Magic happens when Meyer lemon meets raw meat. Salt-cured citrus brings out beef’s natural flavors. Enhances it. Makes it a better version of itself.
1.5 lb beef tri-tip steak
1.5 TBS If & When Preserved Meyer Lemon Paste
Fresh ground pepper
Combine paste and pepper. Coat meat with a thin layer, not to excess.
Place meat in fridge for desired marinating time (we recommend 2+ hours in the fridge for strong flavor, but even 30 minutes will impact taste).
Remove meat from refrigerator and bring to room temperature on counter.
Preheat grill to medium-high.
Grill on each side to develop a dark brown crust (about 5 minutes on the first side, 8 minutes on the other).
Remove to indirect heat and continue cooking until the internal temperature is 130-135 degrees. We like 130 for medium rare.
Let the meat rest and redistribute the juices for 10 minutes before slicing thinly against the grain.
