Servings 6


  • 1 tri-tip roast about 2 pounds
  • cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 6 large cloves garlic crushed
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger for this dish I like the flavor of dried ginger, if you prefer, you could use fresh, about 1 tablespoon grated
  • 1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper


  • Combine the soy sauce, balsamic, olive oil, garlic and ginger in a large zip-top bag. Add the meat and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours, up to 3 days.
  • Remove the meat from the marinade, reserving the marinade. Press ground pepper into the meat on both sides. Let sit 60 minutes.
  • Prepare the grill to medium-high. Place the meat on the grill rack that has been lightly coated with olive oil; grill, turning frequently and basting with the marinade until cooked to your desired degree of doneness; about 15 to 20 minutes for medium-rare. Remove the meat from the grill and allow it to sit for 5 - 7 minutes; cut into thin slices against the grain.
