over tri-tip roast and place in resealable plastic bag.
    • Pour ¼ cup cooking oil into bag, seal bag and rub all over to evenly coat tri-tip with oil.
    • Refrigerate until ready to cook.

  2. step

    Roast tri-tip

    • Remove tri-tip from bag and place in Zones 1, 2 and 3 of Brava glass tray. Make sure thickest portion of tri-tip is on left side of tray.
    • Slide glass tray into bottom shelf.
    • Select “BBQ Rubbed Tri-Tip” on your oven touchscreen and follow instructions.
    • After plugging in TempSensor, insert it horizontally through center of thickest portion of tri-tip.

  3. step

    Slice tri-tip & serve

    • When your food is done, transfer tri-tip to cutting board and slice across the grain. This will stop the cooking process and maintain your preferred doneness.
    • If desired, sprinkle with flaky sea salt.
